Yes, get some they do help. Lots of choices but most will say xchock or roto chock. You can also make you own.

The bunkhouse door has not been an issue with us as we opted for the superlounge vs. the dinnette.

I hope you enjoy many good RV'ing experiences!!
I drove behind my husband and winced every time he went under the traffic lights. There was plenty of clearance but it did look close.

One thing that did give us trouble is a dip in the road where we turn around to back up the driveway. The rear stabilizer jacks dragged across the road. Going to have to find a different way to cross the dip or ask the town to fill in the gully. :-)

I noticed you have the 2nd AC also. Seems like it's right at the peak. I measured from the ground to the top of the coach and then from the coach to the top of the 2nd AC. I allowed another 2-3" due to the curve of the roof and came up with 13'6", which my diesel pushing buddy tells me is the legal limit. I have noticed a few interstate bridges with clearances of 14'1" and the semi's in front of me barely cleared...talk about pinching a hole in your seat

That was what I came up with as well. My first drive under a 14'2" bridge had me just a little bit nervous and I swear I heard the radio antenna hit (had the sunroof open and drove really slow).......

I've been eyeballing the GPS for RV's where you can input your height, length etc and it is supposed to keep you out of trouble. Also gives you info on fuel and food at interstate exits, campgrounds etc.. My buddy with the diesel pusher has one and he says he sleeps better. That is a not to far down on my list of "wants" but I just dropped $ on the Progressive EMS Surge Protector...now that was on the top of my list and I will sleep better

My dry weight was 12,300 but it weighed more than that by the time I picked it up do to dealer-installed options (slide covers and UltraFab Eliminators) and I drove off the lot with a partial freshwater tank. My actual wet running weight scaled was 13,800 but even that is lower than normal for us. I assume our normal weight is usually around 14,500.
