13 feet 7 inches our dealership measured for us. Gave us labels to put on our truck dash so we could remember once we come to an underpass or toll booth.

we got 13 feet 3 inches (from the top of the low profile a/c) but that was NOT hitched to truck. Will go a SOLID 14 foot for height. Width is 101 inches with both side slides out 155.5 inches (13 foot across)........ Still have to get box length and then complete length. Tomorrow is soon enough.

Thank goodness someone has a little more energy and interest in measuring it than you have.

Thanks Dave. Probably got more energy that you will ever know! However with this new model only being out a few months the inconsistencies are crazy. The word from Bryan Randall at Forest River "the height his 13' 1" to the top of 2nd a/c. The dealer didn't know jack about our unit. The owners manual looks like circa 1990. None of our components match the manual.
Also the weekend I picked up unit we had tornadoes and crazy lightning in Georgia. Not good time to get up on 13 foot roof!!
Maybe more brains than energy. " insert goofy smiley emoticon here".

A solid 14 feet? That means paying REALLY close attention to all those clearance heights on the Interstate highway system. The physical measure of my Silverback is 13 feet when hooked to the truck.

Funny you should mention that. Actually, the Palomino owner's manual has improved since I purchased my 2008 Sabre. The one it came with looked like a high school project!
You are right, though. The manual with my 2013 Columbus leaves a lot to be desired. It's a shame with such a beautiful trailer with so many bells and whistles that the owner's manual doesn't match. Maybe Palomino will listen to the owners and improve the manual.
Luckily, I have experience with most of the systems used in my Columbus so the manual wasn't necessary. We also had a good PDI walk around, the tech answered my questions about the new stuff.
