Road Atlas?

Top O The Mornin' to ya! We just bought a FR Silverback 33iK which is a little higher/ taller than our previous 5th wheel. We're wondering what everyone uses as far as a road atlas that will give us accurate heights on bridges, overpasses, etc. A friend suggested the Rand McNally Truckers Atlas but just wondering what you all use.
Thanks!

The truckers atlas is one of the route planning tools we use to verify routes that the online mapping tools suggest. Also use a Garmin RV specific GPS while in route.

We use RV770 Garmin, it keep us away from low bridges. I use paper maps but not for low bridges. The first thing you want to do is hook up your camper and take the truck and camper and measure how tall your camper is. Then you will know what bridge or overpass you can get under. My Cedar Creek is 13ft tall.

Don't forget to watch gas station canopies and tree branches on the right.
