Low Clearances have been mentioned a couple of times. For this initial trip, I plan to stay on Interstate and State Roads so I assume the low clearance problem will be greatly diminished? Specs on the coach specify 11í10Ē (w/AC so letís go with 12í) exterior height, and from what Iíve Googled, minimum height of a bridge on the Interstate is 16í. Is this a safe assumption or is there a nasty surprise waiting for me?
Iím wondering what kind of mapping tools do you all use? I use GAIA GPS when running trails in my Jeep so Iím guessing there must be a map tool available to help RVíers create a safe (low bridge free) route when planning trips into previously untraveled areas?
There are many good options for mapping functions out there, but I have had good success with AllStays Camp&RV app. You can map a route, and preset filters to avoid low clearances. There are many good reviews of this app on YouTube. The app is a bit pricey ($9-10, I think), but we downloaded a bunch of different apps, and it quickly became our go to app on our trip out west last summer.
