Oil capacity w/extra large oil filter

I have a 2004 Pace Arrow with the 8.1 engine. Where I have to park it is not level. With the standard oil filter I know it holds 6.4 Qts. I am using a NAPA #1794 which is larger than the stock oil filter. My problem is I forgot the capacity is of the stock filter, so I don't know how much oil I need to add using this filter. I know I can wait till we leave and stop on a level spot but I would like to be done with it when we start our trip. Thanks in advance.

The "standard" filter AC Delco PF454 filter is 1/2 quart. The filter you are using is a 2 quart filter - my advanced math says add another 1.5 quarts and you good to go!

Just kidding about the advanced math!

My understanding is three filter sizes of 1/2-qt, 1-qt and 1-1/2 qt. the largest taking 8 qts for fill.

That's what i have been doing for 7 years. I use only the largest filter.

So there are no clearance concerns going with the longer filter? Sure would ruin one's day catching it on something.
