Actually though, the Country Coaches of that era listed the height right on the dash just above the steering column below the dash gauges. Have the owner check and see if it is listed there, but beware if an in-motion satalite has been added after production it may be higher. Good luck.

Great Idea, One fast way to remodel an hanger and the coach at the same time. I'll call the owner and have them check the dash for the height. Thanks for the help

As I said earlier MEASURING is the only way to be sure what the height is.

A height able on the dash, (if there is one), might be WRONG.

Ours is suppose to have a sticker on the dash according to the manual but it's not there. Manual states 13'-0" so I go by that since nothing on the roof has changed since it was built.

I agree with Mel S.

You'll have to physically measure it.
A SAT dome was not stock then.

The air spring system could have been changed since it was new.

It could have different sized tires on it.

This is a common sense approach.

reading through this thread, the curiosity urged me to measure mine. the highest point is the jack antenna, just a hair thick above the a/c shrouds. in travel mode (ride height), mine is 11'10". now i know i am good at a 12' bridge unless a big "V" or "A" road surface .
