How tall is it?

We are about to hit the road heading to Frisco Texas in our new 37LS. I just realized that I really dont know how tall our Outlaw is. The specs say 12"11", but what I don't know is if that includes the AC units and TV antenna or is just the RV.....Can anyone answer this?

Likely you are OK, but don't take a chance. Set the coach up to travel (bags aired up etc) then take a level and a sraight 2x4 and lay the board level across the highest point on the roof. Likely an A/C unit or a satellite dome. From the level board, have someone measure from the bottom of the board to the ground. Might be a good idea to write this on something in the driver's area so you don't forget it.
I recall a trip to Maine off the main roads when we encountered a steel bridge with low overhead cross beams. moved very slowly until we passed the satellite dish on the roof. We had basement air on the coach at that time.

Thumbs up

Usually that will include the AC units and anything that is standard on your MH.

Another thing to think about is knowing what that measurement is in meters. Some bridges and overpasses will say in Meters. Metric system.

TPSPUCK,

If you look at the angled roof-line from a distance, you will see that the AirCon and everything else on the forward roof is lower than the rear roof...and the highest point there are the roof vents over the garage and loft.

Thor/Damon has always said the height of the Outlaw is 12'11" and I checked that with a 2x4 across the highest point and tape measure.

On level ground, my Outlaw is just under 13' and I travel very light, using the garage as a kennel, vs. moto's or quad's in the garage that would lower the rearend.

If you have any doubt (like I did) you should measure it, but for day to day driving, I use 13" for my height.

BTW, I just stumbled on to this post...I usually ask questions of the brain trust on the http://www.irv2.com/forums/f120/i-lo...aw-102560.html thread

Best of luck

Was it a flat ceiling bridge or arched?

Our biggest fear is gas stations...they aren't always marked.
