When I first got my MH I had a sense that I was occupying the entire lane with nothing to spare. I never thought I would fit through a toll booth. However, after driving for a while It became easy. I think what helped me was watching Semi's and other MH go through these toll booths. I noticed that there really is more room than you think there is. The same thing applied when looking at how much, or little of the lane they used going down the road. I am very relaxed driving now.
