Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel

Any one traveled this with a class A ? We are 13' 3" and concerned about travel height. They advertise 13' 6" one big bump and we will loose something off the roof.
Thinking this might save some time around Baltimore and DC.

Hi CHCam42,
You should be okay in the CBBT. The antennas on my roof are over 13' 6" and I have not hit anything yet.

Your height won't be a problem. Remember to turn off propane at the source before you enter. They do ask.

Is there room to pull off prior to the toll booth to shut it off. Their web site has no mention of shutting the LP off.
Thanks
Clark

Traveling from the north, they will ask if not off, go through the toll booth and pull over on the right , turn off and continue. Same from the south, go through the toll booth and pull over. Enjoy the fantastic view.

my coach has a switch in the cabin to shut off lp.

I would go around just because its a long tunnel and its a long tunnel

13'6 is ok, but boy it will give you a start , especially when you see the scars on the tunnel entrance roof

I10 in mobile is about as long as i care to motor through

Travel that way a couple times a year, although we are 12'-9" to the ac, so I cannot comment on you height concerns, the drive and the tunnels are a piece of cake. At the North side of the Bridge Tunnel there is a large parking lot that allows overnight parking, in Exmore VA the Royal Farms gas station has truck pumps if you need Diesel, Sting-Ray's Seafood Restaurant, Cape Charles VA, good food and a parking lot that can handle big rigs and diesel.

Yes, actually it does. Look under "Travel Information."

I always thought that there was a complete propane restriction going through the Chesapeake Bridge-Tunnel, and have been taking the key bridge. Guess I was wrong.

Just read another post & realized it is the Baltimore Tunnel on I95 that I'm thinking about. I guess thats why we get lost sooooo easy.
