Thanks for the pics Chuck, guess we would also be length limited to about 32-33' as the building is 36' long, unless we fell in love with a longer one, then we would have to look at something like you did... (looks nice !)

2012 Monaco Knight 36' advertized at 12' 7", actual is 12' 10". My 13' door opening is 12' 11". I dump the air bags when I move into the garage.
When I built the house (way before I had an RV) I listened to the builder who said 13' would be enough for anything, which was a big mistake, I should have used a 14' door.

12'8" to top of sat dish. I have no way to drop the air as they build up as I run the engine backing in the door.

I have not seen a coach topping 13'. I am sure there are one or two out there. Everything I had and my buddy's own have been 12' to 12' 11".

Our 03 is 11'10" if we unscrew the scanner antenia, our door opening is a hair under 12', talk about close!!! We wanted to trade up last year, dealer told that in 06 they were all made taller. Put a stop to our looking to upgrade. Kept what we have and did some remodeling instead. Saved ourselves a ton of $$$$.

Took out the carpet, installed Allure flooring, removed the overhead TV, removed the sleeper sofa and put in a leather reclining loveseat, took out the large double sink, had a new counter top made and a smaller sink installed to give more counterspace. Love, love love the improvements!!!

coach dimension

Our '04 Inspire with 11R22.5 tires (soon to be changed for a different size) is 12' 10" high.

Some of the bridges and fuel island structures look real close.

My Outlaw is a tad taller at 13'8" due to the sat dish, extra large vent covers, and an external WI-FI antenna mounted on the roof at the midline. Heck, I stuck a big orange "dummy" sticker on my dash as a reminder and made sure my GPS has a height warning for routing. Yea, it's a dash tall.

Probably not really a huge issue but you should try to shave off a couple of inches if you can as you are over the maximum height allowed in many states (including Florida) and provinces. It's probably very unlikely to happen but if a police or DMV official wanted to be an a**, they could pull you off the road and impound you and force you to fix it before they let you on the road again.

Technically to drive it in Florida (and I suspect it's the same for many other states), you need to get an oversize permit for each trip (which you may not be able to get as it might only be available to commercial operators).

You are correct. 13'6" is DOT law. (without a permit as stated, and I also doubt you could get one for an rv) If you ever hit anything, (overpass, wires, etc, even if they were lower, say 13' ) that "could" lead to big trouble.

11'-10" high to the top of the penguin lo profile a/c's (with air fully dumped) 5" higher to the top of the spring loaded cb antenna.

I hold the air dump button (after dumping) and back her in on the frame thru an 11'-11.625" hi by 11'-11" wide over head door opening with 14' truss height inside.

Ride height raises appx 8-9" additional.
Yes I know it's close but have been doing it for 13yrs without incident.

The MH height is why we still have what we have.

Once in the 40 x 64 concrete floor pole barn it can be raised on the bags or leveled etc and can raise the TV antenna as well.
