This may have been stated already and I missed it, but if your coach has air bags, be sure to measure the height with the air bags in "Travel" position!

Good point. I'm sure that if I ever measured it, it would never even have occured to me to check that!

My 2012 Winnebogo Journey 40 U is 13'1". But if you plan on visiting Canada you should know what it measure in Metrics. We needed 4.1 clearance and I did not want to attempt to determine the conversion on the fly.

According to Worldwide Wholesale Distribution of Valves, Fittings, Tubing & Flanges: World Wide Metric 4.1 meters is a tad over 13.451 feet

I live here and still have no idea why we switched.

2005 Sea Breeze 1311 - we are 11' 8" to the top of the A/C units and 13' 4" to the top of our radio antenna. The radio antenna is mounted on a spring base ... good thing because we do occasionally hit it on tree limbs.

We have several low Clarence areas in our area and really pay attention to the height.

We had a plate made with the height and it is right by the driver's control panel for reference.

The manual says 12'6" I recall reading a law about that somewhere and I thought it said the same,, but alas I'm unable to re-locate it so it may not have actually existed, I might have a mixed memory from something else.
