The majority of them are 101" wide as far as I know. There may be some that are only 96".
I "dont" think there are any wider than 101"

Actually the max is 102", which is the federal highway width limit without a "wide load" permit. "Safety equipment" such as sideview mirrors are exempt from the limit. Most modern Class A motorhomes are 101-102".

The awnings on motorhomes typically exceed the 102" limit, but I've never heard of a issue with that, perhaps becasuethe awning is still inside the width of the side mirrors.

Wow --- not much to worry about from a height standpoint! Just kidding --- I know you meant 12' --- not 12"

The range of US models will be 96-102 inches, which isn't a whole ot of difference.

6 inches may not sound like much but when talking about the living area of a small enclosure 6 inches makes a big difference imho. I can tell as soon as I step into an RV or trailer if it's 96 or 102 inches wide. The 102 definately feels roomier!
