Minor clearance issue

Saw this a while back on a road trip, seems the driver forgot about height, must have been going kinda fast too as the A/C unit was about 30 ft behind the motorhome on the ground and coach was stuck like a wedge and buldged out like an old AMC Pacer!!

This is why I have a label on the dash that says 11 FT 11 IN. And don't go under anything less than about 12 FT 3 IN.

Over on the Dark Side I saw a 5ver that got detoured off the main Highway. He opened it up like a tuna can going under a low bridge. The entire bedroom was roofless from the pictures.

Once saw a box truck with ladders go under a low underpass. It knocked the ladder off and it went thru the windshield of the car behind it.Not sure how much damage cause I didn't want to look.

around here we don't get a year without some truck getting stuck or peeling the top off of the trailer. I have posted on my dash the min clearance level. I have had to turn around a few times but I have never sheared off the top.
