Golden Gate Bridge Fun

On our return trip from Disneyland to Seattle everyone wanted to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. No problem.

I already knew that 101 would take us through some of downtown SF and it really wasn't that big of a deal. If the buses and UPS trucks can drive down there, so can anyone else with an RV. The lanes are plenty wide enough. I'm not sure why so many people complain about it?

But, when you are heading towards the bridge right after that new tunnel they are building, make sure you stay to the right for the wide/RV lanes at the tool booths! I didn't realize that and I couldn't make it over.

In case anyone was wondering....yes...an ACE 30.1 CAN squeeze through one of those tool booths without damaging anything! It was definitely a pucker moment crawling through that booth with maybe 1" to spare on either side of my mirrors. I gently tapped my passenger mirror and rotated it maybe 1" but no damage.

Yeah! Way to go Big!

That which does not scrape us makes us a stronger driver!

I have about 3" clearance (6" total) on each side of my mirrors at the gate poles when backing up my driveway alongside the S&B.

So I can sure hear where you are coming from. Except you were a lot tighter fit than I am for sure!

Well done!
