Golden Gate Bridge in SF

I used to live in SF and cannot recall seeing any RVs on the golden gate bridge at any time. I am thinking that coming from the south on HiWay 1 there is a underpass and am not sure what the height is also that is the rainbow tunnel height and lastly how would i get to Clear Lake (I don't want to go up the mountain by Calistoga)

Vehicle Restrictions

The Golden Gate Bridge roadway consists of a total of six roadway lanes. The number of roadway lanes dedicated to a given direction of traffic flow can be modified several times throughout the day to accommodate traffic patterns.
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING UPCOMING VEHICLE RESTRICTION: Beginning in approximately June 2010, the weight of vehicles and loads crossing the Golden Gate Bridge will be restricted to legal limits; there will be no extra weight legal limit vehicles permitted. This restriction is being imposed as a result of the ongoing seismic retrofit work and is anticipated to remain in effect for approximately one year.
Trucks, Trailers, Buses, Recreational vehicles are allowed on the Golden Gate Bridge as long as:
  1. They are driven across the Bridge using only the curb lane of the roadway (right hand roadway lane). The curb lanes of the roadway are 11 feet wide; the other roadway lanes are 10 feet wide.
  2. When traveling south through the toll plaza, use only the two right hand toll lanes; these toll lanes are wider (11 feet, 10 inches) than the other toll lanes (9 feet, 2 inches) in the toll plaza.
  3. When traveling south through the toll plaza, the vehicle height does not exceed 14 feet, 6 inches.

I'm thinking the dearth of RVs on the bridge is due to the fact that (northbound) you'd have to navigate thru the City to get there, and who wants to do that w/an RV, or (southbound) you'd wind up in the City w/an RV, and who wants to do that?

To work around the City, take 37 (from Novato or Petaluma?) to 80ish to 880ish to 101, or from Novato head for the San Raphael-Richmond bridge to 80 south on east side of Bay. Actual route for me depends on traffic hours; the bridge is crazy @ rush hour, tho neither is a picnic @ rush hour. (Unless you pull over and have a picnic till rush is over!!)

Coming up Hwy 1, I don't think the trip through The City will be too bad if you do it in off hours. To get to Clear Lake (about as aptly named at Greenland!) I'd suggest just staying on Hwy 101 all the way to Williams and then taking Hwy 20 east to the Lake. It adds a few miles but it's pretty much a straight shot.

Be aware that Clear Lake has been having a terrible year for alge growth in the lake and I don't think water sports will be very enjoyable.

Hwy 101 to Ukiah

Ricko, I think you mean 101 to Ukiah and then east on 20. Williams is at hwy 20 and I-5. I drove an 11' wide 80' long crane over that route and it wasn't bad at all.

Ricko we used to live in Clear lake which is the reason we ar going back to see friends I can remember taking a boat out there and leaving a muddy wake and since the wine growing had taken over lake county it had gotten even worse every year used to be a nice place to fish and boat but hasn't been for several years according to our friends
