Some won't let you through if you have propane on board. Some require you to turn the tank off. You're best bet is to google the name of a tunnel you plan to use to get the particulars.

On the few occasions that we have come to a tunnel with restrictions that applied to our class A coach... we simply used the posted "alternate route" to bypass the tunnel.

No LP restrictions on the I-77 Big Walker and East River tunnels in Virginia. Both of these tunnels are ~1 mile in length. Also, no restrictions on any Pittsburgh tunnels or PA Turnpike tunnels.

I-95 Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore is restricted - no propane allowed. The Hampton Roads area tunnels require the RV to stop for inspection and show the LP tank valve is off. Other tunnels (PA Turnpike) have no restrictions for RV sized LP tanks.


Somebody already said that you should check ahead to see what tunnels you may go through and find out what restrictions there may be.

OP: What tunnels do you have in mind? You do need to know how high they are!

Here in SoCal we have tunnels into Mexico. I think an RV could fit through some of them. (-:

Could be, I'm pretty sure most of them have trolley service...
