Any Alfa See Ya owners out there?

Was looking at a 2008 Alfa See Ya 40 ft. Overall height is 13 ft 1 in which seems tall to me. If I ad a sat dish I could be close to 14 ft. For you seasoned rvrs is this a prob? Has anyone had to add an additional roof air conditioner? Thanks for any info.

Any 5W is tall at the front, so things like air conditioners and satellite domes are typically placed further back, where the roofline is lower.

Federal highway specs call for a minimum of 13'6" on underpasses, but a very few exceptions have been granted for interstates and quite a few exceptions for the National Highway system (routes labeled with a US number). You would have to be very cautious of route selection even at 13'1".

Bill_B,
Your air conditioners are underneath, not on the roof, I am assuming that you are talking about a class A and not a 5er. You have to stay at or under 13'6", that is the legal limit without a permit. So you will have to be careful if you add anything to the roof.

Bill B,

Had one and yes they are high but there were about 4,000 or 5,000 built and they are all within legal height limits. You are smart to plan on adding an air on top as the basement air is not adequate when in very warm areas. Some add them in the vent over the kitchen. Others will cut a new hole in the front center and add it there. If the latter, be careful. I knew someone who cut the wiring harness when they cut the hole. Big problem!

There is a Yahoo Group (actually 2 of them) with owners talking about ALFA.

Good luck!
