There is a 11'8 sign on the right just above the stop sign.

I took my 12'9" rig under a 13' 6" bridge. My butt had a firm grasp on the driver's seat. WOW, that looked close.....

I can image someone with a Outlaw at 13' 3' would feel going under a 13' 6" bridge.

IRV2 could use a sweating bullits icon

The only way to be sure is to measure it yourself while parked on a level spot. I used a piece of wood that wouldn't flex, leveled it with a carpenter's level at the highest point then duct taped it in place. You could use another person instead. I then took a wide, rigid tape measure and checked the height to that leveled piece of wood. In my case, found that our 5er instead of being the OEM spec of 12'9" was 13'3" .

I did the same thing, except I used a Bosch laser measuring tool. My coach was listed as 11'8", but it is closer to 12'6" with satellite dome.
