Reminded me of the time we were staying at Three Fingers CG near Forrest City, Iowa waiting for our appointment the next morning at the Winnie factory. We had to drive through to select our own site and crossed an unmarked bridge which actually took us out of the CG to a dirt road.

We had to circle around to come back... only to see that the bridge was marked on the other side with a "FOOT TRAFFIC ONLY" sign.

I still have nightmares.

Now that foot traffic only sign would be scary.

It sure would be nice if "those who make the rules" could get it together on the signage...

My .motorhome is not a truck, and any signs specifying trucks will be ignored by me, they do not apply.

A bridge load limit, or a low height overpass, would apply, and would get my full attention.

We're currently in New Brunswick, Canada and have been working our way east since crossing the boarder in the Michigan UP a bit over a week ago.

Lots of road construction and signs with pictures of a truck with the universal "NO" indicator of a red circle with the line through it... pointing to one lane or another. I found out pretty quickly that in this particular case they were indicating very narrow lanes so it really is a mixed bag when trying to figure out if RVs will be OK.
