Hi all. First time here. Looking to purchase a used 30' 454 Holiday Rambler Admiral. We are a little leary on the 13' height of this unit. Will we have problems traveling because of the height? ( And thanks for a great RV site!)

My first reaction is that 13' sounds pretty high for a 30' rig but we're just about that tall and don't really have any issues with it. You might find some state/federal CGs have trees which could cause you trouble but we always just have to be aware of our height and be careful.
Thanks for the reply. Seems to me I see quite a few 11'7" underpasses here where we live and wondered if that may be "par for the course" in our travels.
Also, I have yet to find much information on the Holiday Rambler Admiral unit we are interested in . Any input on this motorhome?
Since your first post says "454 Holiday Rambler" I will assume that it is powered by a 454 Chevy engine. If this is correct it means it is an older coach from the 80's or 90's and a 13' height would be very unusual for an older gas coach.
What year is it?
1995 Coachmen Santara 360MB 36' w/slide.
Ford F53/460 chassis, 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee "toad"

our 5er is 13'4'' and we haven't had any problems yet but some back roads get a little concerning. Tractor trailers are usually 13'6'' so if they fit I know I'll fit.
It is a 2000 Holiday Rambler Admiral with a 7.4 V8 gas engine. It weighs 14,534 pds and is 30' long and 13' high on a chevy workhorse chassis. We are very close to purchasing this unit so I am hoping for good luck!
