Most are 102" wide which is right at the legal limit. Anything above this requires a wide load permit (at least in most states).

I'm sure someone will point out that the mirrors are hanging out further, apparently they don't count.

The side mount would work well on the older 96" wide class A's.

This is something to think about. I doubt that many police would know or care that you are over width, but it only takes one to ruin the day. Are they really going to care that you are over by 6" or so?

I certainly agree. It wasn't an option I considered, but what about the awnings.

I suspect the reason mirrors and awnings are not included is that they are frangable.

I've had a portabote for several years, carrying it on top of my CRV. I did check under our RV, and it looks like there would be room to hang it if necessary. I think you should consider your box idea. As a matter of fact, the portabote is very tough, so just hanging it with brackets may be fine also.

Boat box has been built and is at powder coater. Should be done and mounted in week or two. I gotta try it.

psyflyjohn, I think you're correct, is tough, could be hung from brackets, but will be easier to load into my box from the side than diagnally into brackets.
