We are 75' long. Overlength for every state. As a general rule, it seems that the LEO's overlook the length of an RV unless some other blatant violation gets their attention. I don't know why, but I have been passed by many State Patrols and been observed by units sitting along the road, but never questioned or stopped. The only time I went into CA, I had a $16 oversize permit traveling with several other MH's that did not have permits. We were observed by several CHP officers and no one was stopped. I see more and more overlength RV's on the road as compared to 6 or 7 years ago. I know that there is always a first time, but I will just deal with it when and if the time comes. I wouldn't give a second thought to the OP's concern over a foot or two. Just hit the road and enjoy.

Yep, not to change the subject, but since you brought it up, I had 3 relatives that worked in law enforcement, and they all told me that they didn't pull anyone over for speeding unless they were moving 11 miles over the legal speed limit, meaning 81 in a 70 posted area, because the judges didn't like tying up court time over frivolous road violations. I've traveled 9 to 10 miles per hour over the posted limit ever since then(in my car, not my RV) and have yet to be pulled over.
