Motorhome height

We are getting our Ventana hopefully in the next week. Is the 12'10" height the driving height or the parking height ?

It's the height with the airbags inflated. Doesn't matter parked or driving.

Canít say for sure. I would think driving height. When you dump air, it should drop 3-5 inches.

Ours is a DSDP and nominal height is 13 and that is drive height.

To be sure, measure.

When a manufacturer states a height, you can be sure it is the driving height. To do otherwise would create some serious liability issues.

Before leaving Florida last month I measured mine. The highest point when on air suspension, loaded for travel, and hooked to my toad was 12' 10.5", and that was the sat dome at the front.
