    Uh-oh.....

    ...rain falling softly and cool crisp Canadian air washes over the RV park -- my afternoon nap is interrupted by a terrible realization. I do not know the height of my 337 with the front Atwood AC attached. I know the rig is 12'4" without but what is it with the AC? It has to be way over 13', right!? Anybody know?

    Dean...I measured 13' 0" on our 337 to the top of a Fanastic Fan vent cover that I have on the bedroom vent. A A/C unit may be a 1" or two taller than the vent cover.

    The reason I was asking is the brochure says the AC is 13.6 inches in height and if the height of the coach is 148" (12' 4"), and if I recheck my figures on my pocket abacus that puts me at almost 13.5 '. That doesn't sound right. I must just be barley clearing bridges.

    Those must be some pretty short bridges you are travelling under .

    The average height of a 18 wheeler is around 13.6" which puts you right in the ballpark for trucks. Assuming you are on major trucking roadways you should be more than safe.

    I suspect your 13.5' estimate is likely correct and hope that most bridges are truck friendly.

    Of course RVing is about getting to unique and interesting places so it's great to be aware of your overall height in case you do come across a very short bridge.

    Hope you keep plenty of space above your head and that your travels are safe.

    One of the first things I did when I got my 323BHS home was to measure it's height and length as well as the length when it was hooked to my TV. For the height, I had it disconnected and leveled in my driveway. My unit also has the forward AC. The measurement I got from the top of the forward AC was 13' 1".
