Just out of curosity, how many of you, any type rig, know exactly how high your rig is??? Or have ever actually measured it?? I keep hearing and seeing stuff about people knocking stuff off the top or tearing something up. When we first got ours, I had the dealer measure it while in his shop on a level surface. Then posted that on a sticker that is stuck on my speedometer. Have had to back out a few times, and have brushed a few limbs, but nothing that I didn't expect.

I physically measured the rig. Laid a 2x4 with level on it from the highest point(AC), measured to ground. I added 4 inches for safety.
Make sure you do it when there is no fresh water and the grey and black are empty.
I had a phynlic label made that I attached to the dash.

I measured ours sitting empty right after buying it, then put that on the backside of the drivers visor

Did the same as Bud. Measured from highest point (satellite dome in my case) with 6' level and tape measure. Measured with empty tanks, 1/4 fuel and about 1500 lbs worth of stuff not yet loaded. Did it on level concrete driveway.

Made it under a 13'9" underpass, so I know it's less than that.

Look at the brochure...that should give you a pretty good idea.

Problem is branches at campgrounds rarely have posted heights.
