Traveling from Fayetteville, Ar to Carthage, Mo. My trip wizard says there is a tunnel. Has anyone towed their fifthwheel this way? What is the height restriction? Thanks

The tunnel is south of Fayetteville and not even a concern for RVs. The two passages are each 38 feet wide with a center height of over 25 ft, and lowest shoulder height about 20 feet high.

Northbound traffic does have a bit of a climb, and southbound a descent. Total distance is a bit short of 1,600 ft.

Having visited Carthage MO, I have to say it was kind of eery. There were lots and lots of houses--but hardly any people around.

The Bobby Hopper tunnel is no issue for an RV. I have pulled my 13'6" Montana through it probably 50 times.

Thank you for all the responses. We are traveling from South Ar to Sturgis ths summer to visit Mt. Rushmore and surrounding area. Carthage is a one night stop, not a destination. I had no tunnels programmed in my Trip Wizard and thats why the tunnel warning popped up. Campground Mi Casa in Carthage got pretty good reviews so thats our first stop! Again, thanks for your help! It puts my mind at ease!
