Beware of trusting the Good Sam online trip planning tool. I'm getting ready to travel again and plotted a route. I specifically input 14 ft as my height so it would not route me through a 13'6" rock tunnel that I used on my way in. Guess what? It routed me that way anyway.

Probably shortest route. Going around may have added 20 or more miles. My big rig gps does the same thing.

Use RV Trip Wizard. Much better for routing based upon height and weight.
