One of my favorite destinations is on a semirural property with a long tree-lined drive where big bus tires have a distinct advantage over the 16.5" RV type (not to mention the likes of a Dodge Neon). Driving my Winnie (9-1/4 feet at the sides, 10 feet at the A/C) into there is like a slalom course with the pylons suspended in the air below clearance height. Some regular campsites, like Lorna mentioned, are the same way. Unlike typical RVs, a dognose skoolie would give me a hood to stand on while sawing off limbs that are too low - with the property owner's permission, of course. (Climb up and saw, drive forward, repeat steps 1 and 2...)
A 13-footer would beget a "holy ****
!" from more than a few campsite owners. My roof-boost would give seven feet of headroom in the middle. However, if the bus I eventually get already has 6.5 feet, I likely wouldn't do the raise at all.
