I checked all 50 states (and D.C.) and found that Florida has the lowest maximum height requirement with 13' 5". What roads have you found that are 12' ?
Mostly non-posted secondary roads and quite a few public &/or off-the-beaten-path campgrounds. It's more a case of low hanging tree limbs that we have found with an occasional power/telephone line tossed in just to keep things interesting. You may want to get a good truckers atlas and stay on the main roads & interstates.
