Yeah. I've driven a super tall RV before. I plan on buying the RV subscription to Co Pilot to help in planning. At home I'll have to lift the Comcast wires to get in and out my driveway, but otherwise it should be a clear shot. We've got full size semis driving past our house every now and then.

Sorry the pictures aren't working... I used the IMG /IMG markup (with square braces) and it didn't work...

My Eagle was a tad over 13' at the top of the roof airs. I traveled 40+ states and managed to find a number of places that I couldn't go or had to go with extreme caution.

I had to replace the shroud on my forward a/c twice due to tree damage.

Traveling the country in a tall right is definitely doable but does require a little more attention to your routes.

One bad memory........ Denver..... 5:15pm......Friday...... 10'6" overpass.....

My wife walked behind the bus waving traffic away so I could back up to a spot to turn around. Took :45 minutes to get turned around.......

Oh man! What route planning tool did you use? I hear a lot about Garmins for RV, but it also sounds like there's some Android apps I could take advantage of...

Rand McNally Commercial Motor Carriers Atlas.

We didn't have GPS or Android. Some of us have been reluctant to embrace some of the newer technology. I reluctantly traded my Blackberry in for a Hemeroid three years ago.

No shame in that! I'm only 5 years into "smart" phone ownership myself.

I can only assume you are also a software engineer! Lol. Welcome the small Luddite software crowd.

In the ballpark. Unfortunately my skill set is not that mobile. IT Director, first in the gaming industry in Nevada, later in government.

I got to decide what technology we supported

That's why I was able to hang onto my Blackberry so long. I ran our BES server
