I see on the Redwood site that the height of a 36RE with aircontioner is 13'2". Does anyone know if that is alos accurate for a 2012 36RE model?



Thanks.

My RL should be the same as the RE when it come to height. Mine is 13'4 at the top of my vent covers.

I think that could vary, with the inflation and size of your tires (E vs G). Also be careful of posted bridge heights. They could have repaved the road, lowering the actual height. Personally, I avoid going under anything lower than 14 feet.

Before I hit the road this year, I'm going to hook the RL up, raise the jacksand lay a 2x4across the front AC extending past the side -then measure from the ground to the bottom of the 2x4. So much of looking at Redwood's specs, other model's measurements, etc... but I think there is no substitute for knowing yourunit's exact height when you approachthat "low clearance" sign at 45+ mph.

Good idea. I think I will pull out of the garage until the highest point is under the door, then measure up to the header and subtract it from the full height of the door.

AMEN! I won't take mine under any height less than 14'3". Height of tires on hot pavement adds maybe an inch, repaying adds 2 inches. 5'er sitting up instead of level, may add another 2 to 3 inches, with the added A/C UNIT with unit level, 13'6", nope 14' is scary, uneven road under bridge causing a bounce = DOOM or BOOM. ANYTHING UNDER 14'6" I worry, and go SLOW AND TO THE INSIDE Lane.Edited by: RifRaff

All good ideas and I'm going to do the same.

I believe that on the Interstate Highways that your trailer is not to be over 13'6". I believe that 13'6" is a Federal Law throughout the states. That height number is for your safety and mainly the safety of the bridge that you are going under.

I am not speaking for individual State roads or local roads with bridges over them. These roads are where I would heed Riffraff's warning.

I do not go on any road less than 13 ft 6 inches. I measured my coach and with 14 ply tires, I am at 13 ft 4 inches. I have placed that data into my rand mcnally gps and have had no problems. recommend 13 ft 6 inches be minimum and you will not have to worry on roads. When using Good Sam trip planner I use that as a restriction and it is a good basis for trip planning.

Same here and the Rand Mcnally RV GPS ask the height of your rig not the bridge height, I put in 13.6 and they figure from that number.
