Rand McNally, the map people came out with their own RV GPS.

You program in your rigs height, width and length and it will give you advanced warnings of where not to go.

I use a Garmin Nuvi 465. I programmed our heigth, weight, and length. In 10 months of use it has been great. Kept us out of a traffic circle in MD that would have been a disaster. Warned us about a low bridge that tunrned out to only be low in the break down lane.

It also give us a choice of car, truck alone and truck with trailer. I did not do any comparative research on the Rand McNally one. Garmin offered us $75 off a new model because our Street Pilot was no longer being supported.

Good luck..
