8' 4"

Not high at all - just high enough to need a 9' garage door and high enough for New York to charge us extra tolls (don't ask me why they charge more for anything over 7' 6").

Under 10 feet. I measured it when we bought it, forgot long ago the exact height. Lowest bridge in my town is 10'3", I know I can fit under it.

My TT has "torsion bar" suspension, so it is noticeably lower than campers with leaf springs.

Now that you all have me thinking about it, I'm going to go and measure it this afternoon. Especially after looking at my signature picture... that A/C looks 10 feet-ish in the air.

if you plan to travel into Canada, be sure to add the metric height. Not fun trying to do the conversion in your head after seeing a metric sign about 200 feet before a low overpass.

We too got on top of our FW, measured the front highest to the back highest point (to take into consideration should we need to back under something), and posted both on a piece of paper, laminated it, and adhered it to the front upper inside windshield so the driver only has to do a quick glance. Our measurement included the satellite folded down, but our highest point in front was the front AC shroud, and also added a couple of inches.

We are 13'4". Turnpike bridges are 13'6". If needed, I can lower the coach 5-6 inches as we had to do at Disney's Wilderness RV Park in Orlando to get under the canopy. This was at the end of '14 when we picked up our new coach.

The kiosks were built when coaches were a lot lower. There was a plan for a major renovation (what the lady said) to accommodate larger coaches.

Safe travels!
