I am lookin at this 5th wheel but have a concern. Brochure height is 13' 5". When I contacted Northwood about the height when ordering it with the from AC, they said it would add "several inches" to the height. I am on the east coast. I have an interstate bridge near me that has a 13' 9" clearance. I don't know if there are any shorter on the interstate. I do not want to sg=have the top of an air conditioner.

Does anyone have this model with the front lo-pro AC? If so, hit anything? How low a clearance bridge have you squeaked under? Thanks!

Maximum legal height is 13'-6" for unpermitted highway travel. The only way to measure correct actual height is to have the trailer setting on the truck and measure the high point.

We just ordered ours and were told the low profile could save us about 4 inches........but, was not as efficient as the regular. I tend to believe them as it would have cost more to get the low profile so what would be the motivation to NOT upsell. Clearance listed with traditional A/C is 13'6".

We did upgrade to the 15 and added a second air conditioner. We are planning to get everything hooked up before we trust ANY height measurement.

Or the low profile AC was temporarily unavailable. Many RV parts are hard to get at this time.
