Our upcoming first trip to the badlands is wrought with concerns. Help!

How do I find which roads I can drive with my 26' RV, tunnels, turns & narrow roads etc? Is there a site, app or such that can help?
We want to go from Sylvan Lake Campground in Custer SP to Spearfish via Mt. Rushmore and I noticed there are tunnels hair pin turns & very narrow roads (google street view) that make me very nervous. Some tunnels are marked with height limits, some are not. How do I gather this info? I don't want to turn around on a one lane road and retrace a half days drive.
Thanks


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Use RV Trip Wizard or an advanced RV GPS like the Garmin RV890. They will route you via a safe path for your RV. Or stick to Interstates.

I just tried RV Trip Wizard and it seems to be the best alternative I've found. Seems cumbersome, but there again I just started to learn it. I will continue to search. Wish google maps had parameters you could enter for the best route.

thanks all

The CG app RV Parky shows low clearances. Stay off of 16A.
