Tony,

Most of the bridges are marked on the conservative side.

If you use your computer vs your phone to load pictures you will have better luck getting the orientation right.

I know a good leather repairman, just in case you need the seat in your truck repaired.

I was, maybe 10 years old. My dad was driving and I was the passenger. We were in a parking lot and had to make a really tight maneuver between 2 other cars. It was an extremely tight squeeze! I thought for sure my dad was going to scrape the car beside us. He worked his way passed it though. I was looking out my window and I was telling him, "Dad you are so close, I think you might have only 1 inch!" To which my dad replied, "That's OK. 1 inch is as good as a mile! I didn't hit it, did I?"

And you know .... he was right!

We bought the Montana in Fort Worth and headed to the campground we were staying at in Grapevine. We went under this bridge before I knew to be worried. Joined this forum group shortly thereafter and learned about height clearances.

Used to be an underpass marked 13’-6” in Dalhart, TX. And even after going under it many times on our yearly trips to Colorado I still puckered a little each time wondering if they had repaved since the last time. All the crash marks on it didn’t help with the concerns. It was under a railroad track so they finally lowered the highway more than a foot to give 15’-1” clearance.

Good to know! I did notice a few of the cross members had been hit so I told my with that others have made clearance for us!
