Anyone know the total height of my 1993 fleetwood 29' Southwind?

    Been looking all over and can't seem to get a firm answer on my total height as equipped with factory air (no additional antennas or satellite) - user manual doesn't say, and internet searching is giving me numbers of 11'4" and 12' 7". Am not really flexible enough to climb up and drop a tape measure, but if I stay unsure, will have to end up doing that I suppose. This is our 1st RV purchase (didn't want to spend too much on new if we weren't sure how much we'd use it) and am working through learning about it before our 1st short trip with it. Any suggestions appreciated!

    Have you figured it out? I could be wrong but I believe it's 11'4"

    It is !IMPERATIVE! that every Rv owner know EXACTLY how tall their Rv is.
    I think it's 11'7" or the book says 12'2" does not get it .
    WHY ??

    CHK IT

    Go to home depot. Buy a 1" X 1 1/2" X 10ft wood strip. lay stick on home depot
    floor & make sure all sides are straight against floor.

    Climb up a ladder & lay the center of the stick across top of the highest point,
    probably the ac. measure the distance from stick to ground. mark this inside
    your windshield where driver can see it.

    Your rig will probably differ from published rig height depending on your load,
    tire inflation, spring sag (especially on a 1993), tank contents, ect.

    So someday, when you are cruising down a picturesque country road & diggin' the cows & come to a low RR crossing you can look at the height you put inside your windshield & can feel confident to proceed or go back.

    +1 Measure your rig. Anything else is speculation and may cost you a bundle later. -Bill
