    As far as we know, the "wide body" designation is the norm instead of exception for Class C & A. The only restrictions/illegal we're aware of would be in posted parks that cannot accomodate the size (usually area too primitive, or length prohibits or no RVs allowed).
    We travel PA frequently by car and have never seen a sign prohibiting "wide body"....check your camping guides or AAA travel guide. :)
    Several years ago the "wide body" WAS restricted, but no longer seems to even be mentioned.

    Hi BobbieLS52, welcome to the forum, wide body rv are legal on all federal hiways, this includes all interstate hiways and all hiways with the US designation such as US 59 or US route 60, and many states now have a 102" legal with on their routes. Where you may get into trouble is in the NE on the narrow township/county roads, I know that AZ's legal width on the state roads is 96" but they very seldom ticket a rv unless your in violation of something else. Most states would rather have your tourist dollars. Have fun traveling. :) :laugh: :cool: ;) :approve:
