RV GPS

I'd like to here some opinions on these. We recently upgraded from a travel trailer to a 5th wheel. I never ran into clearance issues with the trailers but we've had some close calls with the 13'5" height of the 5th wheel.

I know the GPS units with height and weight features aren't fool proof, in fact I've read articles that blame these devices for most of the truck collisions with bridges because many drivers trust them exclusively. I've been using AllStays Pro to help me with low bridge clearances but it's difficult to layout an entire trip that way.

I think GPs are the cause of a lot of problems. I followed one yrs ago when we had a 5th wheel and it led me on a dead end rd and I had to back the 5th wheel back for what seemed like a mile before I could turn around. And it was night LOL. Gps along with a trucker map may help. We do like to folly back roads when possible and it helps to stop and ask a local if in doubt. Fire depts are generally knowledgeable about roads in their area. I know this don't help if planning a long trip. Good luck
