Low clearance overpasses can be a real concern for RVers as the video below illustrates. Despite the warning signs and flashing “Overheight” lights at this Durham, NC, 11-foot-8 clearance railroad trestle, the driver tows his fifth wheel under and cleanly scrapes the air conditioner off the roof. Not sure if he even knew what happened.

So many high-clearance vehicles crash into the trestle the railroad installed a steel crash beam in front of it. Believe it or not – they have already replaced the beam once!
