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.

Watch more videos of trucks crashing into this overpass.
