Probably wouldn't hurt to have a meters-to-feet conversion chart somewhere, easy to reach, in the truck .

Oops.....that's painful.
My DW directed me under an overhang and it was fine until I hit the metal height sign hanging down...shattered the AC cover. Of course it was my fault cause I was driving. LOL

No, No , No....forget meters! forget charts! It's common sense!! Jeez Louezz! Am I the only one who looks (before going in) at the height of a Gas station ? OMG ! And even as I'm driving to my destination I look for possible refill stations that will accommodate my rig.

When I had my Airstream TT and Dodge diesel and I noticed there was only a small gas station and I really really needed to fuel up, prior to connecting, I would take my truck and fuel up! Worst case, disconnect in a Walmart and go fuel up!.

Sorry guys, Started going off the deep end... Stupidity is real irritating!

I put a sticker on the dash of RV height in feet, meters and even inches, with trailer length and truck/trailer combined length.
A friend was entering the US from Canada and tried to text her husband to see if he would tell her how tall their fifth wheel was and didn't reply in time and she hit the overhead hanging metal pole at the border. Lost solar panels on that deal.

Drove the TV into the city and parked in a parking ramp for the first time. I was nervous, but the height was clearly posted with a metal bar across the entrance. No problem. Drove in and took the ticket from the machine.

Drove slowly and watched carefully going under everything. All good. Very close, but OK.

When we left, we continued to check carefully and found that THE EXIT RAMP CLEARANCE WAS LESS THAN THE ENTRANCE!! There was NO warning or anything... it was just LOWER!

Then, in traffic, we had to stop cars behind us, and maneuver our very long, very tall, TV back to the entrance to exit. At the entrance, we had to make a 90* turn around the ticket booth to the exit side of the entrance by 'wiggle waggling' back and forth to make the corner.

But wait, there's more! Arriving at the entrance from the side, floor of the ramp was a bit higher. So now the end of the metal bar we passed under when driving straight in, was going to hit the roof of the truck! Visualize this; the DW in the bed of the truck, leaning over the cab, pushing the metal bar while I 'wiggle waggled' the truck back and forth to gain enough to make the corner. Wish we had that in YouTube!

We get a chuckle thinking about it now, but at the time, not so much. Now we NEVER park the TV in ramps, regardless of the height.

I would be afraid to take my pop up in an indoor garage/parkade!
