Seneca's Height

New to an rv of this size and wondering if anyone has had any issues with the 15.7' height of the Seneca? Been reading where the bridges in some states are just 14.5' to 15' tall. My Seneca has a total height of 15.7'. Here is something I found through Good Sams. Got me wondering if any of you who have traveled a lot across the US and Canada, have you had any height problems? Heck acording to this I am already 2' over the height limit in my own state!!! Could not find a date anywhere so I'm hoping this is old.

Even though the Seneca is legal at just over 13ft tall, you still need to pay close attention - especially when on back roads. I've encountered railroad trestles and bridges that are lower. Watch out for those yellow height signs.

No the article I read said most states have a 13.6 hight limit. The 2012 and up Seneca's are 15.7 feet tall. But still haven't heard of anyone having issues and that article I think might be old.

Ummm..no. The Seneca on the M2 chassis is 157in tall at the top of the AC units. 157 inches is 13.08ft. I have a 2015 model and it isn't 15 ft tall...

ROFL ! ! ! I hope you guys got a good hardy laugh at my expense. Told you I was new to something this big. My husband told me I should read the owners manual also. So the other day when I posted this that is exactly what I had been doing. After more than one of you stated yours were just 13.0' I went back to re-read where I thought it said it was 15.7'. It appears there is a speck on the page between the 15 and 7 that should not be there. I even looked at it with a magnifying glass to make sure it wasn't a desmil. Sure enough I scratched it right off and had a good laugh myself. Feeling a bit embarshed right now.

I thought Jayco was starting to make double-decker RVs

The Allstays app on my iPhone has a low clearance filter option.
