How tall is your Jayfeather with A/C?

We have a train bridge near my house that I see trucks constantly getting stuck under. The clearance is 10'3. Will my Jayfeather fit with the A/C? I am scared to attempt it.

Jayco's website says my 2016 Jay Feather 23RLSW is 128" high (10' 8"). My own measurements - and at my parking pad it's hard to get any kind of an accurate measurement - say it's about 9' at the sides; allow a few more inches for the curved roof line, and about a foot for the A/C unit, and next thing you know it's 10' 8". So I have no reason to doubt Jayco's number on that.

If it's a recent model you should be able to find the 'book' value for the height at Jayco's website.

BTW, for me this is one of those things I want to make sure I know when I start towing!!! I think I'm going to do what you see on some trucks, and label my trailer's height on the front, in reverse, so I can read it in the mirror when I have a senior moment and forget.

In the meantime, I don't think I'd try that underpass if I were you.

Jayco's product archive at their website says your trailer is 120" high. So to misquote Clint Eastwood, "Do you feel lucky?"

3" of clearance feels awfully slim to me, but it's your A/C unit, not mine. Just sayin'...

Yeah that is a little too risky for me. Yikes! Especially if the road is uneven which it is. Think I will go the long way. Thanks for that info!
