    If its the one in your avatar, it looks like you have some kind of air con or similar box on top, so only you will know

    Needs a tape measure and a ladder I reckon (y)

    So if you call it three mtrs, (9'9"), and then reckon it ten feet overall, your cooking. (y)

    I would add a bit then round it up to be 'safe', but I would also try a tape measure o_O

    We have a dymo label in ours with the height on, we have rounded up to 3.33m to allow for our sat dome but also translated to 11' as virtually all bridges are still quoted in feet not metres, we have already had to do a multi point turn twice at low bridges that Tom Tom didn't pick up

    You also need to consider if the road is level or on a slant, or if the bridge has arches let alone anything that you have mounted on the top of the van. I give a foot clearance, you never know if the height restriction signs are accurate or not. :happy:

    Our cheepo Chinese special seems to give us them all, and plays hell if the route chosen contains a bridge lower then the entered figure.

    Had ours for three years now, it's been brill. Used it all over the country. Plays Holy Hell if you try to use a road even with a low bridge weight limit thats under your truck. (y)
