    We have just signed up for this to use on the Autoroutes in France.

    We have signed up as a Class 2 as we are less than 3m high.

    We are less than 3m but we have a sat dome half way down the roof which puts that part of the van over 3 metres.

    Do you think It will still work or stop me going through? Tag only works for class 1 and 2

    If so I have just wasted some money:Doh:

    there is a sensor that reads the height

    There is a sensor that reads the height of the vehicle and if it reads the roof height higher than a class II then you will not get the barrier to open.. plus you need to make sure there is not a height limit on the lane you approach.

    We have to pay class III or iV if the trailer is attached.

    oh.... that is OK then

    OK Treacle that is OK then.. it is the co-pilots responsibility.. fully agree... us drivers have to follow the tarmac.. not read the signs as well..

    I always blame SWMBO...:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I use the 'ALIS' tag on the french peages and I transfer it between three vehicles, Motorcycle, Car and Motorhome and have never been charged anything other than the correct rate. The Motorhome is just over 3 metres high with the satellite dish and never been charged more than the class 2 rate.
    I believe there are sensors in the road which reads the weight of vehicle as well as height barriers so as long as you use the normal booths you should be ok. If you do get charged class 3 you can always contact Liber-t.

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread but need some advice.

    We now have this widget but not sure where to put it.

    The instructions say place it by the rear view mirror but we don't have one.

    Any suggestions ( polite) where I should put it on an A class and how I should secure it?

    Cheers

    Is this legal logic ? It sure ain't engineering logic. I'd say the height is height of the lowest barrier the vehicle would pass under, nothing else makes sense.

    Dont forget we are talking French:BigGrin:

    its a question of what the barrier sensors detect.

    I will be a bit nervous gouing through the first one.

    Please dont say that.

    The horrendous feeling I had when we hit the underpass in Rouen still lives with me. I recall parking up to survey the damage. We were lucky it was only one smashed roof light and some little scratches. But if we had our dome at the time ..oh dear:BigGrin:
