I thought everything in Texas was big
« on: January 14, 2011, 05:55:39 PM »

Apparently not RV's though. I should have checked it out before I left. Got a warm welcome to Texas yesterday by a fine young man in uniform. About 4 hours into Texas a State trooper pulled me over and questioned the length of my unit and informed me that the max length here is 65 feet. He was a nice enough fellow though, as he said with ticket book in hand "well if you are only one foot over, I'll let it slide, otherwise I have to buy a permit". I suppose I better check the rest of the states on my route.

 Only 40 feet is motorhome. The rest is the car trailer. I'll be on the cruise ship in a couple of weeks

I couldn't see a single chassis 66 feet long.  That makes sense now.  I was envisioning you crossing an interesection and then making the turn  LOL
 
I drove 52 foot fire trucks and that was scarey enough.  I lived in a hilly lake community then.

No MHs over 40 feet in California either, or is it 36'?  The trailer length is not included.
