Clearance height for Winnebago Brave 01

Just purchased a used Winnebago Brave 01. I find all of the weight specs but not the clearance. Anyone have this number?

Probably be best to measure yourself. Variations in weight, tire size, and add-ons can alter the height from the published specification.
Take the measurement with the tanks empty and light on cargo so that the coach is sitting as high as it will go.

And your brochure with height 11 1 to 11 11 depending on which of the 7 models you have

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Tony gives great advice. I wouldn't trust anything about clearance from the manual without measuring it myself due to possible changes since it was built.

Basement air or roof air?
Even so, I never trust the clearance markers on bridges and structures. The clearance height may have been measured at time of construction, since then repaving may add a few inches to the roadbed.
Personally, I never travel under anything marked less than 12 feet.

My Winnebago is marked along the top of the dash panel "Overhead Clearance 12' 3" " but as posted above I have no idea what that referenced .. roof? ...ladder? ...and I have added vent covers. I believe my ladder is still the highest point, but unless I am backing under a low point that is not a great reference point! Measuring is the only sure way to know. I am very, very careful at 13' or less.

There is a state CG here in Washington along the Columbia River that is quite secluded - and it requires going under a railroad bridge that is posted with a 13 foot clearance. My CB antenna scraped, but everything else is just fine. First time - I had to stop, look up. Check it out. No problem, so I drove slow. I made it - but like you, I ducked too!

Is there a speed/height ratio?
Driving SLOWER does not DECREASE the height of your coach LOL
Neither does ducking, (but we all do both). :-)
