"It's such a painful process to collect the data," said Edward Friedman of TeleType GPS, which released its WorldNav truck system three months ago. "[b]You actually have to...drive around and look at the heights of the bridges and go to all the counties."

Matt Bremner, business manager at Western Motorcoach, which sells luxury RVs in Lynnwood, said most GPS models he's seen are geared for cars. Those driving larger vehicles just need to apply common sense and [b]pay attention to where they're going.

...my sister did that once with a camper on the back of her husband's truck. She went to the mall and didn't pay attention to how tall the clearance was to go under to the parking......hee, hee...it wasn't a fun phone call she had to make to Steve! It was wedged in there pretty good, took some time to get it out. She wasn't given the keys to the truck for a while after that one! :loltu

Come to think of it, I also knew a guy once that forgot to completely drop his backhoe on the trailer and went under a freeway overpass.... :omy wasn't good. No one was hurt (except the overpass and his backhoe). Cost something like $250,000.00 to fix and that was 20 yrs ago.
