Don’t Let This Happen To You – RVer Gets Stuck On Bridge

It’s not a pretty sight, seeing an RV jammed under (or into) a low-ceilinged space.

In Steubenville, Ohio one RVer tried to make it across an old two-lane bridge, with only a 10′ overhead clearance.

But they sometimes cause a huge problem for travelers of the modern age.

The couple from Ontario, Canada got their Sunseeker trailer wedged into the notification restriction just before the bridge. Good thing they got stopped early.

It would have been a lot harder to help them out had they made it farther onto the bridge.

Fortunately, reports indicate no damage to the bridge, and no citation to the RVers! But the bridge sure took its toll on the way out.
