I know what you mean about being out and about in the backwoods.
It can be daunting finding the stuff you need out on the road, that you take for granted
in your own neck of the woods, sometimes. On our latest trip it was a quickie oil change place that
could handle the weight/length/height of our van. Dealers were all closed on the weekends in the
summer months in the Maritimes and the eastern US it seemed. We weren't desperate, but I like
to keep on top of the maintenance, and it was just past due. Got it done today at our local GM
dealer, who has a 4 post hoist good for 12,000 lbs. and 20 feet length and high ceilings above it.
Speaking of size, something Sprinter related just came to mind. Height.
Can it fit under the roof of a McDonald's drive-thru, for example?
Ours does (mostly) although one or two we didn't try.
Sprinters look a bit taller naturally, and I'm guessing they might not fit.
Our van is 100" (8' 4") and since most are 9', we're usually fine.
However,we almost took off the top of our '02 RT190PC at the toll booths at the St. John New Brunswick river bridge.
There weren't any signs (that I or my wife recall) about taller or oversize vehicles using specific lanes.
We saw a guy in uniform running towards us waving and after a brief moment of "what the heck?" realized
we wouldn't fit through most of their lanes except one. FYI.
Funny/scary experience. Someone else on here recently asked about where to find POI low bridge info for GPS
units and he listed a site where you can get the info for a nominal fee. He's had some near misses recently he said
in his original posting.
