Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
The tunnels are very tight both in height and also width. Some have gone through them and I think the heights and widths stated in the Custer Park literature are quite close. Scraped mirrors on the sides is the most damage I have heard of. We chose not to go through the two narrowest with our C190P Roadtrek as an ambundance of caution. DW gets very worried and is a poor judge of distance on her side, so it gets tougher that way. The entire road up to the tunnels is very narrow and tight but doable in a B, unless you meet something coming the other way that won't move over enough to get past. Also on all the back roads and even some main ones, be aware of lots of all terrain vehicles zooming around. Many are rentals with inexperienced, maybe impaired, users and we have seen them go wide on corners and nearly get head on crashed. The ATVs is a relatively new issue there, only the last couple of years I think. We go to Custer every spring for two weeks. It is one of our favorite places.
