T5 Trident height

Post by Trident59 on Thu Sep 06, 2018 5:50 pm

I have recently bought a 2009 VW T5 Trident and because it’s a high top I would like to do what I have done with previous motorhomes that I have owned, that is fix a card behind my sunvisor telling me the dimensions and in particular the height of the vehicle. Whenever I see a low bridge ahead sign I always like to have a quick glance behind the sunvisor just to calm the nerves!
The owners manual gives a height of 2690mm. But what I would like to know is whether that includes the roof mounted aerial which I think was factory fitted, but I don’t know whether they were fitted as standard and therefore whether the specified height includes the aerial.
Can anyone help?

Better to be safe. Measure it yourself better safe than sorry.
