Hi
Our 75 cfl independence motor home goes safely under bridges of 3.2 m, probably with a safety margin of .2........
We have 4 seasons hatches and a tv aerial that are the highest points on the roof.
Not near it at the moment but could do a more defined measure on the weekend if you think it worthwhile.

John the height of our motorhomefrom the side is 2.85 metres, then  we have the 4 seasons hatches and tv aerial adding almost an extra 20cm .... we have therefore
 ourselves a safety margin of 3.2m.
Trust this is helpful and that before too long your carport is home to another Bedi motorhome!

Hi John
We are currently enjoying a Bedi trip annd the best we've achieved would be 15 litres per 100km .....depending on conditions it seems to vary up to a worst of 17/18... but that is comparable to our old 100 series towing a 17ft van.
By the way we went over a weighbridge a few days ago and she weighed in at 4.08 tonne..got a bit of a shock, better go on a diet.. ;)
Regards
Bob
Ps.. we are really enjoying it and its easy and relaxing to drive considering the age. The v6 has plenty of power..our biggest concern is the Dr um brakes on long downhill sections..we are quite cautious with that...

Thanks for the info Bob.  May be a interest to you that front disc brakes  are a easy conversion   for bedfords   I have read. Am sure some  one  Buga could help out with info if you wanted to go disc brakes.   A down hill runaway bedford motorhome would be no fun.
