Lightbulb Airstream Dimensions

Seeking the Height of a 74 Airstream Excella 500.

Including the AC and TV-antenna. or an open vent dome, or whatever sticks up the highest.

In other words what is the lowest clearance I can go under?
I am assuming 7.00-15XC tires. (which were standard on it)

Whatever height you get may not be accurate. It all depends on a number of factors. Gear in the trailer? or not. Water tank full or half full or dry? Air pressure in the tires, as well as general condition of the axles. Almost everthing mentioned will lower the trailer and diffrent brands of AC units sit higher than others. Your best bet may be to befriend someone who has access to scaffolding. Then you can park next to it and measure your unit.

I assumed that 12 feet was my limit when I towed, that was the best measurement I could get on my 74 Overlander.
