How Wide Can Your RV Be?

The legal maximum width limit for RVs vary in different states. RVs that are of 8 ½ft (1or 02″) in width, are not legal on all Roads. If your RV is Wide within these limits, it is permitted on all Federal Roads, which includes the Interstate Highways.


According to RV-Roadtrips,

“in most states, anything over 8-1/2 feet wide requires a special oversized load permit every time it will be moved.  That is unless you live very close to a qualifying interstate highway.  Some states limit an RV’s width to only 8 feet wide!”

These are 13 States that permit RVs with a width of 102 Inches on the Federal Roads. Namely,

  • Delaware
  • Arizona
  • Michigan
  • Louisiana 
  • North Carolina 
  • Florida
  • Georgia 
  • Michigan
  • Illinois
  • Kentucky 
  • West Virginia 
  • Maryland 
  • D.C

RVs wider than 102 inches need an oversize load permit to be on the Federal Roads. Make sure you prepare an itinerary marking of the legal maximum width permitted in a state before RVing to it.
