Yikes! If I see a sign that's less than 10', I don't even attempt it.

Ouch, I was wondering if Escape gives you a height measurement when you pick up your trailer or do you do that yourself?

The website has the height for their trailers...

That 8 foot clearance has got to be rare, not to mention freaky unusual. It looks like a railroad bridge on a side street nearby the old Ballantine Brewery in Newark,

Wondering if those freight cars have hops in them.

I would think that the height of the 5.0 could vary quite a bit, depending upon its tow vehicle, since the front of the trailer over the truck bed is the highest part.

I would not rely on the specs on the site.

It would depend how your trailer is equipped. Do you have air? Do you have Maxxfan? Do you have high lift axle?
Site says a new 17B is 8'2". I've measured my old 2009 trailer at 8'4". I have high lift and 15" tires.
I used a 4' level and tape measure to determine the highest point on my trailer ( and then I'd allow 6" pee-your-pants factor ).
