I was wondering if any FMCA members have ever crossed the sunshine skyway bridge in their RV.  If so, are there any tips for crossing?  I'm sure that there must be wind restrictions for RV's.  Thank you. :)

I have crossed it several times in my RV. No problems.  No restrictions I am aware of.  I have heard if there is really bad weather, they sometimes close it, but that is very rare.  I even crossed it once in very heavy fog and it was fine.

Thank you so much.  I have several weeks free and was planning to hop around The Tampa area south to Tamiami and then around and back up the east coast.  Thanks!!

We just crossed it back in March or April in our MH. It's no biggie. There are no restrictions, other than if the bridge is closed due to high winds. That doesn't occur often, and when it does there are warning signs flashing before you pass the last exit.
I lived in the area for appx 17 years and crossed it many times before we bought the MH. I remember very few times the bridge was closed for high winds.
