RVs wait to board the Cape May Lewes Ferry

RVs & Long Vehicle Information

Can The Ferry Accommodate My Truck or RV?

From pick-up trucks with travel trailers to Class A motorhomes to 18-wheelers, the Ferry can accommodate almost any vehicle that fits under our 13'6" height limit. In fact, we like to say, "if you can drive it, we can take it!" Take a look at the video below for more information about bringing your truck or RV aboard the Ferry.

Are there any restrictions?

Yes, there are a few, most specifically in relation to the height of the vehicle. Here are a few details:

Height Restriction: We can accommodate vehicles under 13'6"  in height. If you believe you are close to this limit, we recommend getting an accurate measurement of the height of your vehicle. However, if you are unsure of the height of your vehicle, our toll booths are equipped with height detectors that, upon entering the toll plaza, will determine if your vehicle will be able to board our ferries.

Length Allowance: There are no length restrictions, we can accommodate all vehicle lengths. 

Width Allowance: We can accommodate vehicles up to 11'3" in width. However, please note that if a vehicle is wider than 8'6", the fare is calculated to be twice the vehicle length rate as it is charged for reserving 2 spots side by side. 

The Cape May Lewes Ferry can accommodate vehicles with a maximum width of 11'3" at the wheelbase


Special Information For Vehicles With Low Clearance

If your vehicle, trailer or anything you may have in-tow has low ground clearance, please give us a call at 800.643.3779, or make sure to consult a tide chart prior to booking. For vehicles/trailers with low clearance, book your crossing two hours before/after the time of high tide, as that should allow sufficient clearance under your chassis to board.

If your vehicle has low ground clearance, choose a departure within 2 hours of high tide to avoid hanging up on the transfer bridge

Attempting to board at other times may result in your vehicle "hanging up" on the boarding ramp, as shown above.

Are there any other restrictions?  



No more than two (2) five-gallon externally mounted cylinders of propane per RV are allowed on the ferry. Cylinders that are included as part of the motorhome are excepted. Propane cylinders must be safely secured to the vehicle, upright, with all valves closed and tagged. Propane-powered refrigerators must have the thermostat control turned "off." 


Customers may carry no more than two (2) six-gallon, UL-listed, or USCG-approved portable containers, or twelve gallons.
