You will have trouble fitting it the first time, but after that it should fit every time. Of course it won't be covered any more.

Jayco website says 109.25" with a/c. OP said he's not going to have an a/c unit. I still don't think it's going to make. Keep us posted. And is it just me or does that vehicle leaning to the drivers side?

I think your carport needs a basement. Jack hammer the concrete out and you'll probably fit. My neighbor hit the awning on his house a couple years ago, it wasn't a concrete pad underneath so we rented a backhoe and dug him enough clearance. I have to do the same over the winter.

I almost took that to the gutter. Impossible for me to pass it up completely though. My wife even got a chuckle out of it.

Haha. Guess I could have re-phrased that one just a little bit.

Hi, I have a 28BHBE and I have to move it into a tight space and I take a 5 x 5 beam and bolt it to the axels which I then use the Beam as a base to bolt 4 2500lb casters to so I can move my TT up against a wall by hand..You can use u bolts to bolt the I beam to the top of the axels and mount casters onto the beam and pull the tires off which can lower you TT by 8 inches. Its a pain but I only do it when I put my TT away for the season, then when I get it out in the spring time. Just and idea.

A great idea at that!

Ok - you're probably right about the tires- since the 154bh has a wall ac and roof only a slight rise for vent on the right (aligns with tall side of carport) was thinking the measurements went to highest spot. May have to pay for a spot but I love the running start ideas! Thanks everyone!
