Roof Air Conditioner Box is too tall

Our new White Hawk is 6 inches too tall to fit in the roll-up Overhead Door frame, where our Holiday Rambler was stored. Short of working on the roll-up door frame, digging out the floor of the pad, taking off the Air Conditioner or letting air out of the tires, I am curious if anyone had a solution that worked for this problem.

That air conditioner is the highest profile of any I have ever seen, so that exchange is on the radar.

A they do make low profile rooftop AC units. The Dometic Penguin is one but at roughly $1300 I'm not sure if you would want to go that route. It's likely going to be the most cost effective of your options....
