Tight Squeeze~

Hey gang! I'm really excited to get my family's first TT. We are looking for a bunkhouse and have held off because the area we would like to store it in has a height challenge. Other than tent trailers or hi-lo's we think a 154BH will slide right in our slant-roof carport. I am including a pic with my 2000 Land Cruiser and the measurements we are working with. I am even willing to let some air out of the tires to make it work! It looks like the lack of AC on the roof and the white box on the top left will allow it to fit.

Can anyone verify that there's would be able to fit?

Thanks!

Yikes! Pic added! The dealer was unsure and wasn't able to commit to my idea with lowered tire air pressure!

It looks like the height of your camper is roughly 9 feet. How tall is the low side of your carport?

That's going to be tight. The only way you will know for sure is to get a measuring tape and measure it. Don't forget that you need extra room to raise / lower the tounge to hitch up and that you won't have control over what happens when you tow vehicle goes over trasistions in your approach.

For you to get any significant drop your going to be letting a lot of air out and that will quickly become a source for errors and also will quickly damage your tire sidewalls. That's not a viable solution.

According to the numbers on the pic the high side is only 8' 5" tall so I don't see any way he can ever get that trailer in that carport. I guess you could take the wheels and axles off and slide it back on the frame rails but that just seems like a lot of work.

Ha! I never zoomed in on the picture to see the measurements! No way is that trailer going to fit... Unless like Hohenwald says... Nah, just not going to happen...

I think the OP might have looked at the specs and read the "interior" height number instead of the "exterior" height number.
