12' Garage Door

I've been looking for a place to store my 351 DS inside. However it seems that 12 foot doors are the norm around here. The stated height of 12' 1", that doesn't seem like it's going to work. Any input from those of you that store your RV inside?

Stated height is one thing, but have you actually measured it?
Also, if your only a few inches high, and you only have to move the rig a short distance, say to the inside of a building, let air out of the tires to lose a few inches, drive it in, and air the tires back up.

OR
You can remove your ROOF AC units and drive in and reinstall after its in the garage.
OH don't forget to remove them before you drive out.

One thing you could consider is just removing the A/C shroud and you could loose approx. 1 inch then your good to go.

We store ours inside, the unit is 15 ft wide and 50 feet deep. I think it's also 15 feet tall, but not sure. It's plenty tall enough for the rv, doesn't even hit the antenna.

I have 12' 3" door. My MH height is 12' 1". I can pull my rig in straight, which I prefer, and the rear AC barely brushes the door seal. Not sure where they came up with 12' 1"? I can back my Rig in, and have no issues because the rear tires are lower (still on my gravel driveway) when the rear AC clears the door. Bottom line for me - the rear AC is higher than the front.
