Regardless of how level the campsite is... it's got to be way more than 8 inches from the ground to the top of the door... unless someone smashed your camper.. lol.

I think the OP means from the ground just under the door to it's top. Slope of the site can have some effect on this if the curb side tire is lifted to level the camper. I have low walls so I can't help on this one.

Thanks to all who have responded, I was looking for this measurement to see if my idea for an awning would work. If it does, I will let you all know.

The Measurement is...

Just found out from the dealer the measurement from the ground to the top of the door, on level ground, is about 8 feet. Thanks to all who replied.

The A-frame shape does make awning compatibility a challenge. We have a 19' Rockwood HW. Here is a solution that I have come up with that works well for us. It's inexpensive, easy to employ (with some practice), is lightweight, and easy to make. The triangular shadecloth "sails" are less than $20 each at Costco and come in 3 colors. We bought 4 in order to overlap them to increase the sun blockage. The supports are 2" diameter ABS and have a cap with a short bolt to keep the corner of the sails from slipping off the support posts. I have a center post cut to 4' for greater height in the center and I have 2 at 2' long on the ends/sides. Bungees at the 3 support posts connected to ground spikes, allow the sails to flex in the breeze. I am working on a solution to support the sails if you staying at a facility that does not allow you to hammer spikes in the ground. The last photo shows the D-ring mounted on the peak of the roof panel with the caribeeners that connect the sails to the peak. The D-ring is mounted with Threaded Wood Insert Nuts (Home Depot) that have had the spiked tabs flattened on the backside. I have attached the caribeeners before I push the roof up, and, I've tried attaching them by standing on a ladder AFTER the roof has been raised. The latter method is probably better for anyone having issues manually raising the roof. Camp on!
