Dimensions, dumb question

I'm building a pole barn and want to get my trailer inside. I have a 2015 8329ss and the height is 9'10" but I have two a/c units on top. Trailer is in the shop right now so I don't have access to measure it. What is the overall height WITH the a/c units?

My suggestion would be to make the doorway a minimum of 13'6" or better yet 14'. Who knows what you may purchase in the future. Yes there would be a increased cost but it would be minimal.

I would add at least 1 foot to the height. Just a thought but maybe make it tall enough in case you ever decide to get another RV. Jerry.

My wildcat on the web site was listed at 11' 10" with the air cond. unit came to 12' 4" it depends what air cond. unit but mine are 14" tall and are mounted at the highest point on the roof you need to measure there and add about 6".

I put my 1905 in garage. When I bought mine. The height did not include anything on roof. A Mach 3 is14-16 inches tall. Gasket adds height also. I had to let air out of tires a little to get in and out. I swapped the Mach 3 with a Mach 8. Problem solved.

You can not trust the published measurements either

I agree going with a 14' high door. I went with a 12' high door in the shop when I built it because I had a 10'6" high TT. We now have a 12'3" high 5er so now it won't fit in the shop.

Now, I didn't build the shop to house the RV, but it was sure nice to be able to when I needed to work under it.
