Yes the height of the trailer includes the AC or the distance to the highest part of the camper when it is level. If you run with the nose of the camper 2 feet high then you had better measure your actual height. Forest River and most mfrs measure the unit outside bumper to end of trailer ball mounting.

I also wonder if the manufacturer advertised height includes the AC units on the roof.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks!
Just based on my little bit of research recently, FR lists end to end length and height w/ AC in the brochures. Model numbers below 30' seem to indicate overall length whereas units over 30' appear to indicate box size in the model number.

My model number is T2850, the overall length in just below 32 feet. Some may be this way but in my case it isnt. I just tell every one it's a 32 footer......

Now, I agree with you
My 2104S is just shy of 22' and my 2703WS is just over 32'.
