I kind of doubt it, a standard garage door opening is 9'wide by 7'high.
We had to build a special garage for the MKP.

Some of the oldest models, 70s-80s, will. Some models immediately after that could be forced in if the tires were taken off the trailer and it was rolled in on its rims. Some have jack hammered, trenched and recessed the garage floor to make it happen. Others have modified their structure to accomodate a taller door. A lot of folks create a dedicated parking pad or build a separate garage or shed. The newer the trailer, the heavier and taller it will be.

Casita sold 10" storage rims for this purpose several years back. They weren't a popular item and are no longer available through them I'm told.

My 1991 Scamp 13' is factory spec'd at 7' 4" and is actually an inch or so taller because of the fantastical fan. I was able to (barely) get it in my 7'0" garage by removing the 13" rims/tires and replacing them with 12" tireless rims, plus I installed a tongue jack with a wheel.

Hi Clint - we are able to park our 13ft Scamp in the garage 'cuz we are blessed with over-height doors. We don't have AC ... if we did, it wouldn't fit. In our climate, it is great to be able to store the Egg out of snow & hot sun. Happy Camping, LdB

I think I've heard that term once. Isn't that the storage room with the big door?

My Compact Jr. will fit in my standard garage without any modifications.

My Love Bug got a 5" lift with the new axle but it still fits in my garage due to 8' doors. I put extra tall doors in in case I someday need a handicap van for extended family living with us. For now it works great to get the camper indoors. I have about 3" to spare without A/C.
