Need answer quickly, garage door

What height does the garage door need to be? I do not have a car garage to see if it will work. I want to put my scamp in storage but do not know what the height of garage door needs to be. Checking into a storage place today. Please if someone can help me out here.

Marge, there are a number of considerations and it all comes down to the absolute high point of YOUR trailer. Does it have roof A/C? Top vent covers? How old is the trailer, has the axle settled?

Your profile doesn't give the year of your trailer and I searched your profile and can't find that info. If you update your profile, you may get better answers to your questions.

Sorry, I can't be more help

It's an 1981 with nothing on the roof yet and the original axle, It will easily fit under a standard 7ft garage door opening. It's 80" wide and 13ft long(including the tongue).
BTW Marje;
I forgot to tell you....If your storage facility is a bit short on the door opening, your local farm store sells 8" wheels with tires for a good price which will be a direct fit and bring your trailer down even more. Best to use them for storage access only.
