Trillium 13' into a workshop with a 7' doorway

With the help of a friend I slid my Trillium sideways into my garage, on the weekend. The door is 7' high and if it was 1/4" lower we would not have gotten it in. We removed the wheels and slid the frame on thin steel plate and then on the cement floor. We were able to get about 3/16" of flex as the roof of the Trillium is not totally rigid. It was a shoehorn job, but we did no damage and now I can work on it till spring in comfort.

Good thing it is a light trailer, eh?
Don't put too many heavy accessories on it now.

Plenty of room to get mine in our 8' door. Unfortunately though, it is a no go for my Escape 19.

Don't install that new MaxFan until after you have it outside again.

Is it ever nice having it inside! I was out sitting in it this morning before breakfast making measurements. Maybe I'll go pretend camping this weekend.

Sounds like a mod for the garage door is in order. It's only green and dirty and you can't take it with you

For all concerned,I had the same problem with my 13' scamp. Bought a set of 8" wheels and tires, so now when I put iy up for the winter I install the smaller wheels and tires. Don't remember what paid for the wheels and tires but they were reasonable
