Exclamation 13' Scamp w/AC height

We are ordering our Scamp 13' with AC and I was wondering whether the Scamp would fit in my garage. Anyone have the overall height for a Scamp w/AC?
Thanks, Bill

Ours is 8'2". We just returned from the storage place after measuring our 13' Scamp with ac. My husband is modifying the garage so we can park the Scamp indoors.

How tall is your garage door? A new 13 with air will be a little over 8ft in height. The height will vary. A Polar Cub is shorter (10-1/2") than a Duo-Therm (13") for instance. My 13 with A/C is less than 8Ft, but it is Prefire and has a Mini-Mach (9-1/2").
The good news is that you can fudge a few inches simply by lifting and lowering the tongue as you go through the door since the axle is the pivot point.
A normal garage door on a house garage is 7ft, some are 8ft.

The use of 8" wheels/tires (for storage)should bring the height of the trailer to prefire numbers.
I would ask if they could provide a Polar Cub.

Wayne at Scamp told me our 16' needs a 9' clearance. So it is 8' and nearly 11" with Dometic AC.

Smaller wheels will not help us with standard 7' garage doors.
