Check the actual measurements of your door opening, Mike. It could be a bit less than a full 8'.
Official manufacturer's height of a 16' Casita
is 7'8", and Casita
mounts factory AC through a front closet on the 16'er. Official height of a 16' Scamp
without roof AC is 7'10". Early units had factory AC installed in a side closet; sometime(?) they switched to a roof mount. As far as I know, both specifications have remained unchanged over the years, subject to minor variations.
Since both are close to 8', and since modifications (new axle
, larger tires
,...) can affect the height, you'll want to check each unit you find on a case-by-case basis.
