Adding this data to the pinned topic. Data is not current but is a good guideline.

The goal of this thread is to provide a catagorized listing of the clearance required for each boat model with the factory offered towers installed. Data is provided for the tower in both the folded and raised position if available. If you have confirmed measurements please, contact me, and I will add them to the table below.

You guys may want to qualify whether or not you have the lowrider option on your trailer because that would make a difference on the overall height dimension. It may not make a big difference, but for some every little bit matters. If you don't know, then you could just state unknown.

Good idea! Put a note if you know, and I'll add it in the margin for that measurement. Also, these are just a baseline, you can gain more clearance by lowering the tongue, deflating the tires, etc.

It seems people also want to know the width of the boat/trailer. That would be good to.

Thanks.

I'm sure this is answered somewhere else on the site, but I sure couldn't find it. On a 2008 VTX with the tower down, what height garage door would I need. My preference would be to be able to back it in without having to unhook it and monkey around. It looks like people are implying a standard 8 foot garage would allow this, but I want to confirm that as we might be looking at plans this weekend.

Thanks in advance
