Recommended Posts

BMCmalibu13

All, I have my boat sitting in the water still and need some quick dimension help!!!! i am going ot add on 5' to 6' on to my existing shed that is 20.3' long I plan on putting a 10' wide by 7.5' to 8' tall overhead garage door on the shed.

knowing this I plan on collapsing my tower, removing the ski platform, wedge and then swing the tongue out on the trailer, do you think my yaht will fit in my new boathouse?

much needed response will help!

Can't help with the width or length, but I know my vlx needed more than 7'8" to clear the garage door with the tower down.

You need 24 feet long minimum and 8 foot high door opening if you want to leave the tow hoop on while tower is folded.

Measure your trailer's width from fender to fender (or where ever the widest dimension is). I have an 06 Vride on a Malibu trailer. Backing it through my 10' gate I only had about 5 to 6 inches clearance on each side until I widened my gate by 18 inches. This might put your driving skills to the test.

Wow, I wish I had more than the 3 inches on each side - or a wooden fence that was cheap to widen!

You guys are making me feel fortunate! But seriously......there's no driveway in from of my gate and I have other obstacles I have to line the trailer up with at the side of my house where the gate is. This is before aligning to the gate. During day time it's no problem. But after a long day at the lake and a 70 mile drive back home it can be a challenge after dark.
