G5 Tower folded pics?

Anyone have a picture of a G5 tower folded all the way down?  Wondering if it sits as low as the GX or if it still significantly site above the top of the windshield.  
 

thanks

Did you ever find a photo? I'm wondering if the hoop comes off, and how the bimini gets stored.

I'm on vacation at the moment but can take one mid next week when I get home.

Hi we have a 2021 23 LSV with the tower folded the highest point is the lower board racks, we have 4 bungie racks and it’s lower with them folded in. It scrapes in a 2.4m garage (7’10.5” I think) it’s a Australian easytow trailer, so I’m not sure if that adds or reduces hight? Clamping racks will be higher and no racks will be lower again. Hope this helps.

Some more pics, we have the Bimini pushed as far forward as it will go as it’s weight holds the tower down that little bit more.

Just to compare with the Gx on a 23LSV.  The high point (with the racks removed... and they come off very easy on the Gx) is pretty much the windshield + an inch or two.

Dang it! I've been folding mine down wrong. OK I just discovered the pivot pins. I sure feel stupid. Now tell me about the racks. Is there a quick release or do you unbolt them?

No quick release.  Just remove the one hex bolt and lift off.

Cover goes over the tower. Of course it requires that you buy a different cover.
