Default Minimum garage opening width?

Can someone confirm that a 2720 WILL pass through a standard garage aperture, which is actually 94 inches wide. I believe the answer is YES providing the awning and sidelights are removed (spec says overall width is 91 inches) but it would be reassuring to have a forum member confirm this before I go ahead with a purchase.

My actual garage door (the part that opens and closes, goes up and down) is 9ft wide and I can juuuuuuuust sneak my 3326 through it with the awning and lights still in place.

Wow. That surprises me! The widest shell (front shell) measures 7'6" excluding the awning. There may be an inch required on either side for the latches.

If your garage is 94", it looks like it will work, but you'll become an expert backing it up real quick. Either that, or you'll be widening your garage door.

Hey Shane, your door may be 9', but how wide is your opening? I find it difficult to image any trailer being over 8' wide and legal.

Max width in Florida for a trailer is 8'6" (102") as to lights:
Trailers over 80 inches in width, except for boat and house trailers needing special permits, must have the following:
•On the front, 2 clearance lamps, 1 at each side; on the rear, 2 clearance lamps, 1 at each side, and on vehicles manufactured after July 1, 1959, 3 identification lamps in a horizontal row between 6 to 12 inches from each other; or
•On each side, 2 side marker lamps, 1 at or near the front and 1 at or near the rear.
plus 2 stop/tail/turn signal lights and a license plate light.

I have an 8' door and with three bolts removed can flip the awning on top but since have pad and grotto in back, have never tried to put TM in garage.

ps spec says 7'7" (91") width but also "add 5" for awning and clearance lights".
