Default Tight fit

Hi there,

I have an 3-car garage where each bay is arched - See illustration. The height of the garage is 6'8'' at each side of the bay (beginning of the arch) and 7'7'' at the center. While I can easily fit a standard sized (5'7'') TM, I run into trouble if the TM has a low profile AC unit, which adds 14 1/4 inches, according to the TM specification.

With the AC, I am about 1 1/2 inch short at the sides of the bay. But looking at TM photos, I notice that the TM's AC is centered, which could give me the necesary clearance to fit the TM with AC. So, I need your advice, please. Coud you tell me:

1) Is the AC really centered and
2) How far in is the AC unit from the edge of the TM roof's?

Thanks for all the help,
CampAllDay

Mine is centered. Awning width is my issue on single car doors.

Thanks for the info, TrailManorMan. Could you tell me the approx. dimension of the AC. I know it is 14 1/4 inches high, but how about approx. length and width?

Cheers,
CampAllDay

About 38 long 28 wide but only an estimate.

With clearance lights and awning I am too wide on my single car door, I
can go in a two car and then get it over to the single. Three car garage double and single door is ok. Height is real close but can be done.

Sorry to hear that the TM wont fit . ... ... how wide is your garage?

Model 2720 is 7'7'' and the awning + lights together are 5 inches. Wow, 8 ft is my width limit. I think I have a problem too.

Maybe the awning is not needed. How much do the lights protrude, do you know?

Yep, I think I would also have to remove the awning. I don't have a double bay -- only 3 singles .

Thanks for the help, TrailManorMan.

Do a search for a thread by Popbeavers on this. He hinged his awning. Two pins as I recall and it flipped on top of the TM.
