Default 2005 Classic 2505C

Can anyone tell me what the height on this model is from the ground to the top of the AC in the down position - trying to determine if it'll fit in a standard garage?

I measured my 2805C and it is 90" give or take an inch.

Default Height

Jim L,
You just saved me a job I've been meaning to do for some time. You measured your 2805C. Since I have the same you did me a favor. So thanks, job well done.
Now, is that to the top of the AC? Thanks.
God Bless

To all,

Many thanks to you all for your time and effort in providing me with some very valuable information, I now know this particular model will not fit in my garage.

Again, many thanks.

For info, I just measured my 2203 towlite and found it to be 84" to the top of the AC unit, plus or minus an inch.

You probably already know this, but the HiLo trailers with tipouts are higher than those without.

Hi Papa
Yes that measurement is to the top of the AC.

I'd recommend measuring any other model you might be interested in before buying since keeping any RV outdoors is not a good idea.... Real dirty words for any RV - "Stored outside".
Good luck! Bob
Yeah I was going to say the same thing... to the top of the roof is one thing, to the top of the A/C unit depends on the A/C unit itself - make, model, year... along with the tires and such... I would measure yours (or potential) before simply backing it into the garage thinking "hey they said it was xx" high and it will fit..."

Watch this ... now it fits!!! And it fixes that little problem of the A/C dripping inside...

Default How high the AC Momma?

I suppose the measurement question has been figured out by now, but for other owners of HiLos... try this. Providing your HiLo is setting on a driveway, or level surface, place a step ladder next to it. One member climbs the ladder.

Place one end of a 2 by 4 at least 8 foot long, (or use a long rod, or pole), on the top of the AC unit. Family member on the ladder raises the opposite end until you think it looks near horizontal as possible. Measure the distance from the bottom of the 2 by 4 to the ground.

One thing to remember though. Most garage door openings have a slight rise from ground level into the garage. This keeps rain water from flowing into the garage. Just remember to make compensation for the fact a trailer will rise also as it goes into the garage also.

Lots of Luck...
