I'm sure someone can give me an idea of the trailered height of the typical tritoon with the bimini laid down. My goal is to build a closed door garage to keep one in, but I'm not really sure what door size the garage needs at a minimum. TIA

Depends on trailer. Brother and I have exact same trailer, but one sits higher because of how axle is connected to springs.

Bunk trailer: figure 10 feet to be safe. You might get by with 9, but there's no way it would fit under an 8-foot door.

Scissor trailer: You can lower it all the way down and set on blocks on the tubes - so probably a 7- or 8-foot door would work.

With the bimini laid down, not in trailering mode we can fit under 8'6" which gets us low pricing for the ferry crossing. This is on a Hoosier trailer with the 10" tires.

If building a garage I wouldn’t go any shorter then 10’ for a pontoon stall.

That's too close for comfort. Why so tall ? Tall trailer ?

I have a friend with a Phoenix alum bunk trailer that sits stupid high.
Takes very deep water to launch.
Wouldn't own one.

My 25' R series is on a Roadrunner bunk trailer with 13" wheels, and I'll need a 10' door when I build my garage for it. From the ground to the top of the bimini in "trailering/radar mode" it is a bit over 9' tall.
