We are putting on an addition to the garage and it would be perfect for the boat to fit in it!

I've done some searching and have seen different heights on 205s, but could not find anything on a 2006 X1. Does anyone know the height with the tower folded down?

Thanks,
Tim

I am just speaking from experience on this one. I also designed a garage addition to fit around my "then" wakeboat only to find out in 4 years I ended up going with a bigger boat and had to re-mod the garage. My advice would be to make it as big as you can at the moment. I would go minimum 8-10ft door. Just me.



My 2000 X-star will fit under a 8ft'r with plenty of room. I have even squeezed it into a 7ft'r I know the X-1 tower sits a little higher than my 2000 when folded, but it should clear and 8ft door no problem depenging on the slope of your driveway.

With the tower in the down position w/ 15 in tires (Single axle MC trailer)

You should be able to fit the boat in a standard depth 21 foot garage w/ a 7 foot door

You may need to drop the trailer tongue all the way down

I have a 2006 X1. My storage building has a 12 ft door. I can put my X1 in without folding the tower, tandem trailer

From experience I can tell you that a 06 x1 on a single axle MC trailer will fit into a 7 ft garage door with less than 1/4 of an inch to spare. Measure your door as most are not exactly 7 ft. You will need 6 ft 11 3/4 inches.

As others have said, make it bigger. With the redesign on the towers on 07 to current, you can not get an 08 x2 in a 7 ft door without taking one of the board rack forks off. In a perfect world I would go at least 10.5 feet because my tower is roughly 10 ft 2 inches tall on my 08 x2. This would allow you not to fold your tower down. Otherwise 8 ft should allow you to fold your tower and get MOST boats in.

On an 06 X-1 you can get in in 8 foot door no problem.
