2013 x2 garage height
About to purchase a 2013 x2 on a single axel trailer. Does anybody know if I can squeeze it in through a 7 ft door with the z4 tower folded? I can get 7 ft 1 inch opening height with a little rework of trim. if not it will be the x14v with the same tower Any thoughts?

I have the same question as looking at a X25 with same 7' (80") garage door opening. If tower is dropped will it fit as tower is the highest point.

No on the X2, but there are ways around it. Definitely no on the X25. Per my MC rep, the 2014 single axle trailer height is 87", the tandem axle trailer is 85". The 2013's should be the same.

Here's some info on other options, including how I get mine to fit in a 7' door with a custom trailer hitch:

There's a link to another thread that shows the hitch.

Do the deal contingent on the boat fitting.
I did it that way.

Well I have reworked door opening and have 87 inches cant get any more. Will the new x2 with zft4 fit folded down?

Update on Garage door height. I have removed trim and bottom of box header, added filler blocks to box and installed thinner bottom on header. This is now flush with brick lentil. Have 7 ft 3 inches opening height with a 7 ft door. Am installing a hinged trim with brick molding and weather strip to match 7 ft door height will post pictures later. Now the x2 with z4 will slip right in Yea!

I looked at doing an x2 and x25 and the spec I was given for height on a double axel trailer was 87" so replaced the header above my double garage door to raise it to the spec and then found that the x2 was 87" and the x25 needed more.

Unfortunately I bought the x25 and I absolutely love this boat, my 3rd Masterdraft (previously had '93 PS205 and '09 x45).

So to make it fit, I lowered the garage floor 6" to get 93" overall and it fits nicely, talk about a major remodel... I also bumped out the back of the garage while tearing into it all to give more margin on length.

It isn't just the ZFT4 tower to worry about, when folded, the high point is the bimini top on top of the folded tower.

And for a nice touch, mount IP cameras at the back of the garage and you can see the boat backing up to the wall plus the sides on a tablet in your tow vehicle.
