Thanks guys, I have 9 inches between the top of the windshield and the bottom of the garage door, so I should be good.
Will know for sure in a couple of weeks.

Hope that helps.
Leads me to believe full and mini tower are same height folded down. Folding forward and using a significant drop hitch to get tongue low will buy you extra room too.

I am fairly certain that the mini and full ND towers share the same legs and attach at the same point on the boat. The difference comes in from the hinging point up and the framework of the full is just taller.

I had to disconnect the top hinge, but it barely fit with about 3 inches to spare. The guys at ND did a great job with the install. Toured the MC factory while we were in the area. Thanks all for the input...

3" is lots of room. In my 7' garage with normal tower I brushed the weather stripping in and out..
