Mini-Tower for 209 / 197

I have a mini-tower on order with New Dimensions for my PS209 and was wondering if anyone could tell me the height of the tower when folded for storage? Measurements from a 209 or 197 will point me in the right direction. I am trying to determine if I am going to have to adjust my garage door for clearance.
thanks.

Pretty sure it’s no higher than the windshield.

Just checked my 197 and the tallest point on the ND tower when fully folded is the hinge point which sits about 3 inches above the windshield.
Hope this helps.

I have a Zero Flex on my 197 and a standard garage door. Folded it barely slides in.

2004 197 with full new dimension tower, trailer level and tower folded forward is 7ft even. Mini tower should be shorter

On my 2007 197 with a Mini-tower on a single axle trailer measure 80.5"--I checked it on both sides to be sure. Standard 7" garage door and fits fine. From an "above the winshield perspective, I put a level at the walk-through hinge point and then measured 6.5" as the distance above that for the tower (highest folded point).

Hope that helps.
