04 x2 height tower up

Need help, I building a shed roof off my garage to park the boat under. The boat is in storage and shrink wrapped so I can't get at it to measure it. Any one know what a 04 x2 measures for height with the tower up? I searched but couldn't find a concrete answer. I'm framing it to be less than 12' but would like a real number. It's on a tandem trailer too but that shouldn't make a diff over a single.

It's about 10'4" with the light on a single axle. It should be an inch or so lower on tandem axle. The only reason I know this is that I was stopping to check in at a hotel and had to drop the tower to get under their awning out front. Their clearance said 10'4". It would have been really close to making it, but I didn't want to chance it. That tower is really tall. I had a couple of friends with nautiques behind me, and they made it under by a foot or more.

Excellent...thanks. I'm going to frame for 11' then, 12' was pushing it with what I have work with. 6" or so buffer should be fine.
Yeah those towers are tall, I measured mine once because I was afraid of a couple of bridges on my route to the lake. I couldn't remember if it measured out in the 10s or 11s tho...that's why I asked. That extra foot helps me out tho, thanks

hmmm ... I have an '04 X2 on tandem trailer and found that it will barely NOT fit into my 9' garage door (at least I am pretty sure it's a 9'???). I forgot to drop the tower and backed up to the door. It ALMOST fit but sheared the light off the top and left a small indention in the wood frame where the light base "touched".

I will have to measure my garage door opening but pretty sure it's a 9'h x 10'w ... whatever it is, you need to allow another few inches for clearance.

Yeah I don't think they measure in the 9s...like I said I thought mine was in the 10 or 11s. 9 sounds small but I could be wrong

Yeah, there's no way it's 9'. The hinge points on the tower are pretty close to 7'. There's at least another 3' on top of that. I've never measured mine. My assessment is based solely on what was marked at a hotel. Who knows how accurate that was.

Mine is in the garage with the tower folded, but I can probably take some measurements and get a pretty good estimate when I get home tonight.

My measurements of it folded down in the garage put the height to the rear screw hole at 65" and the distance from that point on the tower leg to the light at 65". That makes it 10'9" total.

JRW are you on a single or tandem axle trailer? Rear screw hole on mine was between 61" & 62", garage door measured out at 9' roughly tall (+/- 1/2 inch)... Pictures to come tomorrow. Now I am really curios!

I stand corrected kinda ... my garage door height is 108 (9'0") inches but the roof eave is where the tower light hit and that is 122 inches (10'2") ... 10'2" hits right at the base of the tower light on mine ('04 X2 ZeroFlex tower tandem trailer but NOT a MC factory trailer) and the rear tower bolt height is just shy of 62".
