Just wanted to see if anyone knew the exact height of a 2008 PS197 with a 2008 MC Mini Tower sitting on the low profile MC trailer?

Thanks in advance.

Buehler....Buehler....Anyone.....Anyone
I know someone out there has this set-up, I am just curious as to whether or not I would have to fold down a mini-tower in order to get my boat in the garage or can I leave it up?

Thanks in advance.

My 05 with mini was around 8 1/2 feet on a single axle trailer. I know my trailer was not the low profile, and tower design has changed. What is the height of your door?

The current garage door is at 7 feet so I am very doubtful that it would go in with the tower up but the new garage will be much taller!

My TT boats have always fit in gargage with the tower down it will fit in a standard 7' high door.
once inside you put the tower back up. my 2 cents

It will fit with the tower folded down..... My 8 foot door allows me to Bly fold the rear legs and leave the front legs up. On my 214 with mini tower .....

With a 7 foot door it should fit ...... Are you getting a new ride or a new tower? If you don't mind me asking?

It will definitely not fit with tower up. My 05 with mini tower wouldn't fit in 8' high door with tower up. If you are going with a new garage, I'd put in at least a 10' door. I changed 8' to a 10' and could get my X14 in with about an inch to spare with tower up. I'd suggest 12' if plans allow. You wont have a 197 forever most likely, and you may as well plan now.

The plan is to add the 08 mini-tower to my existing PS197....OH and that bimini I so badly need now!!! So, no plans for a new boat this year but the plan is for the new garage to get started in the spring and it will have at least a 12' door, possibly taller.

The boat will be at my house for the upcoming season for the first time in several years, as opposed to sitting on my lift, so I just wanted options. My old 2002 and 2005 both had full size towers that I could fold down and get into the garage, I was just hopng to sneak by with the mini!

My 94 205 does not fit with the tower up in a 10x10 garage.
