need to know specifically because my garage may be an issue.

i have 22ft 4in of depth, maybe a hair more

but i only have just shy of 83in of clearance, or a little under 7ft clearance through the door opening.

i don't know about the height, my 3rd car door is 8'. i don't think the LSV will fit with the wake plate. My dealer brought a boat out to fit test in my garage. the door cleared the fold away by 2", i have a length of 22'1 from the plywood corner in the picture. if you can remove some studs (put a header into replace them) for the wake plate, you might make it

i extended my garage, but i had to make this bay at the back to accommodate other windows, plumbing, etc.

Don't forget that you can lower the tire pressure to clear the door and then refill them once you get it inside!

I got mine into the garage by using a floor jack under the tongue and folding up the tongue jack until I cleared the door. Worked like a charm. I then used the tongue jack once I was inside. Kind of hillbilly, but it worked.

I had to let out about 25 to 30 lbs of pressure in my tires. Once inside, I put the air back in. Also, release the garage door and push up as high as possible. Even thou your tower is folded down, it may still hit the door. I also had to remove the swim step. With the boat sitting caddy corner, it fits perfectly.
Once inside, you should hang up the tower. This wil prevent it from sitting on either the cover or the boat.

I just ordered a new 2008 LSV and I had the same question. My garage is 23' 8" deep and the door height is 84 1/2". I called Bryan at Moomba and he told me the height on the tower folded down is 87" with the tounge at 19" and 84 1/2" at 11" tounge all the way down....
