    See if the sellers would allow you to try it in the garage.

    We now have a three car garage with two 8 ft doors , one 7ft, ???? But it's still like a big closet.

    Hopefully I can build a garage at the lake house for winter storage, annual payments starting to add up. Plus the 23 xlv does not fit many standard garages.

    Wax , happy wife = happy life .

    I'm on the same page, our old house was on 2 acres in the country and I could do whatever the fudge I wanted.

    The main issue is my wife hates this house, and I don't really like it that much either, and I'm renting which is like throwing money in the toilet. The market is recovering strong, so it's a good time to buy. If I buy this house, I expect to have at least $40k equity in 5 years, and then I'll sell and put that towards a down payment on a house on the lake. The situation at my current rental house is awesome, but the house itself isn't awesome and it's location sucks (all nasty ditty roads, steep hills, all not maintained by township because they're private). I'm dreading this winter when my wife can't make it up the hills in the ice and snow again.

    Actually found another really nice house today in a neighborhood we really like that has no association at all, there were boats and fifth wheels and all sorts of stuff in peoples driveways! Awesome! I measured this house's garage, and it's just over 22' deep and again about 7' tall door. Room to modify to an oversized door though. I measured the boat trailer, it's about 21'4" from very rear point (bunk end) to the fold away. So add wakeplate at 8" or so? Right at 22'. It's an oversized 2 car garage though, so there's opportunity to angle it in a little if needed.

    Good for you.... If you can avoid those crazy association rules..... Cause there always crazy people following and enforcing them t the letter of the law.... If my friend would have his camper home for more than 48 hours.... Hour 49 there were complaints..... Crazy busy bodies!!

    For garage also keep in mind if is level pavement outside or slopes away..... Mine slopes away enough that I easily fit for height....

    Yeah funny you say that. I've got a neighbor that's like that across the street right now. We don't have an association, but he will call the cops or township on anybody slightly out of line. My other neighbor said a township officer stopped by yesterday and was checking out everybody's houses because my one neighbor made a complaint about somebody not following township rules or something. Gotta love people you know.

    Default 06 LSV in the garage?

    if you already have to get a storage unit for your other stuff then why not just keep the boat there? I live in an HOA and love it. keeps my home value sky high and keeps the riff raff out. i rent a covered storage unit w/electric and security system in place for 100 bucks a month. unit is 2 miles from house, which is half mile from ramp.

    I have rental units that I rent with hoa..... That's more than enough for me....

    I would rather have my own property.... The more property u have..... Further u keep any rift raft away

    Or each their own.... That's why there are apples n oranges.....

    I was just trying to suggest to the op that when you can keep everything at your home and don't have a hoa.... It's hard to make the switch.... When u are always in a hoa.... It's what u r used to...

    I don't have a storage unit already, I keep everything at my house right now. I also own a jetski repair business on the side, so I keep some of my toys at my shop, but it's 25 minutes away so not feasible to keep stuff I use often there.

    We put an offer in on the house that doesn't have a hoa today, see what happens. I timed it from the house to the entrance of the boat ramp today...1 minute 10 seconds lol

    we bought our current house contingent on the boat fitting into the garage. we trailered over and backed in. it fit, we bought the house. 2 months later we traded it in. Also when we bought the 08 LSV, it came on a single axle trailer, so for a few weeks we used that trailer till my double axle came in, both trailers had the tower hinge point just grazing the top of the garage opening.

    Are you going to take the swim platform off? I didn't see it accounted for in your measurements. That will add another couple of feet.
