  • Height of Nash and Arctic Fox WITHOUT Air Conditioner

    Still researching what trailer we are going to buy, and want to store it next to our house on a long gravel pad. But.....the corner of our roof overhangs just a bit on one side....

    Was wondering how tall the trailer is without the air conditioner? Can anyone help me out???

    thanks.......kr

    If I understand correctly, you wont have trouble with the AC height unless you can get a couple feet under the overhang. You might worry more about the vents, rack and ladder, and such along the tt roof edge.

      If you decide to omit the air conditioner from a trailer, it may be an issue, when you try and resell it ... even in Oregon.

      You may also change your mind, and want / need air in the future.

      Might be cheaper to order the A/C unit, then have it removed (keeping it in you possession), so you can reinstall it at a later date. That way, all the wiring, breaker connection and thermostat will be installed and ready to go.

        Ive measured our 27-5L at the high point which is he bathroom vent cover. Due to some tunnels and bridges Ive seen in Oregon pointing the noted clearance height to an area near the fog line I have also measured the area just above the entry door which is about 12.

          I clearly worded by first post poorly!!! Just the passenger side of the trailer is in jeopardy of hitting our overhang, and was wondering how high the trailer is.

          All of the height measurements on the website and brochure, include the air conditioner!! I am guessing they are about 15" tall, if so, I can figure it out.

          I may have to head down to measure one just to be sure!!!

          Thanks to all who responded....just a dumb question.

            No dumb questions on this forum...

            We have a 29-5T 5th wheel, and the highest spot measures at 13'-6" (bathroom roof vent cover).

            Most RV heights measure at 13'-6" max. Most states limit maximum vehicle heights between 13'-6" & 14'-0".

                So you're thinking bumper pull? One thing to consider is one of those motorized trailer movers. They can snake a trailer into places you can't believe and really aren't that spendy. Roof overhangs are always a problem. It's real easy to not look up.

                  Thanks Ken....Ya, trying to decide between the 25Y and the ORV 26RLS......we have a steep driveway, but plenty of room on our side yard to store it, but the overhang is about 11 feet up from the ground, and sticks out about 2 feet.....I can still get around it if the trailer is too tall, but it would be dicey!

                    The back of the widest bay (about 45' long), in our covered parking was a little short in height for our 26N. Since it was gravel, I lowered the ground a few inches for the back 10 feet or so and now it is good. Just something to consider if it works in your spot.

                        Also............Is your driveway nearly level with your side yard parking? Will your TT be up higher at back end when backing in to hit gutter/roof overhang before parked?
