View Full Version : Help..need approx 04 LSV length w/trailer for new garage design.

So we are unexpectedly having a new home designed and our 04 LSV is in storage and I need to make sure the garage we spec out is deep enough to back it in all the way in with the swim deck and tongue of the trailer..we have a std single axle boatmate trailer..

Our current garage is only 21' deep and not even close..

What will work? 26', 28' deep?

Yeah I know deeper the better but based on the house design I can't over due it..need it right on with a foot or two to spare..

Do you have a swing away tongue on the trailer?

Double check the archives yourself, because I don't want you mad at me, but it's listed at 24 ft 5 in w/ trailer.

Thanks....yep checked that..I just wanted to be 100% certain but 24'-5" sounds right..worst case I could remove the platform ...

I would make it big enough for your next boat. Think about the 2013 LSV with trailer w/ swing away tongue. Make it big enough to keep the platform on. I take mine off every time. I mean, if you're building, why not?

^With a 12 foot door. Trust me 9'6" is not tall enough.

I did mine at 30 with an Outback and Single Axle Boatmate and I wouldn't go any less or you have to open the door to go around it, front and back. Did it with 8 ft high doors front and back(Best decision) and just fold down the tower. Wife didn't like the pole barn look.
