The Penguin II sits 9 1/2" above the roof line. I've measured it before also.

Keep in mind that - in the unlikely case that a storage facility allows you to work there - clearance inside the building may be substantially greater than clearance through the doorway. A margin for error or for later equipment changes is good, but it would be unfortunate to eliminate a good storage candidate due to a door which would fit the trailer safely but not meet some arbitrary standard for extra space.

Good info. The Maxxfan is what, 6" above the roofline? That's only a few inches more for the A/C. Of course the roof is not flat so it matters where stuff is on the roof; for instance, the MaxxFan is up on top, while the refrigerator vent is down on lower step.

and the Jack antenna is just as high as the a/c shroud.

I posted this in a previous discussion on the 2017 - 19'
-Air Conditioner 108" (2.74m)
-Jack Antenna 105" (2.67m)
-MaxxAir Vent 102" (2.59m) WHEN CLOSED. Taller when open.
-Fiberglass Roof 96" (2.44m)

These are the heights if the trailer is level. If there are dips or steep angles on the driveway, the trailer will pitch up and down. Overhead garage doors will often hang lower than the opening and a 10' high garage door opening is never 10' tall: its always a bit less. Also take into account hitching. You need to raise the front of the trailer in order to unhitch.

As Dave says, you need to account for dips and slopes and more. Our 19' was approximately 20'2" in length with the spare tire. (We use 9 1/2' as a minimum clearance for our 21', for 21' owners with A/C.) I would add a few inches to the measurements you are given, which you seem to be doing. Looks as if you are on the right track.
