5.0TA Exterior Height

I've contacted ETI about this and am awaiting an answer but in the meantime . . .

The Escape website lists the exterior height as 9'7". Does this include the optional AC unit? Also, how much height does the optional Jack antenna add?

Reason for asking is that I am gathering quotes for a RV storage garage and am wondering if a 10' high roll-up door will be adequate?

The air conditioning unit is no higher than the loft, but if you have a TV antenna it will be above 10 ft. Without a TV antenna a 10-foot door will work just fine.

We are building a pole barn to store our new trailer .
Originally I also was planning on going with a 10 ft door but after posting on this forum I was
convinced that a 12 ft door was the way to go
The difference in build cost was only $1400 and eliminated the concern about the trailer fitting through the door .
Once a structure is built going back to modify the door height is an expensive proposition

One of the issues with living inside city limits is that we just can't have a wonderful size building like that. Even to go with a 10-foot door which means 11-foot ceiling minimum, a relaxation is required as 10 foot is the highest allowed by bylaw.

I laid down a big lodge pole pine when I worked for the forest service that was 110 feet to a six inch top. They used it for a radio antenna tower. They hired a high climber out of the Selway Bar in Kooskia, Idaho to do the rigging and final adjustments once we got it in the hole. That was in the summer of 1969. A few days later the astronauts landed on the moon and a national holiday was proclaimed. We were so far out in the boonies we did not hear about the day off till the next day. Pole timber is straight and increasingly hard to come by in the States.

Yeppers, city living means more taxes and more restrictions.....
