Exact height of E19 with Air Con?

Does anyone know the exact (or near exact) height of a 2nd generation (2017 or newer) Escape 19' with Air Condition. Please specify if you have the high axle lift or not, as I understand that will add 3" too. I am trying to build a carport for my new E19 that is on order! Thanks

Thanks. Sounds like if I build to 9' 10" (including high lift axle) I should have enough clearance. Any others have a different measurement?

I've seen 9' posted w/ A/C and no high lift for the 2nd gen 19, but 9'-6" is a safe bet. Don't cut it too close. Give yourself some extra space above to account for any approach angle (if that applies) and to give yourself the ability to do things on the roof while still covered (waxing, checking caulk, etc.)

19 Trailer Height?

Just wondering, then I’ll leave you alone and get back to tending my own sheep.

1) How wide will it be?
2) will the roof be flat or pitched? If you are using trusses, what style?
3) is there a code restriction that limits the height?
4) will there be provisions to allow it to be enclosed should you ever desire?
5) design provisions , and adequate height, for a future overhead door should you ever want one?
6) is it feasible to make provisions for you to dump the holding tanks? All that takes is a 4” line attached to the existing system. This is super convenient.

These issues are readily, and fairly inexpensively, resolved up front rather than later on.

Enjoy your project.

Ed

We have the high lift axle and air conditioning. Escape Industries told us just under 9ft 6 in. We built the carport to 10 ft. It really is 9 ft 6 inches.

Thanks everyone for the info - sounds like 9' 6" is the answer.

Ed: I am thinking to build a simple wooden structure with a flat "shed style" roof made of corrugated metal. Total materials cost of about $1000 and construction time of 8-10 hours. It will be 12' wide (as wide as my driveway). Because it is in my front yard, I have to make it somewhat portable, so no walls and a low as possible. Great thought though on the ability to dump the tanks if it was feasible!

We installed the attached portable garage structure below. 12 ft wide, door opening 10 ft wide, opens to an honest 10 ft tall, 20 ft long, and around 13 ft tall. The frame is approx 3 inch diameter tubes, think there were 6 of them, braced by 1 inch tubes longitudinal. The vinyl cover is replaceable, it survived it's first winter with 24 inch of heavy snow. Cost about $1500.

Super plan.

If feasible, burying a 1" conduit to run a 30 amp service to the temporary structure would be a helpful feature.

Enjoy
