    I want to get a 14 foot trailer in the future, but not sure if it will fit into my garage. Does anyone know the total length from back to the front coupler. I currently just have a 10 footer and there is a lot of room, so I think it would fit with just the extra 4 foot. I just wasn't sure if the tounge would be a lot longer.

    Add 3 to 4 feet for the tounge to whatever legnth trailer you have....so a 14ft trailer should be about 17 to 18 feet long total.

    Not to sound like a @ZZ but why don't you just measure the depth and width of your garage and then measure the trailer your looking at to see if it would fit.

    Most manufacturers list specs online. So as mentioned, some easy measurements will tell you if it'll fit or not. Personally, I wouldn't park a large trailer in my garage, I'd rather park it in the backyard, tarp it down when not in use and chain the wheels together.
