    I would like to get the members ideas, opinions, height in inches on the door opening of their enclosed trailers.
    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    I only know the height of mine and it is 72 inches. Not sure of the width. My trailer is actually a car hauler, the door is rated at 4500 lbs. Not sure of the side door height either. Any other info you looking for? Why are you asking?

    I hope you have better luck than I did trying to get door opening widths.

    6' 8" I believe is the extended height "standard" for most trailers. "I'd use it".
    We had one of our 6'5" workers fly into the trailer "on the velky". No need to say he needed all of the height. No need to say if he didn't clear how the trailer would have looked:hammerhead:

    Remember the type of employee that will be using the trailer:dizzy: :dizzy:
    You don't need a law suit that's not your fault.
