    Hi all, I'm wondering if anybody with a 2015 or newer 24 footer knows the on-trailer dimensions of the boat and trailer together. I'm house hunting, and I'm exploring the possibility of storing my 2015 AR240 in the garage.
    If you don't know for sure, I'm even accepting best guesses. My best guess is that with tongue folded, the length is about 27 feet, width (outer edge of wheels) 8.5 feet, height (tower folded) 10 feet.
    I know, I should have measured before getting on the plane.
    Thanks.

    I think 27 feet is too long.. my 23 footer is but we purchased an aluminum trailer that has a long tounge on it... it is about 27 feet long... if u have the normal trailer with the folding tounge it had to be shorter than mine is.

    @MrMoose Not so bad, actually. Comes UNDER 24 feet in length, I was surprised!
    Measured both ways, but of course there is some wiggle room. I do the 5mph hard stop when loading on the trailer, that maybe worth 6in, and without a vertical plane on either side it's a bit of a guess where to place the tape, etc. But I think conservatively speaking it is just under 24'.

    I fully anticipated you would want to see pics:

    Thanks @swatski !!!!!!!!!!
    Ok, now how about the width and your guess at height with tower folded?
    Do you think that the trailer wheels align with the beam of the boat (8'6") or do they stick out a bit (i.e. maybe 9 or 9.5')?

    The wheels do not stick out much beyond the beam, maybe a couple of inches at the most:
    upload_2016-11-26_10-41-42.png upload_2016-11-26_10-42-14.png

    And it is about (or a tad over) 8'6":

    The height is a wild guess (as my tower is up), but I would guess it should fit under 9' folded, the tape in the pic sticks up about 2' over the windshield (where it crosses). The tape is extended to 9':

    From the Yamaha app on my phone. Course real life might be a little different than the specs. :)
