    You have no idea how happy you just made me haha :). Numbers don't lie and had my bow to stern measurements at about 235 inches roughly 19.6 ft, this is one of those things where seeing is believing!

    Just be sure your door height is high enough. It seems that's where most people have problems.

    Thanks a lot, I was more concerned about the depth than the height! There's not much you can do about depth but about height there are options as per the video, thanks for sharing, I'm still holding my breath until I see it inside with the garage door closed ... Mine is a 2015 so I'm not sure the fix on the video will be the same as for the tower, on the 2015 it folds backwards.

    Door height is standard at 7 ft, will have to do some tricks to lower it a few inches ... have seen some like putting the trailer on dollies and the front on a floor jack

    It will fit fine in a 20' deep garage. Mine is at 19'2" from rear of the swim platform with the trailer tongue folded. The tip of my bow is at the same point/plane where the tongue folds.

    Thanks so much for the pictures, I'm very much relieved to see your pictures! The height will be the next challenge, door is 7 ft and I measured a similar 2015 ar192 at the dealership with the tower collapsed at 7 ft 4 in give or take an inch, this will be the next challenge, wish me luck and if any tricks on lowering the height of the boat please pass along, will greatly appreciate this :)

    Thanks so much for all this information, my ar192 is a 2015 so the tower folds backwards leaving the highest point of the boat at exactly where it folds back near the windshield. I measured this point at the dealership and it is roughly 7ft 4 in tall. Hope I can pull some tricks to lower it further

    Ah for some reason I was thinking you were boat shopping. I didn't realize you already had a 2015 model with the older style tower, so my apologies for any confusion. When you measured at the dealer was the jack or trailer level? If so you can pick up a few inches by lowering the jack all the way.

    It wasn't all the way down, it was about half way down. I figure I can gain 2 or 3 inches there. The rest i figure will be about either using dollies and a floor jack and or a very low trailer hitch on the truck, I guess! Thanks so much again!

    A 5" drop hitch will for sure be easier than a dolly or caster wheel and pushing it in especially if you have a lip on your garage floor. I tried both at one time bit I just push mine instead. I think you can get it in.

    Thanks a lot, I'm gonna go for a 5 or 7 inch drop hitch, my trucks hitch currently sits at 10 inches from the ground!

    I have to lower it to almost bottomed out on the jack to get it in with my tower folded in. Trailer wheels are on and no deflating or any of that.
