Overall & Net Interior Heights

Overall Trailer Height

Overall trailer height is the sum of the trailer’s max interior height, that model’s deck height, plus the tallest option installed on the roof.

Trailer Option Added Height
Ventline Roof Vent +5″ (Closed)
RV Vent Cover +10″
Ladder Rack +11″
Air Conditioner +14″

Example: Our CON714 has a deck height of 23″. With a 6’6″ max interior height (78″) and roof racks (11″) the overall height of the trailer will be 112″ (23″ + 78″ + 11″).

Please note that the overall height will change as weight is added into the trailer and starts to compress the suspension of the axles.

Max Interior Height

We measure all of our interior heights as a Maximum Interior Height. This means that if you’re buying a 6’6″ maximum interior height trailer you’ll have 6’6″ (78″) from the top of the floor to the bottom of the seamless roofing material. You will lose 2″ in net height where the roof cross members are and additionally will lose about another 1/2″ wherever the interior lights are located.

If you choose to add the finished ceiling option you will lose this 2″ throughout the trailer plus another .030″ for the finished ceiling material.

Rear Door Opening Height

The opening of the rear door of a trailer is LESS than the maximum interior height. All of our ramp doors (and cargo doors) are framed for with an aluminum tube above them as a header. A general rule of thumb for ramp door heights is 6″ less than the maximum interior height of the trailer. Note that front ramp doors and cargo doors are different. See the chart below for appropriate dimensions. As always please feel free to contact us with any questions.
