    Raggdoll, one option is to put a thin sheet of 1/4 inch plywood on top of your roof, it will act like a shoehorn as you load or unload. The plywood will make contact with the edge of the trailer door and slide along your roof as it goes. Worst case will be a rub mark from the plywood, but no gouge marks from the trailer itself. Have I tried this myself?NO, but I will if it's a very tight, within an inch type of fit.

    Anyone have pictures of their Wolverine going into and enclosed trailer with a 72" high rear opening? I have a need for an enclosed trailer for work and I may as well get one the Wolvie fits into. I'm thinking I will need to go with a barn door style trailer so I can make a steeper ramp and get the clearance for the high point at the rear of the roof. I was hoping to go with a 6'6" trailer so I know it will fit once inside - I just need to know it will go in the door.

    Aluma sells trailers that get taller by 3" increments (mine is 6'6"). The dealer in Mountain Lake MN is stocking dealer and nice guy. I put my YXZ in a 7' wide trailer ( https://www.alumaklm.com/enclosed-tr...losed-trailers ) , but I Winch in & Push out cause too tight to open doors. Not a big deal. I also mounted stop blocks ( https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...4356_200594356) on floor and tie down over the tires with D-Rings in Floor with (https://www.etrailer.com/Tie-Down-An...n/EM09160.html) on rear wheels. Use winch from YXZ to pull in with remote hand control (motor Running).

    If you budget or garage door opening does not fit a taller Aluminum Trailer, Big Horn makes a steel trailer with drop angle at opening (2018 RM Manufacturing EC 7 12 TA (CONTRACTOR GRADE) Enclosed Cargo Trailer-CO SPRINGS | Reed Trailer Sales | Your Nebraska and Colorado Trailer Dealer | Find flatbed, utility, and dump trailers) (increases opening but still standard ceiling height, may have to ask about it) I know they sell in Nebraska & Colorado but assume other parts of country. Not as nice as Aluma, but much more affordable.

    Just some options. I have vee front and have a 15 gallon fuel caddy mounted there so can fuel up when I choose. (https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...5161_200325161) they make better ones out there, but with a coupon is reasonable and don't have to screw with cans or unloading to fill unit at station.

    I also mounted a backup camera on trailer so I can see traffic coming up behind me (https://www.amazon.com/Camecho-Wirel...n%3A2888782011 )

    Shorter the ramp the sharper the breakover angle to sneak top under header. A couple of treated 2x blocks under trailer tires raises trailer for a sharper angle. Can also lower ramp mount below door for a 'curb' effect that gets top in before rear comes up.
    If you were using a barn door trailer you might be able to load it with a couple of those plastic ramps for oil changes. Should not be any prob to climb over a few inches of difference between ramp and door threshold height.

    I am going through this right now. The solution is to air down the rear tires and inside the trailer put two truck ramps back to back. I have 28" blackwaters and I can get the X4 inside the trailer

    I'll post pics of the set up tomorrow if you're interested
