Height of pro 550 with A frame

Hi. I am about to build a boat house for my zodiac pro 9 500. However the wife does not know this but I hope to upgrade in the next two years to a pro 550.

So I can make sure I have enough door frame height for the bigger boat could someone please tell me the maximum height of a pro 550 with a A frame and on a trailer.

Thanks for your help it is much appreciated.

That would depend on the trailer setup. Mine is on a heavy duty trailer with 15 inch wheels and big tyres to give good ground clearance for some of the 4x4 destinations I head too.

The roller setup can be different also on many trailers, some people prefer teflon skids as runners which can lower the height. With 13 in low profile tyres and skids will lowere the trailer by quite an amount.

The centre console on mine is slightly higher than the A frame which has rod holders fitted and with the jockey wheel almost completely down it just clears my garage doors at 2.1m.

Thanks Jon. That is great info. I think I'll go for about 2.2m which should mean I have no problems.
