Figure 10' for planning purposes. If it's close you should measure the actual trailer.

The clearance on my 2010 classic was supposedly 9' 7.5" when new, and that's with low-profile A/C. Most trailers are very close to this. Tires, axles, and differences in air conditioner height can each lead to changes of a few inches. Low profile A/C is 9.5" high. Standard is 12.75". You can lose half an inch if there's a double gasket.

It's difficult to measure clearance accurately, and even if you do, suspension travel, hitch height, and uneven ground can cause you to hit stuff that the clearance measurement says you would miss. Be careful.

For what it is worth, my 12' x 14' garage door is set to open only to 10' - 1" and the 2015 Serenity 30 RB with two A/C units goes in with what looks like about four or five inches of clearance. This is from a level drive to level garage.
