Cruisette in garage

Does anyone know whether one can fit a '51 cruisette in a standard home garage ( 7 ft door) if I take off he tires? No ac on top either. Thanks for any guidance.

How would you even get it into the garage with the tires off? Just curious.

Well from here: 1951Cruisette8000

It is top of vent to pavement of 8'4", so you need to get rid of 16" of height to fit in a standard garage. If your wheels are 14", and have approximately the same height relative to the trailer as in this photo: 1951Cruisette8007

...then I am going to say no. Looks like you are "short" by at least 5".

You also have to assume some height for the rollers that will get it in the garage, so no.

But find a place for the Cruisette. You got me reading about them for the first time and they look awesome!

Yeah, I didn't think so. I was just trying to figure out a way to save money and have quick access to work on her. I guess I'll keep her in storage. Thanks for the input!
