Door height(s)?

If you were designing a new storage area for your (momentarily) parked Airstream, what size door(s) would you use? 10' tall or 12'? Ideas? Is there a universal minimum for Airstreams?
Thanks.

I had a 1976 Overlander that JUST made it in a 10 ft. door. If given the option, I would put in a 12 ft. door.

Depends on the condition of the axles.

If they are bad, 10 feet would do.

If the axles are good, you will need a higher door opening.

It's not just the trailer, but antenna's, AC's, special vents, etc.

Today... all but shot. To be replaced in the near future. Sounds like 12' tall is the best bet.

How tall did the A/S motorhomes top out?
