Basecamp X in a 9' Garage Door

I have the 2020 Basecamp X and am interested in putting in a 9' garage door so I can store it at home. The docs say it is 9' tall. I have measured it, and it seems clear that is to the top of the AC unit when level. But the angle of the AC unit makes it appear that if I lowered the tongue so the AC is parallel to the ground I can reduce the height 2-3", which might make it fit inside a 9' garage door. I'm thinking of a drop hitch solely for the purpose of parking, or perhaps a powered dolly or dual-wheeled trailer jack capable of pushing the lighter Basecamp weight into place if dropped just outside the garage door. Has anyone with a Basecamp X parked it with a 9' garage door? I know letting some air out of tires might also work, but would rather use that as my insurance policy before I build. Any feedback or suggestions?

Do you have an actual verified-in-field dimension from the garage floor to the lowest point of the garage door when opened, including its bottom weatherstripping? This actual dimension can vary widely for a generic "9' door" IMO.

Good luck,
