Default Tiger length help

Looking at property to build a retirement home and thinking a tiger might be in my future. What size shop would be needed to get one inside on a drive guard trailer and have room to work around it?

I built a 28x60 garage for my tiger and have 5 feet in front and in back but I do not have the drive guard.
Total length on trailer including my drives is 48'

Thanks--dealing with a 1600 sq ft limit without jumping through hoops or looking far enough out of town to be zoned agricultural.

I just bought a condemned home up the street from me because when I measured the detached garage out back it was 47' 8" long. The tiger on the trailer is 47'1". I assumed it was meant to be so I bought the place. It also has a 16 or 18 inch I Beam across the top of it which I just hung a trolley and chainfall on which I'll unfortunately be putting to use tomorrow to pull an engine - again, it was just meant to be.

New question guys.

Looking at a house that has a "bridge" to go under to get to the shop--what height do you have on a trailer?


Thanks--Dave

It's a 10 hour drive to see it in person but I have family in the area-- Judging by a standard door being 7 foot I'm guessing approximately 10 ft high by 10-1/2-11 foot wide. The downspouts could be relocated and I could fall out the door until we get used to the layout--raising the roof???

A SWAG would be very helpful!

Can't help you until i put it on the trailer. Unfortunately that might be Sunday since there is a hurricane running up the coast. I'll measure it then.....
