I was looking at an '05 or '06 Malibu VLX or other similar wakeboard boat but worried about storage and garage height. Do any of you put them in a 7 foot garage? If so which towers fit. Thanks

Brad,

Also keep an eye on width too. I tuck my 04 VLX (skylon Swoop Tower) into a 7 Foot garage. I have to remove the boat guides on the side of the trailer, then I only have ~3 inches on each side of the wheel wells. I have about 2 vertical inches for the tower to clear. Finally, I have about 5 inches of depth left over after swinging the tongue. It's a tight squeeze, and sometimes I get the boat stuck in the garage for 15 minutes while I maneuver the truck back and forth to get it out.

They increased the width from 04 to 05 on the VLXs.

But, it beats leaving it outside.

Thanks, the garage is ten feet wide and 25 feet deep, just wasn't thinking about the height, only 7 feet, when it was built. Glad to hear an 04 fits. I know the 05's and 06's are wider and I'm guessing sit up high on the trailer.
