    Got the pup in new garage. BUT I had to remove the spare and cut the rear bumper off!! Still need to slide it sideways 18 inches but for now, it and my Jeep are in the garage at night. 20191104_143052.jpg 20191104_143117.jpg 20191104_145321.jpg

    Reminds me of a saying about two pounds of something in a one pound bag.

    I'm designing my next house now. It will have 3 car garage. All 3 will be oversized and extra deep.

    I built a garage two cars wide by two cars deep almost 20 years ago. Wish it was bigger now.

    Isn't that always the case
    I want to be able to pull in a Suburban, 3/4 ton truck and a trailer with room to spare. I have some good plans, just trying to find that budget now.....

    Bummer about the bumper too. How much did the bumper protrude past the tire bracket? My gotta make it fit mind would want to know if I left the bumper on, attached a 1/4" rubber bump stop on the wall, and gently (with a spotter ;o) snugged the bumper against the wall. I would think about cutting 1/2" off the front of the hitch too. ;o)

    Oh, but how much trouble to shorten the bumper mounts?
    Anyway, kudos to making it fit! :eek:)

    The rear bumper is definitely easier than shorting the tongue. It took about 1 minute total with a sawsall. I'll end up drilling a few holes and putting some flat stock on each side to re-attach it this spring.

    It looks like a tight fit :) I had a friend that bought a large MH, he called me on his way home ans was scared that it might not fit in the garage, we put a ball on a string as a way to remind him to stop, then bubble wrap on the garage rear wall he only had 1/2 inch left but it did fit.
