I have a 20' Hallmark enclosed trailer. the rear door has an opening height of 6'4". can I load a 1927 Model t Touring without taking the top down?

Just went to the shop to measure mine, with 21" wood spoke wheels it measures 6'3" or 75 inches, so it would be tight. I would put the top down to be safe. Also the widest part I think is the front axle, it measures 67 inches from outside edge of hubcaps. Hope this helps.

Thank you Alex, that is exactly what I needed to know.

Just watch out if you have a beaver tail ramp because at the angle you enter the trailer the height may be a couple of inches more than on level ground. My 1930 Plymouth coupe is 3" shorter than the height of my trailer door but I have to raise the front of the trailer so the ramp and trailer floor are at the same angle to get the car inside.

Had not thought of raising the front of the trailer. thanks Val. I have a 23 but may purchase a 27 touring that is about 300 miles from me. I know an open trailer is not good on the top.
