OK, this might sound crazy, but here goes.....

Is there a trailer that's overall height is less than 7 feet while still having at least 6'3" interior height?
As I type this it seems ridiculous, but maybe it exists [emoticon]

Looking to find a small runabout for DW and I when we want to venture out instead of going to the RV lot we have.
Kicker is that it has to fit into my townhouse's garage.

Anyway,......discuss :

Is it 7' exactly? The reason I ask is the Aliner Ascape is 6'4" interior with a 7' 5" exterior height.

And Trailmanor, another fold out hard side trailer. Don't know the interior height.

Impossible. With 6'3" interior, you only have 9" left for the frame/floor, roof, and suspension/ground clearance under the frame.

Years ago RVision offered what they called a "garage model" - the tenting enclosed top section of the roof dropped down about 18" for travel & storage ...

These are rare here but common in Australia where they're called "poptops" ...

Thanks for all the replies.
I've seen some Hi Lo's locally and they look pretty cool.

I know the parameters I was looking for were pretty much impossible to achieve but thought there might be some old-timey unit out there that would fit the bill.

That 'garage model' is something I've never seen before.

Oooohh....just had a crazy thought: air-ride suspension. Low-rider for the garage and pump 'er up for the road [emoticon]
