I measured 13 feet from top of Maxx Airs. Forget the spec nothing beats a ruler.

Mine all hooked up is 13'5".. ( rounded up )

Used a 7' level on top of AC shrouds extended over the side and tape to the ground

**ON EDIT **

The brochure for mine states the external height to top of AC as 13'6"...
It WAS 13'3" hooked up and level till I added the Morryde IS, they added a 2" sub-frame and I am now at the number listed first.

I haven't been able to get a good measurement on mine, since my head is buried in the sand.

So does it measure taller or shorter than the specs?

Unreal that you have a 6" difference. What do you think it is?
