The door opening is nominally 10’0″. The measured height from the door opening to the bottom on the door, not including the soft gasket, was 9’11”. The door always had a few inches below it (an inch or so below the gasket), making the opening about 10’2″. I dug out some more space prior to receiving the van to have a total clearance now of about 10’7″. This does not take in to account any snow/ice build up, nor any frost heaving. But I’m fairly certain it’ll fit without a problem. Any permanent solution, such as increasing the door opening a few inches at the top or having a sloped pad at the bottom with an extended door, will be addressed later if necessary.
