Voltage V3805 Carry Miata

Need some help. Looking to purchase a V3805 with 14ft garage. My Miata meets the cargo and size capacity for the garage.

Mazda Specs:
Length: 12.8ft
Weight: 2332lbs

V3805 Specs:
Garage Length: 14ft
Cargo Capacity (lbs.) 3,482

Will the V3805 carry the car and will the ramp be okay to load the vehicle?

I think I would go and measure the 3805's garage. In theory you have 16 inches left to open the door to go inside the RV and/or the half bath. The doors open into the garage and I doubt it's a door that narrow.

I think the ramp capacity is 2500 lbs. and I regularly carry 2000+ lbs of cargo, so you should be OK. Leaving 1000 lbs for everything else you'll need to watch your fluid levels. My fresh tank holds 1280 lbs of water!!! Towing that much weight I would definitely upgrade to14 ply tire or 17.5 tires.

Another consideration I ran into along the lines of Sundancers post...
if you have the 3 season patio doors you'll need to knock 6 inches off the advertised garage length. With a 10 ft 4wheeler in my 12 ft garage I do not have enough room to open the inside doors.

Have fun with it!!!
