    I just rented a one way load out trailer rental, its a 53 UPS roll door trailer. Does anyone know my height? The broker I rented it with doesn't know.

    Should be 13’4” - 13’6” depending on fifth wheel height and wheel size.

    If you asking about the door opening height?
    On a 13’-6” trailer it should be around 102” fully open. It is usually 6” shorter than swing doors to give room for the springs, drums and door when up.

    It should say height on the front of the trailer. If not, take a pic.

    Load weight can squat that down even more. Curious if the OP is asking about the height of cargo space, or height of the entire unit. Additional info will change the context of their question.

    Trailer heights are almost always posted. I would guess he is asking about the door opening.

    110 inches is the standard I believe
