    Just wondering if that would fit in a standard size garage. Also hope the pisser is dead center so you could stand while going.:)
    Sorry I could offer no advice..........Good Luck and let us know how it works out for you. Have been looking for a teardrop myself for garaging.

    Rellik01,

    I am 6' and when I walked around inside I never felt like I had to bend over when next to the bed or the eating area. As for sitting next to the roof at the table you don't stand up there anyway so I don't think it would be uncomfortable. As for a port-a-potty my rules would be who ever used it would have to clean it. I doubt it would get much use. :D

    As for fitting in a normal garage my Taco double cab with short bed is 17.5' and I can walk in front of it with the garage door closed. If you read the spec sheet it says it is 17'1", but the next time I look at it I will put a tape to it.

    Just got back from the dealer where I measured one and it measured about 17'3" bumper to end of ball coupler. Now I am sure it will fit in my garage.

    PS: I just hope I can get the price down. :confused:

    Rellik01,

    Be sure to measure how high the teardrop is to be sure it will get in your garage and not hit your entrance.

    An interesting alternative (and way less expensice) is the teardrop. I have one from TC Teardrops (tcteardrops.com). They're way less expensive than they should be, and they'll match the powder coating to your Tacoma.
