When I moved my -7A I measured that I needed 91” clear open to fit the fuselage in a trailer. That’s a measurement outside to outside of the axle nuts.

Ok thanks for that measurement. That's about 2.3m, I have 2.36m to work with...phew!��
I have access to a 7 but wasn't sure if the A had the same wheel track.
