I would agree whole heartedly with that statement.
Mine are 8' high, but at 9' wide, care is needed when putting my 3/4 ton with trailer mirrors in to the garage for working on it (can't keep it garaged in the second bay as the truck is too long for the interior length of the garage, plus I need space for my work table, welders/hydraulic press/tool boxes etc.).
Even with the mirrors pulled in all the way, there is still not a whole lot of wiggle room going through the door unless I fold them tight against the truck door, and I don't bother doing that.
