Ramp is quite steep so can't load the trike with the ramp as it is - the exhausts will ground out. Spent quite a bit of time to figure out what I consider the best solution and ended up buying some race ramps (see raceramps.com). I bought a pair of these.....


Then I use a set of lynx leveling blocks to build a little ramp for the front wheel to go up (otherwise there is about a 5inch step up for the front wheel on to the ramp)

Works perfectly. Still took a little while to get used to the steepness of the ramp but after a few times I'm now in and out in a flash.

Hope that helps
Dave

Great. That is exactly what I need. A driving toy hauler. Now I know where to look.

Do you think these ramps could be used for leveling the MH @ the CG?
Are they built pretty well?

They are built well for their intended purpose, manufacturers website says they are rated to 6,000lbs load so not sure I would want to drive a motorhome on them.

More info Trailer Ramps 7 Inch with Flap Loading Ramp if you want to check it out further
