I have the same set up made. I already had all the shorter ones for my other non tag coach. Had to make the Longer ones for the tag. My front ramps have 4 layers and the rear has 2 to compensate for the slope of my parking pad with full hookup and sewer.

I would add two more 2x boards for more height in the rear. Maybe you're thinner than I am.
There is no need to support the tag axle - unless you want to. It can hang and wont damage anything.

Best to support both duals vs putting total rear wt on just the outer!

Looks good. I use a 3 stack for my ramps also. They work well for me.

the carrying handles on the sides are a nice touch.

I built a four stack for mine that gets it 6" up but they are heavy. I do like the idea of the handles.

They are heavy, going to add rollers on the end of the long ones so you can tip them up and push them around instead of picking up all the weight

I cut 6 pieces of 2”x2” 1/4” square steel tube 10” long as support between frame and suspension. Air up, place supports, lower down. That with the ramps gives me plenty of room to roll around.

Thanks for the size for the steel pieces. Wanted to do that so I can do a Air Spring change as well

That is exactly what I made them for. But now use the any time I am going under the coach. Just ordered 10 new shocks for next weekend project.
