    Default My sled hauling setup, a Revarc ramp!

    Decided to go this route instead of a trailer for several reasons. I have no place to store a trailer at my house, I'm currently keeping one of my sleds and trailer at my buddy's house. I want to keep the sled in garage when not riding it. So, if I were to have a trailer, I would have to drive to my buddy's house, grab the trailer, drive back home and load the sled every time I would go riding. And vise versa at the end of the trip. Secondly, this is only $350 and nothing to maintain, lifetime warranty etc. Third, much better gas mileage with the sled in the back than towing a trailer. Fourth, I can do a little sideways driving action on the snowy roads and at the snow parks without a trailer attached. I can always hook up someone else's trailer or offload my sled and throw it on the other guy's trailer if space allows so we can truckpool.

    they are sweet!!! have used mine a couple of times already, love the fact you can just putt up and down. the best ramp i've ever used by far one tip i can give you, when you load the sled the track sits on the tongue of the ramp making it almost impossible to get the ramp off the tailgate if you're alone. i use a cut bed liner in my bed so the skis don't grab and mar up the bed. looks like you've got that part covered. i'm gonna mount a block of wood just in front of where the tongue of the ramp ends to hold up the track so i can get the ramp off easily alone...

    I was gonna ask about that. My ramp is a bit different, but when we put the sled in my truck at Pete's; the track held the ramp in place. Good thing there were two of us. When I got it home; I had a hell of a time getting the ramp secured under the track again. (Had to use my feet to scoot the ramp tongue back under while holding up the sled) A 15 inch 2X4 woulda' made all the difference

    I don't know, I have a Mountain Max, which is like the the lightest snowmobile ever made, so I'm sure I can just lift it up with one hand and grab the ramp with the other.

    You don't need a ramp for unloading, just yard it out. I normally grab the sled by the front bumper, walk it back until the skis rest on the tailgate, then jump down and grab the rear bumper then pull it the rest of the way out.

    I'm selling my tri-fold loading ramp if anyone needs one. Don't use it anymore. $100.

    I use the extra long tri fold from cabelas to load mine up. I put runners I made by cutting the sides out of those white nylon 4x4 covers for fences. Got it from the home depot. I put 1x2s in the middle for traction and have a rubber mat in the bed to protect it, believe it or not the mat stays put. It works real slick.

    Tri fold aluminum ramp
    I bought this ramp for loading and unloading my snowmobile from my trailer sits 1 foot off the ground I ran into an issue with it and hope others can offer some ideas to resolve this issue. When I try to back off the trailer or drive on the trailer the aluminium ladder pieces are snapping off ( only riveted on ) I'm looking at a nut and bolt to attach them on again need some advice to make this more solid to use. I was considering putting a piece of 3/4 plywood on top of it but then it's no longer foldable then I would appreciate any ideas of how to solve this issue. Looking forward hearing from you all.

    I resolved this issue by putting on plastic ski guides on each side of the loading ramp should solve my issue. Thanks for the help and suggestions resolving this issue.

    I've been sled less since the Mountain Max ate a piston. Found a bargain on an 03 King Cat 900 with 159" track last night so I'm back in. I sold this Rev-Arc ramp and now I need another or one like it. Hauling the sled in a van instead of a Tundra so not quite as tall. Looking to put ski guides on my tri fold ramp.

    Carb. Runs great on the trails, bogs while carving or climbing hills in the powder. Super frustrating. Went from 370 to 360 to 350 main jets and it's a little more crisp now but still bogs. Finding lot's of hearsay on the internet regarding fixes but nothing definitive.
