      I got tired of poking my hands on the previous owner's jury-rigged trailer ramp.

      So...instead of modifying that old POS, I learned from my past mistakes....I am making a new one from scratch.

      The tail piece will be on a hinge type system and fold back over the main portion of the ramp. My entire driveway is concrete so in order to keep from having to get a running start and launch into the trailer. A bad combination with a 54" roof line. LOL

      Here is the old POS ramp. It is made from 1/4" aluminum angle and square tubing. The rest is 3/4" plywood. When it gets wet, (even dry) it weighs a ton and is very awkward when trying to move, especially with the screws sticking out the bottom of the wood.



      Here is the layout of the new ramp. I do need to make the swivel for the base unit and get another set of plastic runners.







      Here are the flap I have. They are hinged and drop over the edge of the deck to prevent tearing the corners up:

          I thank you! LOL

          With the weather at over 60* today. I got a chance to finish the decals on the trailer today. I also got the front sealed up.

          Tomorrow I am off and will be getting the ramp all trimmed and fit together for tigging.

          Here she is with all the decals and all cleaned up and ready for snow:

                  I got the ramp TIG'd and MIG'd. It is done up and almost ready to roll.

                  All I have left to do is rivet the runners in place and put the chain links on.

                  Here is the main ramp:



                  Here is the runway leading to the ramp:



                  Here is the unit as it lays out:



                  Here is how the runners layout on the ramp:

                    I got this chain at an auction last summer. It was in a box I bought for a buck. LOL:



                    This is how it will stow under the trailer:

                      Wow really nice work Maize!! I loved reading thru this post. Your passion and detail are VERY obvious. The whole thread was written soooo well. I further enjoyed reading it in a half hour, instead of "waiting" for the next post/installation. Its great to have peeps in the know to help out and reduce the cost. I am really impressed. Talk about giving that trailer a new lease on road life., and the extra's you installed...WOW.
