Loading the trailer just got easier and safer

Postby Barnyard » Mon Jun 01, 2020 1:32 pm

The trailer I bought last year had some pretty hefty ramps with it. However, I'm an old guy so weight matters. I spent my stimulus check last week. I ordered these on Wednesday out of Wisconson and was called by the frieght company Friday saying they were in Cincinnati and would be delivered today. Quick shipping for sure.

10' Vs 8' gives less of a slope. Perforated finish means less chance of slippage in rain or snow. Easier to walk on also.

Easily locks into the side rail for loading a Cub sideways.

Cub weight means nothing.

Try moving these from under bed storage to side use very often.

A lot less strain on this old body.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Val, this is the style I liked because of the better traction. https://www.discountramps.com/ez-tracti ... P-HOOK-PP/

Thanks !!I did the same thing , ordered my ramps ( the ones i have now ) longer so it was not so steep , but being steel , the trade off is weight . I think as the steel ages , it gets heavier ! coppersmythe..................

Amen, Val, it must be oxidation (rust) accumulating on the steel.

Actually, gravity is getting stronger! I think the Russians are fiddling with Newton’s formulas. Or was that Copernicus? :D

I wish George Willer was still with us because he would have a mathematical formula to describe the change in weight over time, accurate to four decimal places.

I like the ramps, but on reading the caption I thought you had found a way to keep me from falling out the side of your trailer!!!! :D

John, you can still fall off, but at least I eliminated the trip hazard. :lol: Be thankful we all respected you enough that we did not get our smart phones out to snap pix of you on the ground that day.
