    Nice job on that trailer.

    If you aren't planning on it already I highly recommend switching to LED lights. They take so much hassle out of dealing with a trailer.

    Also you can make that ramp easier to lift by welding a pipe to the end of it and getting another piece of pipe you can slide into it to use as a lever, it will give you a lot more mechanical advantage when lifting the ramp. They do this with equipment trailers that have the super heavy duty ramps on them.

    Good 'striping' - looks like factory original!

    BigNick - don't suppose you have a picture/diagram of how the ramp leverage thing looks?

    I definitely plan on getting LEDs but the trailer is at a small stand still currently but we will get her finished. Slowly but surely!

    I looked around for about 10 minutes couldn't find one.

    It is really simple however, just a piece of pipe welded to the ramp that allows you to stick in another to use as a cheater bar.

    Would it be possible to draw out a picture for us? Where the pipe gets welded?
    I am also in the process of redoing an old trailer. Just got the old floor boards out yesterday. But I have a heavy ramp also and I am not sure I can lift it now by myself. (Old lady here. LOL)
    I would really like to see at least a hand drawing so I can see if hubby can build it for me.

    This ramp is a PIA to get up. It's super heavy
