the center is unsupported when half of my 1200# Prowler is loading. How many large people will be on it?

My wife and I just signed for a voltage 3200 with the rear door patio option. A rep. from Dutchman explained that the rear doors on the voltages with the patio option are made differently from those without the option. You may want to check with the manufacturer before adding a patio kit.

I made one last spring and we love it. I was afraid to do the cable support thing because most ramps are rated for a support across the entire contact of the ramp and with the cables, the center would be unsupported. as an alternative, we bought these BAL C-Series Jackand fastened to a wooden "I" beam made out of a 2x4 and a couple of 1x4's. This supports the ramp across the entire width. Next I made the railings out of pvc electrical conduit which I painted white and the fabric out of a dog kennel mesh sun shade. I did not want to drill holes in the ramp for fear of water infiltration. My solution was to use a 1x4 base for the railings which is simply "C" clamped in place. I made a stair way up to the ramp and have now built a canopy over the top. All of this will fit easily in the garage with room to haul an atv, bicycle and scooter which I have done many times.

I am sure that this would be much easier to understand with pics but unfortunately, I have not taken any. I will be happy to do so and share when the weather warms a little (2 degrees right now).


Great minds think alike. Hadn't thought of using PVC, excellent idea, thanks. I am doing mine mostly to give the dogs an area confined, and not locked up inside when we're off riding. My thoughts were using just heavy fiberglas screening into the 'railings' and I was going to cut some 4" PVC pipe to the right length for legs and support from under the ramp

Remember to build in some way of adjusting the supports. Not all campsites are level.

I've seen people use jack stands on either end with a piece of plastic protecting the ramp. http://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-aluminum-jack-stands-91760.html#.UxiRBT9dWVM

MOD'S EDIT (7/19/16): Closing this old thread. There's nothing wrong with the thread, but threads over a year old are supposed to be closed with no new posts.
