Does anyone know if a Wing Trike can be loaded in a Momentum 355 without any modifications?

It should it looks like the garage is 8'X12', so it will fit.

It's not so much how big it is, as how much it weighs. If it's like my Harleys it's pushing the boundary for weight..

Not sure the length or width is an issue, you just need to measure to confirm that. However some owners of other bikes bottom out when loading.

Yep, might not have enough ground clearance to get up the ramp without dragging the tail. Since its a trike you could use 3 short loading ramps (make your own out of 2 X 12's) to transition up on the ramp. You may also have to block up the ramp a little so it won't high center when you're rolling off the ramp into the garage. If your garage has a dovetail you might be ok without blocking up the ramp. By the way I used the wheel chocks to block up the ramp.

That is exactly my concern. There is a dove tail on top. The height of the ramp is 32 in. The length is 8 ft 7 in. Box is plenty wide and long....12 feet. Great idea on the wheel chocks

I did not know there was a weight issue. How long should the 2x12s be? The trike is about 1100 lbs.

I haul a goldwing and a 750 shadow. I bought a tri fold portable ramp put the rubber stoppers on 6x6 blocks. Both bikes don't bottom out. Good luck.

I have one of those ramps also, trike is too wide for it. I'd start with fairly long ramps just to be safe, and then cut them down as needed. Once you get them right you may need to add something to keep the wheels from slipping. A little water on that wood would be like ice. Also make sure you have leveled out before you load or unload, then your angles will be the same. If you don't have to raise the ramp up you might be able to get by with just 2 of the extra ramps, just let the front wheel ride up. Most of the toy hauler ramps are rated around 2500lbs, shouldn't be a problem with your trike. If you can winch up the first time to check clearances on everything it would be good, otherwise have someone watching and ease up in low gear.

I agree with Dwight the ramps are VERY slick when wet. I bought a 2 ft wide roll of non skid from 3m (self stick) installed in the sun on a hot day . Works great have loaded in the rain. Good luck.
