Enclose Trailer: Has anyone ever converted the swinging doors to a ramp door?

Hey lawnsite community. Something I've been thinking about for a while now but don't know if its worth it. Here is the scenario:

My operation is expanding. I have a continental cargo 7 x 12 double axle enclosed trailer that I am going to use It is in decent shape but part of the back steel bumper has rusted out and the back doors are pretty beat up. They will need some serious fixing to be in good working order again. I am wondering if anyone has ever converted the swing open style door to a ramp door before? I am probably going to go for it once it gets a little warmer out, I will post pictures as I go. I don't really want to just use ramps since I will have to put a decent amount into fixing the doors anyways, it seems as if it might just make more sense to build the ramp door since I plan to use the trailer for a while. I got the trailer for free from my dad. He used to use it for work but no longer has any use for it and it just sits so.. I thought it could be useful to me. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks Fellas
