The more I think about it and that the dove tail at a angle is kinda wasted space since it is a real pita to store anything on it at a angle. I think I'm going to build mine with a hydraulic cylinder and hinged to let it down when loading and unloading and raise it when traveling. Plus wont have to worry about it bottoming out on dips. Still thinking it thru.

Well now the flatbed is all tacked together time for some serious welding then to fab up the dove tail. I found a power unit for the dovetail today but it has a bad solenoid valve soooo looking for another. Not sure how well a hydraulic dove tail is going to work but figured what the heck.
