Enclosed trailer ramps?

    First off, just found this site.

    It's AWESOME!!!!

    Ok....if you've got an enclosed trailer and you don't have a ramp door, what are you guys using? Good ol' 2x10's (sounds scary) or are you forking over a couple of hundred bucks for some nice strong yet light aluminum ones?

    Right now all I have is a Craftsman 42", but will possibly be getting something bigger in the future.

    Seems like aluminum is the way to go, huh?

    So who has the best deals?

    Thanks in advance!

    I was in Lowe's the other day and seen some aluminum Ramps at reasonable price I can't remember what the price was but I do remember them being a fare price.

    Hey CNE - not a whole lot - getting my trailer ready to strike out on my own, I think. Putting shelves in today.

    My Dad lives in Wilson - I get through Smithfield (via 95) pretty often. He used to do business with a Honda dealer there. Can't remember the name. Been a long time - might have been a Lawn Boy dealer, actually.

    I'm working part time with a guy now - he's been doing it for years but doesn't even really try. He's been injured, so I can't blame him, but it seems like there's plenty of work here. We'll see.
