    May be easier to buy a trailer with a ramp already on it.

    by the time you pay for freight you could probably have one fabricated locally for the same price or less.

    i think you would be better to have awelding shop make you one to your specs. you could go with a half gate / spring assist etc etc ... you get the idea

    i have no idea it depends on your areas market for a welder.
    also what all you would want to have done. all you have to do is call a welder

    Probably a couple hunderd bucks, maybe a little more. Steel is at an all time high right now and is still going up. I built a small one that I mounted one on the side of my trailer a couple years ago for less than $100 in materials. The expanded metal is what cost the most.

    I have had that same question. I got a 7' wide trailer without a gate because it was good for the bobcat and that kind of stuff and I figured I would buy a gate for it. I never could find a 7' gate, everything was 6' or smaller. Ended up getting it fabricated so that the gate had the ramps for the Bobcat built in.
