    Thats right Dusty. I got a quote this spring of about $8k for that body. I decided to get an enclosed trailer instead.

    I purchased a used 24' straight truck and put on a cube van ramp from www.handyramp.com.

    This has worked as a floating warehouse on wheels with better maneuverability than a trailer.

    The ramp is 12' long with a center support leg that can be adjusted to provide a two angle entry point. With this feature, I have never had an mower bottom out. This truck in the photo is dock high. Anyway the ramp can be modified to suit your individual needs prior to taking delivery.

    WOW

    I could have 2 used NPR's and 2 decen't sized Z's for the price of an SLT alone.

    And I don't see anything going wrong with a simple dove tail and hinged ramp, just give'r a little grease and never worry about it failing.

    I have just purchased a 2000 Mitsubishi w/16' box and need to build a ramp. I couldn't actually find any pictures and may be doing something wrong but i would like to see what you have done. Are there any improvements you might add if you were to build it again?
