I have my eye on a used enclosed trailer on craigslist. It currently has barn doors. I'd need a ramp for my mowers. Anyone converted their trailer door like this? Maybe mount a ramp inside/ outside of the existing doors? Just asking for ideas. Thanks

Too much work for me imo. Unlocking and opening the barn doors, then to lower the gate. Might as well remove the barn doors altogether and install a expanded metal gate that covers the whole rear. You get security and ventilation.

could do that, and even put panel on the outer side to give it that 'enclosed' look. Other issue would be a spring assist- a big gate has to be pretty heavy

It's been done on here. They put the mesh gate on the outside

Wonder if there's a photo on here anywhere, might be helpful to see. At least someone else has been there before me!
