There was no choosing about it, If it was to be ordered I would have got ramps probably on both sides, but this was in stock and took it. I will rarely use the front ramp for unloading my 48" w/b, only have 2 yards that I need it on, and one client has'nt confirm me on cutting this year, I can put my z's just about anywhere I can the W/B. Yes I wanted a curb side door, and I asked, why the road side, dealer said cuz of the possibility of a snowbank, you would'nt be able to put the ramp down or it would be ****-eyed. I will use a cone and be pretty careful about that when and if I use it. But this is a multi purpose trailer, racing team, and quad hauler In which that front ramp will work great.
