    If you have an enclosed trailer what are the dimensions of your ramp extension or ramp flap? I am building one but I have seen some that are 16 in and some that are 20 in long. I have a 7 ft wide trailer and probably going 5 ft wide which is just inside the outside of the door. I believe I also have to go with 3/4 in plywood.......correct?

    My enclosed is 7' wide and the ramp flap is prolly about 5 or maybe 5.5 wide, just a bit smaller than the ramp width itself. 20" seems big.
