    Hi Guys...

    I have a trailer like this: http://www.gandmtrailers.com/ramps.jpg (with no ramps), and i'm looking to put ramps on my trailer that look VERY similar to the ones pictured. What would the best way be to mount these to the trailer? I want them to stand up when not in use like this: http://wellingtontrailers.com/siteimages/JDJ2968.jpg

    Right now they're just sitting on the trailer itself, it's such a pain to move them around, would like to make it 'one unit' so you just lower the ramps and drive the mowers up.

    Any suggestions?

    take a 3/4 pipe as long as the ramp and weld it to the ramp , use a 3/4 close nipple about 2 "long to weld to the trailer .get a piece of 5/8 all thread and use nylon lock nut's with washers on each end . you will have to have a heaver tab on the trailer and on each ramp to use a pin to hold them up . this is one way with out seaing it closer how it hook's on now . :usflag:
