    I have a 18' ft trailer. Even on level ground it is hard to load and unload my walker mower. Should I get a taller ramp so the angle is better or any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    if you have a reciever type hitch, flip the insert to raise the front of the trailer, I had to do that with mine, amazing what 2 inches higher on the tounge can do for the angle at the rear.
