    You could go with a longer ramp like a 4ft or 5ft. I'm guessing your current one is a 3ft otherwise you have some bad angles going on with your hitch situation.

    Get one with a drop axle or raise your trailer hitch.

    That must be one crazy high trailer or you cut really low and adjust using only the caster fork spacers. Yes a dove would work but can you find one that small without going custom?

    The price seems fair as it's pretty rare at least here. Do a lot of guys use dove tails in your area? I've never seen a lawn trailer that was made that way here for just mowing operations.
