Bi-Folding Ramps For Trailer
We came up with a set of bi-folding ramps for our trailer that work a lot better than full-length ramps. The problem was that when we folded the full-length ramps straight up after loading, the wind would catch them when we were driving. So we cut the ramps exactly in half and installed hinges to allow them to fold. To reinforce them at the hinge point, we made a couple supports out of plywood. They fasten to the ramps just ahead of the hinge point.
    Another modification we made was to add strips of rubber tire tread to the ends of the ramps. Gives the wheels a good grip as they head up the ramp. (Don Huber, 721 School St., Nokomis, Ill. 62075 ph 217 563-8649)
