Don't skimp on the support cables. Earlier this summer a friend of mine was standing on his ramp holding his grandbaby and the motorcycle tie-down straps he was using broke. He and the baby rolled down the ramp, but he held on and protected the kid all the way down. Could have been a disaster.

These ramps are a huge lever and put crazy stress on the supports.


My cables are factory.

But the toddler fence or xpens sounds like a temp fix until I find a good deal on rails.

My toy hauler did not have the anchors to secure the ramp door. Rather than drill the trailer, I used tall jack stands with rubber bumpers to hold the ramp level. The comment about additional steel plates being required may be for those cable anchors I lacked.

If you can drag the standred pinic table bench that are at most campgrounds and use a 5 ft" 4X4 you can lower your ramp onto the seating area on the beach and wamo you have your patio deck.

Trying the above for me was always the Goldilocks experience - It was either too high or too low.
