    If you have to use them do you:

    a. drive on to them
    b. reverse on to them

    I reverse on

    It depends. Sometimes I drive on other times I reverse on.

    I copy the Masons and park on the level.

    Don't need to drive onto ramps forwards or backwards.

    Depends on the circumstance at the time, but usually drive on.

    Same as you Scally
    IF it rained and the ground got a bit soggy I find it easier to put the anti slip mats ((Cut off of old bread basket ) in front and drive off just my way

    i drive on, seen some serious damage caused by reversing over the end and the ramps flipping up and taking a huge chunk out of a front bumper ( in laws Auotrail ).

    Do I presume when you reverse on you mean on to your rear axle not front? I would not fancy a quick getaway that involved driving the rear wheels over my ramps!! I always try to adjust the front as we have a twin rear axle and I am not sure whether to raise just one of the wheels or try to put the ramp under both (we have four wheels on single rear axle, not tandem). I would chose to drive forwards on but could reverse front axle on as we have plenty of clearance

    I also don't get this quick exit business, I rank it in with gassing (urban myth) IMHO, do you disconnect the electrics as well before you go to bed and I have to presume you don't use an external windscreen cover :Eeek:

    Well! being a Cornish/Kiwi and #1 All Black Supporter, I lift the front by the Bumper and Mrs R slips the Ramps in under, sometimes she even uses one of her loaves of bread she bakes, sometimes her handbag, horses for courses!:thumb:

    if you mean this...((Cut off of old bread basket ) then i dont see a problem posting it.

    i acquired four trays from a school kitchen i was working at (with permission) and by the time i cut off all four sides there was no identification as to the bakery left.

    no name...no claim.

    skip

    I found the bread tray in a skip so I think I am re-cycling not nicking.
    I don't really care which way you do it I just thought I'd put it on and see how the thread progressed.
    On an Aire/wild camping I rarely use ramps, always leave the windscreen clear and have the keys handy Just in case.
