    Rather than hijack other threads, I have noticed that a lot of Hydra Trail owners are now using ramps in favour of using the jack etc.
    I already have a folding ramp, but the three prongs are wider than the Hydra Trail bed.
    Please could you post some pictures of how you attach the ramp to it. I have my own ideas, but they tend to be a bit agricultural in design and not very elegant.

    Thank you,

    Vic

    Drill two holes in the end of the ramp in a suitable place that would line up on the hydra.

    Bolt a bolt into place in each hole with stiff nuts long enough to go into the hydra bed.

    Drill clearance holes in hydra bed for bolts to fit into.

    Stand back and admire :)

    Thank you. I thought about that, but the ramp I have is wider than the Hydratail bed.
    The ramp also has three prongs and only two can fit inside the bed. Using just the two makes loading unstable. I have seen somewhere a section of square box tubing bolted to the outside of the Hydratrail bed, but cannot find it.
