I'm after some new levelling ramps as the ones we have are Milenco Quattro's 3 and are far to large to store in our PVC so am looking for suggestions for smallish levelling ramps , but at the same time they have be able to be effective.
So suggestions for small levelling ramps for a PVC would be appreciated :)
PS the Van is 6.3 meters.

Hi.
Trial some bits of wood/off cuts They could be stored apart and dowel/connected as per height need. Worried about them moving as you start ? The old well known trick,bit of string on the leading front edge,drive/reverse up, string becomes trapped and your up and on. The biggest single piece could be used as a plate on soft ground to stop sinking. Win,win.

We use Maypole MP4601 leveling ramps with our 6 metre PVC. Not the highest but light weight and less than ÂŁ15 from Amazon. Only used a few times so far but they seem robust with no signs of cracking. We store ours under the seats in the rear lounge.

Do not think any ramps on sale at the moment are really up to the purpose. Milenco seem best but weak in that the tips bend over after a few uses, they are too narrow for most van tyres so if you are not exactly square the edges collapse and crush on one side. Hopefully someone, oneday, will invent a better product. When they do they will take over the market.

Ive been using Milenco Triples for 18 months and they're great, no cracks or splits etc and wouldn't be without them.

Fiamma ones a quite low we have the grey ones but on our second set in 7 years they do split. I have seen some yellow ramps that are even lower but dont know the make.

I used some Fiamma 'lego blocks' with my caravan since 2006, and now with my PVC. Fiamma discontinued them, unfortunately.

These Lynx branded ones, which were shipped from the USA by Amazon, seem to be identical to the Fiamma ones. So I've replaced a couple of broken top pieces. The Lynx ones seem very popular with American RV owners.

I wasn't charged any import fees - Amazon paid them as part of the price.

We have the milenco quattro ramps for our boxer pvc. As you say, they are very bulky. Greasy Chap Butty has a plan to make some way to store them under the van so they aren’t taking up valuable inside storage space.

I use Milenco and agree re size. I’ve had Fiamma ones and they are smaller but not really up to the job in my experience.

I received some Thule ones with the new van and they look good quality and a bit smaller. The dealer has a fleet of hire vans so presume he uses these in all the vehicles so should be robust enough for that purpose.

Thanks , these seem more like a sensible option than my Milenco Quattro's :) ill most likely order a set of these
