why they don't use all Aluminium for the doors?

That appears to look like a seam in the anti slip coating to me and not a crack


Speaking of the anti slip coating which by the way is slippery when it gets wet. I slipped down ours the other day taking a bike out because it was wet and unfortunately the foot peg punched a hole in the ramp. it did not go through to the other side but there is a hole int he plywood. Wondering has anyone repaired a hole in the ramp before? My hole is about the size of a silver dollar. I was thinking about some spray foam to fill the void a bit and then overlaying some more anti slip on top of it

get some horse hair fiberglass to fill and sand to flush then recover . the spray foam will not hold up . or some other heavy duty epoxy

I have had three ramp doors put on put on our XLR also. Not fond of Lippert ramp doors but seem to be the only supplier.

My ramp door is doing the same thing. Actually it's more like the hinges are breaking through the door. I am very concerned about loading and unloading my motorcycle in the event that the door brakes off completely.

why wouldn't a rubber mat / floor glued to Styrofoam with 3/16" plywood and 1/16" fiberglass on the other side not hold up. Why would 100 psi rolling up it cause failure? Lippert should replace every darn ramp built like this with something that will hold up. The ramp should have 1/4" aluminum plate under the rubber mat / surface.

Mine is partly hollow around the perimeter. Most notably where the hinges attach.
Pictures included.
