Actually have three answers here. #1 when I loaded the bike at home, the door was on the ground. My driveway is pitched enough that the ramp was not that steep. #2 when I unloaded at the campground. The road was pretty flat, so I had to place a few 6x6's across the door (only one high...5.5 inches...) and then just rolled down the ramp. #3 when I loaded the bike at that campground, I just raised the nose of the camper (via the electric tongue jack...). I went pretty high but was able to keep the door on the ground.
The key for me was not to "sit" on the bike and instead drive the bike up the ramp with both feet walking up the ramp as I straddled the bike. This gave me the clearance at the top of the ramp but still gave me control of the bike (feathering the clutch and brake...).
I would highly recommend "testing" out these procedures in your driveway or street. Better to know what you need and how to do it when you are at home then when you are at the campground and you don't have the supplies you need...
