It is one reason (the other is man handling those long boards) I use the cut down 12x12x2 pieces for the tires. Easy for an old guy like me to carry and I can just reach over the side and pick out from the milk crate what I need. I also carry 8x12x1 pieces when I don't need to lift very much.

I use my bubble level so I don't need to get out of the truck to determine how many boards, what size, and what side they go on before I get out of the truck.
An old guy may not be able to manhandle the long boards, but a short guy can't reach over the side rails.

Thought of that!
I have the long running boards that go all the way back to the rear wheels! Just step right up!

Well....... at least it was only the door that was damaged. That can be fix/replaced by itself. A few inches to the left and the blood pressure and colorful language would have been turned up a notch.

You could say I was lucky.

I'm a smart man who makes stupid mistakes, but I did accept full responsibility without hesitation.

Stow the boards, long or short on the back bumper of the trailer or in the basement of the trailer. Problem solved.

Don't feel too bad... Been there, done that. My rig is at the dealer now getting a new door.

You carry duct tape with you, don`t you?

At least you can easily replace that door. I bumped my TT into my house and crinkled the siding on the RR. That takes a bit more than a door replacement! For the time being I popped it out. I may put some type of decal over it to hide it. I`ll have to do both sides to make it match.
