Sounds like they are taking care of you much like they took care of me. It also makes me wonder how many doors are replaced due to large bikes.

I was at my dealer today getting warranty work done on my furnace and took a look at the brand new 25RR trailers. It would appear to me that they are very receptive to customer feedback because the items I don't like about my trailer are fixed or improved in the new ones. Maybe they'll reinforce the doors down the middle in the near future and also address the clearance for touring bikes. It could happen.

I have a 2014 25RR and have the same issue with the ramp. Loaded my Ultra Limited for the first time last weekend and noticed a slight "valley" in the ramp after the bike was loaded. The sticker on the ramp states 1600 pound capacity. My fear is that it will only get worse. Going to contact the dealer today.

miatalou99 yea, and the sticker on mine says 1k each wheel 3k max for ramp itself, i got the bikes in the camper for winter incase we hit bike week in daytona in march... either way when i get the new door on, my bike will be goin in and out of that thing at least 20 times before i even leave the dealer. bow was very noticable after the 3rd time running the bikes in and out, both bikes are around 800 pounds give or take. Toby i here u i told keith that i was beginning to feel as thou i was getting the run around he assured me this wasnt the case, well i call both dealer and forest river tomorrow im beginning to wonder if this is gonna turn into a 16k dollar mistake. i have plans for modifying the door once warranty is gone but till then i shouldnt have to. and they can just keep giving me doors of course have to get the first one and then see what happens.

So how did it go. I don't believe you'll have any issues getting the door replaced under warranty.

Well after a phone call to forest river and a little bit of expletive usage, a week later the ramp door is at the dealer unfortunately they are closed until after the holiday. and will be open for a week or 2 in December so it looks like the door will wait until march or april to be installed. I'm sure as heck going to hold them to the 1 year for the door.

My dealer happily offered an extra year on the door. They also told me that fr said something to the effect that there was not going to be an issue with the door failing while I was sitting on it with my 900lb gold wing. I have nothing in writing unfortunately.

If it were me, I'd be in no hurry to get the door installed. Having the dealer closed works to your advantage IMHO. Get it installed right before the riding season starts. That gives you more time to use it under warranty. A year is a year but that's the way I'd prefer to have it.

and that is exactly why I'm going to wait till spring. and the 1 year I will make sure to get in writing. I also plan to use the ramp a few times before I leave the dealer, it didn't take to many trips up and down to cause this so it should be easy to know if it will happen again. now off to shovel snow.....

Don't get all worked up over it. My new door has worked well so far. I'm betting fr is interested in a permanent fix too. They've clearly replaced a few so far and at their cost. I just wish the warm weather would get here so I can use mine.
