That's what I was afraid of...

IMHO the simplest and most professional-looking solution would be to purchase a lightweight folding aluminum ATV loading ramp, and some blocking. Prop the end of the toy hauler ramp up with the blocking and bridge the distance to the ground with the ATV ramp. Adjust the blocking so that the two ramps together make one uniform slope.

I found this on a quick Google search, good luck!

We have Can-am and it drags. We have to put a couple of blocks under the front jack and raise it up as high as we can. We don't have a problem since we did this

Bit the bullet and ordered our 2015 26RR today in the all the bells and whistles edition and Doe interior. Added the rear screen, extra battery, and it was still right on my budget. Because of snow and ice etc will take delivery next April.
I don't really like the new interiors as much as the old but that's not a deal breaker, nor is the change to the TV mount & the loss of a potential storage space. I guess they did this to allow larger TVs. The faux brick is ugly but maybe it can be removed.
I can start planning some additional cupboards and useful modifications over winter as the dealer gave me a plan with enough dimensions of the interior.
It's good to read other owners' experiences.

Congratulations! You are going to love your camper/toyhauler. I feel it is a great value. Keep us posted once you receive it and your mods.

Butterfly6842,
I'm in Michigan near Midland.
One set of cupboard additions that inspired me was done on these forums to a 25rr. It was a large cupboard set right down the RH side & still allowed 2 bikes. He is Canadian I think - search for pimp my 25rr by Night-Wolf and you should find it. I don't intend to do as big a set as that and my woodworking skills leave a bit to be desired.
Take care and happy planning.

New member here. Bought our first RV, the Grey Wolf 26RR. Recently retired and will be spending 3 months this winter in Florida in her. Bringing the toys; two BMW650GS's, kayaks and bicycles.


We chose this model for the weight (towing with a 2012 Ram 1500) and layout. It was important for us to have the bed accessible from both sides. I think we got all the options, since it was a pre-ordered unit.


Have a couple of mods finished or in progress. Changed the TV mount since the one that came with the unit blocked access to the DVD player. I installed a Morryde TV5-003H mount that is sturdier (Steel) and adjustable:

I have on order (currently back-ordered) an underbelly spare tire carrier:

Recently did a test outing at a nearby campground on Normandy lake here in Middle Tennessee. Everything worked well. A picture:

Mr. Wilson, congratulation on you purchase. I will be interested in knowing how you like the under mount spare tire holder as I am considering doing the same to mine. Keep us posted.
Cheers
