The rubber bumpers fit right in the tops of these.

Thank you, I don't really want my door lifted as high as yours in the pic, are they set to as low as they go in that pic

No they go lower. You can get them with different minimum height. mine are 5 1/4" and extend to 12".

26RR Ramp extension

No they are set to this height. Where my trailer sits and ramp comes down the drive slopes a bit. So in the pick you see a gap of almost 9" but on other end its 7".

Here are pics. If you wanted smaller than 5" you could always cut down with metal saw.

You could lower your door take tape and lift it to 5". That would give you idea how high it would raise door. What you saw in first pic was over 9" due to slope in driveway.

I ended up making my own ramp by modifying an old rhino plastic car ramp I had lying around. I cut down 2x8s and bolted then to the back of the ramp lower than the back of the ramp to allow the trailer door to rest on. I then put some plywood on top and bolted it through and extended the width just to give me a place to put my feet as I am guiding it on and off. I think it's going to work out pretty well

I realize that this topic is over a year old, but was wondering how high if any do you guys have to raise to front of your trailer to get you bike in without it bottoming out.

I have a 2010 Ultra and have not yet tried to get mine in or out. I am looking at the set-up moligney used as I feel it may be a little easier to make. This is especially true as I already have bumpers on my ramp doors but would probably raise the ramp by about 2-3 inches.

I would appreciate any and all feed back on this as I really want to take the bike to Florida or Arizona this year.

you do not want much ramp angle or you will catch right at the top of the ramp.

I use step levelers to raise my ramp door up to 9" based on terrain. Then I have a 4' wheelchair ramp to bride the gap. Click image for larger version
