We bolted 2 removable wheel chocks and end up loading 1 of the bikes backward w/ the 50 in between them. I'll have to grab better pics next time, I remembered to take this one at the last minute, as they were unloading them. Click image for larger version

Reply to cabinet question

The cabinet came with our 2014 Grey Wolf 19RR. The modification was to add a shelf on the top portion of the cabinet. The location is on the right side of the sofa, corner of outside wall and the bathroom wall. This item could probably be ordered at Forest River via a dealer of your choice.

I seem to be unable to find the post I need. My drawer under the stove (no oven in ours) has already broken. What/how was this reinforced to keep it from happening again? I found the post for the drawers under/by the sink but not the one under the stove. Thanks!

Ramp Extensions Revisited.

Been a while since I've been on the forum. I didn't use my 21rr much last year, but the couple times I did, I jury rigged the ramp with some concrete landscaping blocks to give it about 4" more of lift, then used an aluminum ramp extension to get my Victory Vision up on the ramp and into the trailer. The system worked but it was a PITA to set up.

For this year, I'm planning on modifying my hitch so the front of the trailer rides a little higher when hooked up. Then have ordered an electric tongue jack with 18" of extension, so I will use that to get the front up even higher and the rear lower. I think I still may need to raise the ramp some. Has anyone looked at these as an option - RhinoRamps.


The alternative would be to go with PitPal bumpers. These give 3.5" of lift from standard.



BTW, this year I'm hauling a 2010 Harley Ultra Classic. My BMW f650gs is high enough no ramp mods are needed to load and unload.

The only think I don't like about the "tip your trailer" approach (raising the hitch end to make the transition between the ramp and the floor of the camper less of an angle) is once you get the bike in the trailer, the entire trailer is tilted like a ramp and I would be concerned keeping a big bike in the wheel chalk while strapping it in. I have one of the wheel chalks that as you roll the front tire in, it flips forward holding the bike in place and I can get entirely off the bike and then install the tie-down straps by myself. If the entire trailer is tipped, I would be concerned with the bike rolling backwards till it is strapped down or someone else can level the trailer back out.

IMHO, I still feel the best solution is to put a piano hinge along the inside, top edge of the ramp (top when ramp door is closed) and attach a thick piece of diamond plate. Then when you lower the ramp, you can have permanent rubber bumpers that hold the ramp up or anything you want to put under there temporarily and then flip out your hinged extension.

I hear you, but there are several folks who have posted here that raising the front end works just fine. In terms of a longer-term solution, though, I think the diamond plate or even a 4' piece of 3/4 ply on a piano hinge combined with taller bumpers installed at the top outside of the rear door would be the best way to go.

Another issue on the chock - I have a similar chock that holds the bike up once I'm rolled into it. Course, you have to strap it down once off the bike.

How do you fasten the chock to the floor? I've been hesitant to drilll through the floor. I'm handy but not that handy. This might be a mod I'll have the local muffler/trailer repair shop do for me.
