Geometry again. How many inches does the wheel of the bike need to be raised to avoid the bike hitting the hump? Note: not how many inches does the door need to be raised at the bottom, which will be many inches more. This is the issue and I imagine when I get to try mine this week that it would be only an inch or two for the lowest bike, so that is just short plank under the wheel at that point. It could be that the front wheel may need to ride up on a small lank inside the trailer at this point also with very low bikes.
This would mean no need for elaborate extensions etc. and we all carry short planks for under our stabilizers and jacks. Give it a try with a mate to help and see what the possibilities are. You could always mark the point at which they are to be placed with a small piece of tape if you wish.
I hope it may be an easier possibility.

Be sure to post some pictures of your trials and triumphs ( wins not the bike!) A picture says 1,000 words.

I'm thinking about when you are unloading how easy is it to keep the bike on the plank backing down.

The next time I load my bike, I'm going to take pictures of how high the front is jacked and one of the clearance on the hump.

I think the length needed will not be long and in my mind I thought of 1 or 2 planks sideways. Each of my planks is about 8" wide so it's just a matter of riding over them rather than along them.
But I'll wait until later this week when I've tried out my 8th grade geometry. 'Cause it was Australian geometry so it could be all upside down. 😉
Glad there are so many enjoying the delights of the Grey Wolf RR series. Mine got the vote of approval from 2 of my motorcycling friends who are pretty fussy and travel with a Jayco 40+ foot 5er.

Im thinking if I take 2 peices if 3/4 inc ply wood and screw them together and make them 24 wide and 3 or 4 ft long that it would be enough. May be stager them so they are like stairs and cut the end in a 45 degree

Cover for 19rr?

Does anyone know where to get a good fitting cover for the 19rr? We just purchased this trailer and will have to store it in our uncovered driveway for this coming winter. We want to weather protect it somehow. Anyone have any brands they recommend that are a good value for the price?

19RR to 22RR

Hello 19RR thread, unfortunately my 19RR was totaled with the recent hail storm in south central TX. The good news is we just purchased the new floor plan 22RR. I will still be checking this thread as most of the mods can be applied to both rigs.
