Ramp Angle

I have a 2011 Grey Wolf toy hauler. I was wondering if anyone else has a little trouble with the angle of the ramp when you load and unload? I haul a 2006 HD Heritage Softtail and drag the frame of the bike when loading and unloading. To help mitigate the situation I raise the front of the camper and have tried blocking the deck, but the problem area seems to be the angle formed into the aluminum edge at the top of the ramp. Any thoughts?

Try blocking the tongue jack and raising it up to decrease the angle on the ramp. I lower the jack once I have the bikes in the trailer. I've never had a problem dragging using this method.

I know the trailers are a little different but at the dragstrip where the cars have no ground clearance, the guys will have rubber "stands" at the top of the door that hold the door off the ground. Then they have an aluminum extension that folds out that is usually about as big as the door. It does alot for the ramp angle.
