Patio kit

Has anyone recently purchased a patio kit to turn ramp into a patio. I have a new stealth and am interested in what's out there.

Standard toy hauler doors are not strong enough to handle the extra weight. The company that makes the "play-pen" rig for toy haulers, will not sell "kits." There is another fairly recent thread on this subject here, just can't remember the link.

Are you talking about an extended a room. We purchased one at camping world. The first time we installed it was very difficult. We have our's folded up in place in side. Because breaking it down each time is a bear. We have a kit it comes with leveling stands. This is great for keeping our dogs in. And still they can look out.

Youre telling me that a door that can support a 1000# Rzr or some other side-by-side during loading and unloading will be unable to support the weight of a few people standing on it? I find that hard to believe...

I contacted my dealer and they in turn contacted the factory rep and they said they would not recommend it and if anything was done to the door it would void the warranty. So I guess no rear patio.

So I guess I'm just wondering--what would you have to "do" to the door? I can see building some sort of support for the corners--maybe out of 2X4s, or old jackstands, etc...something that's padded that the bumpstops (that normally hit the ground when the door is down) would rest on. I don't see you needing to do anything to the door, unless you're going "Raptor Style" and putting the fold-out railings on the door, which seem to be totally unnecessary. I would think something to support the door (from the spots where it normally rests on the ground) and voila! Patio.

This is what people do which works well if the door is hanging over uneven ground. This they say would void the warranty wether it's homemade or store bought.
