Rear door/ramp weight rating missing in spec sheets!

Serious info missing on toy hauler specs. The weight capacity of the rear ramp should be included in the spec sheets. I am sure the the weight capacity has changed with the new rear door/ramps on GW 19RR and GW 21RRs. I believe the doors are labeled but would be nice from a 'shopping' stand point if that info was one of the published specs.

I have had a 27' Wolf Pack for 3 years now and still haven't seen anything on the ramp capacity. It does handle a 925 lb. Gold Wing, with me on it, very well. I really never gave it much thought, as the salesman knew what I was going to haul in it before he even put this one on the list of possibilities. The trailer does very well all around, but we do max it out.

I've often thought about a Smart Car. If I were ever to go with a Class A TH like a Damon Outlaw, would the ramp handle the weight? I'm sure that info is somewhere but as the OP stated, it should be readily available as it speaks directly to usage options...and we all know those change as frequently as our moods.

Thanks for posting the photo, drc343. Duh....it was right there on my door frame. But, I can only see it when the door is open. I still don't know why I have never noticed it before. My door is a Lippert and is rated the same as yours. 3000 max and 1000 max per wheel.

Not having a th, what is the per wheel mean? i.e. 1600#max 1000#/wheel.

IMHO, that would indicate that the 'foot print' of a single wheel should not exceed 1000#. In motor cycle or ATV applications this would be a highly unlikely scenario.
