26RR Ramp door construction

Is anyone familiar with the construction of the ramp door on the 26RR. I recently purchased a 2018 and need to attach some legs to the edge of the door.

Do you want to permanently attach the legs to the door? I have seen some folks using removable jack stands for that.
How do you like your 26RR? I will pick mine up this week, anything you found at the PDI that I should keep an eye on?

Yes, I am looking to bolt these jacks to the door. I need the door to be held at a specific height to add extension ramps.

We love the camper, my only complaint thus far was the mattress in the bedroom was lousy. We bought a memory foam mattress instead. We didn't find anything wrong with it at the PDI and have had no issues with it yet.

Those look nice. Where did you find them ?
On your unit is there a battery kill switch? I remember seeing it on the model we looked at when we ordered it but it didn't come with our 26rr..😔

I mounted those jacks on my 26rr. I used the hole at the top of the ramp where the rubber bumper was mounted and drilled a second hole on each side. I used a piano hinge to mount the extension for easier loading of our motorcycle. Works great

Do you have any pictures of your extension set up? What size is your extension and what did you use for material?

Loaded my Harley last fall in my Wolfpack 25/12 and was a little harrier than I like

Ill get some pictures of it tomorrow. I used a 4x4 piece of 3/4 plywood for the extension. I got the hinge from e-trailer it's pretty heavy duty. I also put a couple pieces of angle iron under the extension just for extra measure. It's much easier to load and unload now. I can touch flat foot the whole way in and out.

Jeremy, I see two springs on your ramp door. Mine has only one. Did you add the second one? I need more help getting the ramp up & down.

No I didn't add any springs. Adding the ramp does make the door heavier. But still manageable

Very nice mod Jeramy! How long is your ramp extension ~ from the piano hinge to the ground end?

This would be fantastic to add on our 26RR, currently packing extra ramps and small jacks along now to help load without bottoming out.

Look at the 2019's, they have a cable that hold the ramp up to make a deck. Should easily be added to a 2018 and all you do is disconnect the cable for ramp use.

Jeramy. Got a few questions / requests. Can you send a closeup of where and how exactly you mounted the hinge. Can you sent the dimensions of the additional ramp. Did you look into a sheet of aluminum plate for the ramp? Sorry for all of the questions. Thanks

I am not going to be by the camper for a couple weeks so I won't be able to get any more pictures. The piano hinge I got from e-trailer and mounted it to the top edge of the door. I just used some stainless sheet metal screws. I put a couple pieces of small angle iron under the extension for a little more support. I looked into aluminum but it was more expensive than I wanted to get into. I'm sure a piece of diamond plate would work fine. I mounted the support jacks at the top of the door where the rubber bumpers were.
