    Had a small problem loading a car onto my trailer today... No loading ramps yet. So I tried backing my trailer into a hole dug for a perk test to get the deck low enough to push the cars up but it wasnt enough. Ended up digging out the hole bigger for both axles to go down and built a loading ramp on the back side. Worked great though.

    This one is just going to the scrap yard. Should have a forklift or crane at the other end to pick it up... Still need to build ramps for the trailer when I get the money to buy the material though.

    I still havent made any "real" ramps for my trailer yet either. Lately, I've been using our car-jump mounds for loading. I just back up the trailer to the mounds, and drive over and on.

    Here's a pic of Kevin (reeser) and his brother loading their truck onto my trailer using the same way I do at my place. Only drawback is it only works for 4x4's. Unless you get a run at it.
