    I'm sure there are a couple of you guys that have fabbed a RTI ramp.
    I'm looking some plans/drawings. Not sure what angle I want to use either.
    I need some ideas before I get started.

    Thanks

    Make it a 25* ramp, about 2' wide, as for length you will have to do some math or just buy the steel and figure it out.

    Here are a bunch of pictures of the one our club built. We also bought a cheap small utility trailer "kit" and used the axles, tires, lights, and hitch to rig up a quick release system that transforms it to a trailer.....just takes a minute. There is also a .50 cal ammo box welded on it to hold a tape measure, pencils, calculator, etc...to keep track of the ramp scores.

    RTI ramp

    The ramp is 30+ degrees and thus a little on the steep side....something in the mid-20's would probably work better for most people.

    We looked up the laws and it classifies as an implement (like a pull behind concrete mixer, air compressor, etc...) and therefore does not require tags. Technically it doesn't even need lights, just some reflectors, but we had the lights and stuff already in the kit so we decided to spend 15 minutes to slap them on.

    It's been on several 200+ mile roundtrips so far with no real issues. The only thing that needs some work is that we moved the spring to axle mounting location a lot further inboard, and the extra leverage between the tire and spring mount has caused the axle to start bending a little.

    I kinda figured it was like a small trailer.
