    Does anyone have any plans or measurments for a RTI ramp? It looks pretty easy to make and I think it would be cool to have.
    Thanks

    I don't have any plans but I built the bottom, uprights and angle bracing out of 2x2 square tubing and the 20 degree angle out of 2" angle iron with expanded metal over the top of the rails. It is plenty strong. I am going to make in adjustable to 30 degrees since I can max it now. The ramp is 144" long /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Here are some pics of our ramp. Its mostly 1.5" sch 40. The wheels fold down and lock in the down position for road travil. There is also a female reciever on the front that a hitch coupler slides into.

    Those wheels seem to be buried in sugar or something.... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
