Voltage Toy Hauler Ramp

Can anyone tell me, or better yet, show me a picture of what the inside metal framing looks like on the ramp? The laminate is becoming unglued and I want to be assured I can keep driving my car across it.
I have a 2016 3805 Voltage.

Can't help you with the photos... and I know this is gonna sound sarcastic. But maybe one reason it's coming apart is that you're DRIVING YOUR CAR ACROSS IT. These rigs are meant to be "toy haulers"... not necessarily transportation haulers.

Ok, that was just for a little fun with you. In all seriousness, I'm not sure what kind of car you've got (smart car?)... but I'm pretty sure these ramp-doors are only rated for about 2,500 lbs when in the ramp position (maybe up to 3,000?)... but I'd be nervous with anything much over 2,000 myself.

Cargo weight 2500 lbs. Ramp rating 3000 lbs. Car weight 2400 lbs. Ramp delaminated because the edges were not sealed, it rains on the ramp/patio. When the ramp is raised water drains out of ramp. The edges are now sealed.
