Hydraulic Lift Gate?

Has anyone heard of a company that could convert the ramp door of our toy haulers into a hydraulic lift gate similar to what the custom race car trailers have? I ask because I currently load a low profile formula race car and with the height of our trailers it makes it very challenging. I have to use 2 sets of long loading ramps and jack stands to make it all work.

Looking for an easier solution. Thoughts?

Hydraulic Lift Gate?

I use to drive a tool truck with a Hydraulic Lift gate, it was necessary to pick up and deliver tool boxes.

One thing to consider is the length of the car. I sold a three bay mega box and it was too long to get on the lift and load into the truck so I had to return to the freight dock and pick up / deliver with a trailer.

Thankfully the car fits completely on the ramp door so that is it an issue

You could give the folks at discountramps.com a call. Don't let their website fool you, if anything it downplays their services. They can custom build ramps to your specifications, making your onload and offload much eaiser. I had a quote from them for a set of custom made ramps that were over 20 feet long and the price was extremely reasonable.
