10' ramps are very nice to use and i would like the piece of mind with a higher weight capacity.

Am gonna have to think this over.
Understand the concern. I just back up to the curb and the angle is fine.

I'm thinking about the concept of using a curb, ditch, et. al. to lessen the angle. I don't haul the cart in the back of the truck a lot, so may be able to get by with shorter ramps by using such assists. Ironically, my biggest problem is at home, not my destinations.

I got a set of utv aluminum arched folding ramps rated at 1500 lbs each. I have loaded all types of carts and can load a stock cart into a 2500 4x4 on level ground. I also use them as a bridge between trailer and flatbed truck. I have had these for about 3 years and no issues with them. I can't find where I got them but paid $300 with freight.

IMO I think ramps are dangerous! I just about got smashed using ramps once, not going into details. I bought a trailer the next day! Best money I've ever spent.

I understand what you are saying, however for some of us a trailer is not an option. I guess i could tow a trailer behind my 36 travel trailer, however I think that would be more dangerous than using ramps and being extra careful. If set up right, ramps are quite safe!

Sebber,
I have the same problem, have to haul the cart while dragging a TT behind. Also, I don't think it's legal to pull a trailer behind a TT. Many states do allow pulling a small trailer behind a 5th wheel trailer, but not all. A friend from KY got a warning from a cop in (I think) FL about this; he was hauling his golf cart trailer behind his 5'er.

I was told the same about Florida! In Canada I believe it is permitted however I would never do it. I already get enough sway on windy days with just my 36 footer, I could only imagine what it would look like with an extra trailer!

Again, i can't stress enough, good ramps, used the right way are completely safe, heck some contractors use these types of ramps every day, several times a day and never have any issues!
