You've now had a chance to use your trailer a few times. How easily does the car load onto it? Is there anything you would change?

I'm going to be ordering a trailer at some point. Not sure it'll be this season, but for sure by the start of next season.

Terri, I love this trailer. It tows great has lots of room, and is quite sturdy... The entry onto the ramps is a touch steep but I fixed that by building a couple or racer ramps. It extends the effective length of the ramps four feet.

I'll try to get some pics of it later, but you pull the regular ramps out to their full length and then set the end on these ramps. It raises the end of the regular ramp about five inches, making for a smoother flatter transition.

There is a company the makes a manufactured piece, I'll see if I can find the link, but I opted to build my own.

Thanks for the info. I understand what you're saying about the ramps. Cool.
