UHaul utility trailer with tailgate: what do you use for ramps

Postby tomcough » Thu Nov 21, 2019 1:53 pm

All:
I'll be transporting my great uncle's '48 Cub 50 miles. I see that some of you rent the UHaul 6x12 utility trailer for the job.

The front and rear wheels are set wider than the opening on the trailer with loading ramp. I see from past posts that some of you rent the trailer with the tailgate, which has a wider opening. My question: what do you use for ramps? Thanks in advance.

Not sure about the trailer/ramps, but I have had some success backing a trailer into a dip so that the rear of the trailer is at ground level. Or back it up to a rise (like a steep driveway), again so that the rear of the trailer is at ground level. Just a thought.

The 6X12 U-Haul utility trailer is available with a ramp.
