JD Heavener's Trailer Ramp Conundrum


Sick of loading up your expensive, low-profile car on wood? JD was. He and his wife, Laura, finally said "Enough is enough!" and upgraded to Race Ramps 7” H Trailer Ramps for a safer, easier and lighter trailering experience for his Shelby Cobra.

The process was slow and tedious. Whether it was wood or metal ramps, the pieces had to be transported, stored, set up and removed each time the car needed to come in and out. The risk? Having wood pieces fly out from under the rolling tires, or having the car catch on metal ramps that were not at all designed for loading a vehicle this low to the ground. The last thing any responsible car owner wants is to have a makeshift ramp set-up create damage to the car or injury to observers standing by.

A world of difference. The GT500 Mustang loads up with a smooth ramp-to-trailer transition.

JD and Laura picked up a set of 7" H Race Ramps Trailer Ramps and 7" H Race Ramps Trailer Ramps with a Flap Cut-out. In additional to 7" of lift height, the ramps have a notch for the trailer door to sit in that helps reduces the incline even further. The latter set also has a secondary cut-out along the top surface to accommodate for trailer flaps so that regardless of their trailer set-up, JD and Laura will always have the right Race Ramps for the task.
