Easy Load Ramp System (Two Ramps)
The Easy Load Ramp System consists of 2 Ramps, 1 Ramp
Support “T” (“T”) and
1 Receiver Hitch
Insert (RHI). The ramps are 5’ in length with side walls ~2” in height and they are ~3” wide. There is a 2’
Ramp Extension which nests outside the Ramp and flips over onto the floor of the
vehicle to which the trike will be loaded. The Ramp has a U channel latch which fits over
the horizontal bar of the “T”. The “T” fits into the RHI which is inserted into the vehicles
2” receiver hitch. The “T” is held in place with a 5/8” machine screw and the RHI is held
in place in the vehicle receiver hitch with a Hitch Tite. There is a lock available which
mates with the Hitch Tite. Ramp spacing on the “T” is marked with four Ramps Spacers.
The ramps are removed from the “T” and stowed on the floor of the vehicle under the
trike. Most people leave the RHI and “T” on the vehicle as it does not interfere with rear
The Easy Load Ramp System is ideal for loading a trike into a van or a smaller SUV. Three ramps are
available for loading the trike with the single wheel first or if you are nesting two trikes
(one trike two wheels first and the second trike single wheel first) in a wider van.
Please measure the height/distance from the bottom of the receiver hitch up to the floor of the vehicle (marked in red circle in the below picture).

Receiver Hitch Insert (RHI) for Pick-up Trucks (RHI-PU)
For recumbent trike and handcycle riders owning a pick-up truck, the RHI must be longer to allow the Ramp Support "T" to be used when the tailgate is lowered to horizontal. The RHI-PU allows the Ramp Support “T” to clear the tailgate when lowered to horizontal and the Easy Load Ramp System to be used properly and safely..
Ramp Support “T” for Pick-up Trucks (T-PU)
Pick-up trucks are generally taller, from the RHI to the floor of the truck. than a van or SUV. As such, a taller Ramp Support "T" is required. The T-PU has been developed in order for the "T" to clear the tailgate lowered to horizontal.
