Everything about the Easy Load Ramp System-XL is the same as the
description for the standard Easy Load Ramp System except the Ramps.
These Ramps are only 4’6” in length when stowed but
they telescope to a maximum of 8’. There are additional
stops built in at 5’, 6’ and 7’ which are convenient for
uneven terrain or driveways. The Easy Load Ramp System-XL is ideal for
use with vehicles which are higher off the ground such
as larger vans, SUV’s and pick-up trucks.
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).
Pick-up Truck Kit (plus $9.00)
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.
