The Benefits of Portable Loading Ramps for Recreational Vehicle Enthusiasts

For recreational vehicle enthusiasts, transporting off-road vehicles like ATVs, motorcycles, and dirt bikes is an integral part of the adventure. However, loading and unloading these vehicles into a truck or trailer can be a challenging task. Portable loading ramps offer a practical and efficient solution, making the process safer, faster, and more convenient. EZ-ACCESS® has several ramps that meet this need, and we have many in-house recreational vehicle fans ourselves! We’ll explore the various benefits of portable loading ramps and help you land on the best choice for your needs.

How Portable Loading Ramps Benefit You

  • Enhanced Safety: Safety is a primary concern when loading and unloading heavy equipment. Recreational vehicles are both heavy and bulky, making moving them a difficult task for even the strongest individuals. It could be nearly impossible to move or lift the vehicle yourself without a ramp present. Portable ramps provide a secure pathway, significantly reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. They are designed to offer stability and support, ensuring that your vehicle or equipment doesn’t slip or fall during the loading process. When a recreational vehicle can weigh anywhere from 100 lbs to 1,000 lbs, preventing injury or accidents by using a portable ramp is a smart move. 
  • Convenient and Time-Saving: Setting up a loading ramp for a pickup truck is quick and easy, saving you valuable time. Portable ramps are typically easy to store and deploy in seconds. While a larger or more permanent ramp, lift, or other tool can take up a lot of space or require significant setup, ramps are a breeze. Simply unfold, place, and use! This means you can spend more time enjoying your adventure and less time struggling with loading your gear. The ease of use and quick setup make portable ramps an essential tool for any off-road vehicle enthusiast. 
  • Increased Accessibility: For users with mobility issues, portable ramps can also provide easier access to trucks and trailers. They create a gentle slope that is easier to navigate than steps, making the loading process more accessible for everyone. 
  • Vehicle Protection: Loading heavy vehicles and equipment without a ramp can cause damage to your truck or trailer. If your bike tips or your ATV goes over the edge, your vehicle could need costly repairs or suffer unsightly dents and scratches. Portable ramps help distribute the weight of the recreational vehicle evenly, helping to prevent damage to your vehicle. Your truck or trailer stays in good condition, so you can head out on your adventure without worry! Using portable ramps also reduces general wear and tear on your vehicle’s loading mechanisms and doors. By providing a smooth and controlled loading process, ramps help preserve the structural integrity of your truck or trailer, ensuring it remains in good condition for longer.
  • Get to the Fun Faster: When you’re excited to get riding or ready to head home after a long day, you don’t want to spend a lot of time getting your vehicle in position. One of the biggest advantages of portable loading ramps is how they expedite the loading and unloading process. With less time spent struggling with heavy equipment, you can hit the road faster and start enjoying your adventure sooner. The convenience and efficiency of portable ramps allow more time for fun and less time for hassle. ATV, motorcycle, and golf cart loading ramps are the key to maximizing recreation time!

Using Portable Loading Ramps for Recreational Off-Road Vehicles

The main use of a portable ramp for recreational vehicles is straightforward, but this equipment is versatile and adapts to your situation. It comes in handy when transporting heavy equipment or navigating uneven areas. 

  • Loading and Unloading: Portable ramps are primarily used for loading and unloading off-road vehicles into trucks or trailers. These ramps provide a stable surface, making it easier to drive or push your vehicle into the transport vehicle safely. It can reduce the number of people necessary to get the vehicle from one point to another.
  • Transporting Heavy Gear: In addition to vehicles, portable ramps are invaluable for loading heavy camping gear, generators, and other equipment. They allow you to roll these items into your truck or trailer, reducing the need for heavy lifting and minimizing the risk of injury.
  • Navigating Obstacles: Portable ramps can help you overcome obstacles like curbs or uneven ground, ensuring that your equipment can be moved smoothly from one place to another. This is particularly useful at campsites or outdoor locations where the terrain can be unpredictable.

EZ-ACCESS Portable Loading Ramps

We’ve got several portable ramps to fit your recreational vehicle needs. Each was designed with exacting specifications to meet the different situations or dimensions that may be required when managing a recreational vehicle:

  • TRAVERSE™ Singlefold Ramp: With ramps available in both six-foot and eight-foot lengths and handling rated loads of up to 1,200 lbs, this option can fit many needs. The TRAVERSE Singlefold Ramp is easy to set up, taking only moments to unfold and put in place. When unfolded, the full-length hinge allows uniform weight distribution, spreading the load across the surface. With an extruded surface, traction is excellent for both feet and wheels! The TRAVERSE Singlefold Ramp comes in both an edgeless and edged model. Edgeless allows wider ATVs with inset wheels to be loaded with ease. The TRAVERSE Singlefold Edgeless Ramp is also detachable to separate the two portions for wider recreational vehicles. The folding design includes carrying handles, making traveling easy. 
  • TRAVERSE™ Folding ATV Ramp: This solution is a portable ramp made for ATV loading and unloading. Like all of our ramps, it is made in America from durable aluminum that has no problem supporting recreational vehicles and heavy equipment. It features a durable, high-traction tread that grips to provide slip resistance. When in position, the top lip extension eliminates any gaps and creates a smooth transition between surfaces. The ATV ramps have a rated load of 1,000 lbs for the set on both the six-foot and eight-foot models. Both lengths weigh less than 30 lbs and have comfort grip handles that make taking the ramp with you no problem at all. 
  • TRAVERSE™ Folding Motorcycle Ramp: This portable ramp is great for motorcycle loading and unloading. With a perpendicular hinge across the center, this ramp folds into the most compact position to minimize the space required for storage. Like the Folding ATV Ramp, it features an applied slip-resistant surface to help prevent you or your vehicle from sliding. Many users purchase two of them—one to move the motorcycle and one to walk up alongside the vehicle. The comfort grip handles on the motorcycle loading ramp not only make taking the ramp with you easy but also serve as a way to keep the ramp folded and secure. With easy deployment and folding, this ramp makes quick work of loading and unloading your bike, so you can spend more time riding.
