Hi

I have ordered the Promaster 1500 Low Roof 118" wheelbase and need a foldable ramp to move wheeled equipment. Couple questions;

1) What is the absolute shortest ramp I could use that would clear the rear bumper and reach the ground? I currently have an 82" ramp I use for a Ford Transit Connect that I was hoping I could utilize.

2) Has anyone purchased a specific brand & length they are happy with?

Thank you for your time/help!

I'll be watching this thread closely, since I will also need a ramp if I ever end up with a Promaster and I've been looking at ramps a lot.

There are two basic options. Either a ramp mounted inside the van or one mounted outside. There is an outside ramp on eBay that shows up from time to time. Search on "pivoting cargo loading ramp". It basically attaches to the rear frame/bumper and folds up flat against the back doors when stowed. I like the fact that it doesn't take up any interior room.

The interior ramps take up room inside the cargo area, but they remain clean and dry. LINK is one of the companies that offers interior ramps. Check out

Then there are the really nice interior ramps, that also pivot out like a door to give you access to the loading area. These are the Mac Daddy versions.

They don't list a US dealer, but I have come across this type of ramp before from a US dealer, but I can't seem to find the link right now. If I come across it in the future I'll update this thread.

Harbor freight ramp - $162 out the door. Done.

The weight rating is deceptive as it is for a "spread out" weight across the ramp. You are not going to put a 1200lb load on a dolly & be-bop down the ramp. For heavy loads, simply cut a 4x4 & stuff it under the middle hinge for support if you are trying to move something stupid heavy.

Thanks for the links on van ramps. Multi car systems also offers them. Not sure if they ship to North America or not.
