Thread: Portable ramps

    Portable ramps

    I'm looking for a portable ramp that will fit behind the backseat of a Honda Odyssey minivan. Not for use to get into the van, just to go up 2-3 steps. Must be able to hold a power w/c and a 200 pound person. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    Google suitcase ramps.. Here is a good site with many. I recommend no less than a 4' ramp.

    There are many, many choices (a good thing and a bad thing). we are looking for a ramp that can be folded and ported in a regular-size trunk. it will be use by someone pushing person in a manual wheelchair. Does anyone have experience in selecting proper:

    1. ramp length (for going up 2-3 steps)
    2. number of folds?
    3. manageable weight? - have seen some aluminum ones that are almost 50 lbs! this would be very difficult to get in and out of a car

    also, has anyone had a wooden ramp built for portable use?

    Go to the link I posted.. has all your answers right there. A 4' is what you need for 2-3 steps, 1 fold with a handle, 20 lbs. and will fit in a trunk. A wooden ramp would be too heavy and not near as strong as aluminum.
