1990 Kingston Trailer Ramp Lift Assist Options


Hi I have a 1990 Kingston horse trailer ramp load that I believe the spring under the ramp needs to be replaced. the ramp feels unusually heavy to lift once its down and I wouldnt be able to lift it in emergency if I had a horse in the trailer. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

We have a couple options for trailer ramps springs. The first one will work great if your ramp rides on a 1-1/2 inch shaft.

For that you would want the Ramp Spring - 2K Torque for 1-1/2" Shaft - RH # RS16933RH or # RS16933LH.

Or we have ramp springs like the Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring - Dual, 81" Wide # ERS120D81, this spring installs like a garage door spring. There is a lot of tension, so you want to make sure it is installed by someone who knows how to compress these springs and install the cables correctly to avoid possible injury.
