Pet ramp

I think I need to get a pet ramp for my basset hound. She can walk up the stairs of our TT but has some trouble going down. I see there are a few on Amazon that are lightweight. Any experiences anyone would like to share on pet ramps?
Sorry if this has been posted before. I did a search but didn't find any threads on this subject.

I don't know if you have "Tuesday Morning" stores where you live, but I found a really nice folding one with sandpaper traction at that store for $50. They have had them at the stores I have gone to for quite a while now.

I don't know how this one is but it's one I saw on Camping World that you might consider:

We will need to get one of these, probably sooner than later. Our boy is becoming a senior and he's already physically challenged. We were just talking this week about the stairs on the new trailer, he might be intimidated by them. One of these ramps might be the perfect remedy.

I like your ideas Cosmik! Practicing at home will be a big help for sure.

I bought mine from Petco and it had a sand paper like finish and Tunce could not get a grip so I put carpeting on it. I made an aluminum step and added it to the top of the ramp to decrease the approach slop.

A close up of that step and I also changed out the plastic clip that came with the ramp. It's just a chain with a key ring and a steel clip. First time I used it it broke and the ramp slipped off the bumper and fell to the driveway. Also use this on the TT steps.

So her feet couldn't slide off the back of the step I made risers for 2 steps that are hinged and fold flat so I can still fold up the steps.
I put white electrical tape in the edge of the steps to make them easier to see at night both for us, our guests and first of all Tunce.
Hope you get something out of my posts.
