2017 222 party deck

hey guys,
so before I ask this question I just wanna say I did a search and didn't really find any answer, also I will not call jayco to find out if I can convert my ramp into a party deck..of course they're gonna say NO!!
one guy of this forum did mention that his ramp warped on his 222 after losing his hog in and out like 10 times..

so I went to the camper show yesterday here in Michigan and they had one toy hauler, it was a Cherokee..now why wouldn't jayco show up!!
anyways I took some pics of the cable setup so I can do this to mine.

has any 222 octane owners do the the deck conversion yet?

We have a new Octane 161, and we had the dealer call Jayco to ask about this option specifically. Jayco said that it's not an option on the Super Lite trailers, but we have a workaround that we're building right now.

Given that one user here reported warping of the door just by driving their Harley up the ramp, I don't have a ton of confidence in the door's strength when used as a party deck with just cables. We're going to instead build something along the lines of this:

The idea is to build cushioned supports under the door to help spread the weight across the entire door. We're designing ours to also handle being deployed over a river bank or similar uneven ground. I'll post follow-up pictures when we're done.
