Octane 222 loading ramp weight
New to the forum, recently purchased 2020 Octane 222 Toy Hauler.
On this trailer, the weight and effort to lower and close the ramp appears to be excessive.
Looking to see if others have added additional counter weight springs to their Toy Hauler ramps.
On this Octane 222, the loading ramp has the additional ramp package to use it as a deck, though the aluminum rails do not appear to be add much weight.
Had, watched the demo video of the 222, which shows lowering and closing the ramp, and it did not appear to be as difficult.
Factory response to the question is that it is balanced as designed with 3 springs.
I weighed it the outer edge to ground at 90 degrees, ramp parallel to ground and it came in at 62 lbs.
Have owned other enclosed trailers with loading ramps, where the ramp weight was balance much better.... though those used the cable/torque spring counter balance than the direct springs.
Any thoughts or advise much appreciated... Ski
