Re: Trailer extension or winch?

Back to the OP original question.

A good extension beats a winch.
The nicest extension I have seen is a tongue that slides out of the trailer.
  • Stop on the level ground before the ramp
  • Remove the locking pin
  • Pull the extension out
  • Insert the locking pin
  • Then back down the ramp
  • Don't forget to use your parking brake
