STOWABLE LOADING RAMP BRACKET IN THE WAY OF SLIDE IN CAMPER?

Hi All,

This is my first post. Finding lots of great answers to questions we have on this forum so thank you!

We're about to order a 2019 F350 Platinum Diesel Dually and would like to get the "stowable loading ramp" option (despite the cost) as we will also be getting a four wheeler. When we're not loading the four wheeler though, we will be loading our slide-in camper. Of course, the loading ramps themselves will have to be removed first but we're worried the rear bracket for the loading ramp on the drivers side will prevent the camper to sit where it should in the bed. If I could find a 2018 on a lot with the stowable ramp option I could measure to make sure but it's not an option any dealer is going to order for their lot trucks. Anyone have experience with this? Any help would be much appreciated!

I don't have a definitive answer for you unfortunately, but I do know that a lot of tonneau cover companies have said they interfere with their covers, which might be a bad omen for you. They are so expensive, I would just get a folding ramp instead, its a lot easier loading a 4 wheeler with a wider ramp like this and its like 75% less cost.

I have the option on my truck and can measure the distance they stick out with the ramps removed. I will let you know later tonight.

That is very kind of you e6baily and much appreciated! I would also appreciate the measurement from the bracket to the tail light.




I measured how much room I need there and it is 30". If there's 30" of room it won't matter how much the bracket sticks out. If not though, the "stick out" measurement would be helpful too.

The brackets appear to be a few hex bolts to remove, and return normal use of the box link system. I also confirmed with ford ramp equipped vehicles come with all box link hardware loose. I ordered ramps on my Ď19, fully expecting to remove them the day it arrives.

The safety bracket system on the tailgate was my real reason for wanting these ramps. Whenever I use them, Iíll put them in the bed and lock them using the keyed lock they come with. When Iím done, Iíll stick them back in the basement or barn with my bike/quad/etc

Yes, the brackets take all of 5 minutes to remove. First thing I did when I got the truck.

Why not tow the 4 wheeler on a small ATV trailer? Then you can take it with you camping!

The brackets definitely get in the way of tonneau covers. We tried to install them on my work truck and the wouldn't work together.
