Which Size Ramp
Should I Buy?

Ramp4Paws comes in two sizes. Which size is best for your vehicle?

18-Link Ramp
The 18-link ramp is designed for station wagons, most SUVs and small trucks. From the ground to the top of your car bumper/tailgate, the height should be no more than 31″ in order to ensure that the slope of the ramp will be manageable for your dog. (Heights greater than this may cause the slope of the ramp to be too steep.) Some SUVs (the Volvo, BMW and full-size Range Rover) are not suitable for Ramp4Paws because they have rear doors which split in half: the window portion lifts up, and the lower portion folds down to rest on top of the bumper, adding several inches to the bumper height and making the ground-to-tailgate angle too steep. The Audi Q7 bumper also presents a problem: the bumper has no rubber surface on which to rest the ramps rubber foot, and is slightly sloping, making it difficult to position the ramp securely. If you own a truck, with a tailgate that folds down to rest on the bumper, please make sure the ground-to-tailgate distance is no more than 31″. For example, the Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are suitable for the 18-link ramp.

10-Link Ramp
The 10-link ramp is designed for vans with sliding side doors, two-door cars, and small sets of stairs. Vans with sliding side doors are lower to the ground and open wide enough to accommodate the 10-link ramp nicely; ground-to-vehicle entry height should be no more than 17″. Two door cars also open wide enough for the ramp. The 10-link ramp also is suitable for small sets of stairs.
