    Hello guys,
    anyone can advice if it’s possible to install double-stacked ramp hangers on a drop deck with knee braces?

    Or do I have to go with single layer setup?

    I don’t think I would have enough space to hang them single layer on one of the sides because of the dunnage rack.

    What is the disadvantage and what to look for?
    Ramps would be from Landsport and 21” wide.
    Trailer is a Wilson.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for the picture sawmill.
    Do you know how wide are your ramps? And how tall is the whole setup? Also the clearance from the ground? Sorry for too many questions.

    Thanks pavrom. Altough your trailer doesn’t have knee braces. I want to double stack on a trailer with knee braces.

    There is different knee brace for this purpose , just do some research .
    I talked to my buddy and he never reinstalled knee brace ... All good for over a year , i removed 1 or 2 - no issue so far , depending whos driving and what loads you getting , those ibeams should withstand most of the loads i guess .
     
    Jacoooooooo Thanks this.
