No reason why it should not work. My dad put one in the side of his small garden shed that was only about 6 or so feet high, . I could check with him where he got it. very light weight.

.. check out the ones used on rescue vehicles/firetrucks (can be pricey) .. fair warning though, they are not insulated nor weather-proof/water tight in most cases .. not sure if other commercial units are either .. good thoughts though ..

Those style doors would be anchored to a building... how much pounding would they take bouncing up and down the road?


Chasgoat: How long is your ramp, does it go up to the curve in the roof or below the lights?....or did you drop the floor or raise the roof? how much of a pitch is the ramp?

Thanks

I can't take credit for the conversion, but I did rebuild it to withstand higher loads. My back door is 7 1/2' x 7 1/2". It uses 2 3" hydraulic pistons bolted underneath the dovetail. Requires no power or hydraulics to open, but needs engine and pump running to close.
