Ok, I measured height of the trailer. The deck is about 29" off the ground. My current ramps are almost 9.5' long.

most ramps for trailers are around 6ft. it depends what vehicle your hauling it with also, to determine the tail height. ive got 8 foot boards that i use and they work fine, if i have a problem with something hitting i put the tounge jack down and lower the rear of the trailer reducing the angle. it has worked great so far.

I reccommend adding legs to the bottom of them of some sort to support the weight of what's being loaded so the ass end of the trailer doesn't go down and lift the back of the truck up at the same time....
