Mr Whiskey,

Where in east TN are you??? I'm in Georgetown, about 12 miles north of Cleveland... You can come over and look at mine if you want to and we can chat a bit about installation... Send me a PM and I'll give you my phone number... I have mine installed in an F-250 6 1/2 foot bed... Works just fine but I can give you a few tips on install and operation... I haul my bike both on 2 wheels and 3 er, well 4 with the Tow Pac trike kit installed...

The rampage lift looks like it works well and I've considered purchasing one. However, it's not something that I would use often. How difficult is it to dismount the rampage lift itself (not the bike) from the truck and how much of a pain is it to store away?

I've always been under the notion that a 5x8 trailer has a lot more uses the other 364.9 days of the year I'm not towing my Goldwing. That aside, seems like these questions would be specific to the tow vehicle which was not mentioned (my attempt at being helpful on this topic).

If you're going on vacation and pulling a big self-contained camp trailer the rampage makes a lot of sense. Especially when it's going in a full size dually. As mentioned in the OPs post.

Yea, I'll take that because 1) I didn't know what a Rampage was and 2) I missed the part about a dually. Thanks for the education.

Haven't installed it yet so....
all I can tell ya is it's pretty heavy &...
the reason the guy sold it to me is he was tired of takin' it in & out of the bed of his pickup.
I plan to install & leave it. If I hafta haul something I'll use my trailer.

I'm using ramps rather than the Rampage. This is our third winter in Fl and I can tell you the cake is great! Enjoy.

The complete install instructions can be found on Rampage website and you tube.
I installed mine 7 months ago, easy install if your handy with a drill and wrenches
You'll also want to install 2 tie downs close to center on each side to attach to the frame , behind side covers. Makes for better stability.
I brought my from Idaho to Florida no issues.
If your installing by yourself, you can do it in 3 sections. This and bolt points will be on the video.
Good luck and enjoy

Did you use riv-nut inserts?
I jus' cant talk myself into trusting them.
Thinkin' I might "hard mount" it with bolts, fender washers, & nylon lock nuts.

Not planning to tie off at frame, don't want to get caught in rain with side covers off.
Intend to secure front of bike to loader & run second set of straps from triple tree to truck bed, then secure rear wheel to loader to keep it from moving/hopping around.

I also have a friend that's had some trouble with rear rollers of lift cutting into bed of his truck, anybody else had that problem?

Peace, Whiskey.
