Unhappy

So drilling my door is going to be much harder than I thought. Trekwood won't even sell the cables and mounting brackets to me. Can't get anywhere with trying to get this patio going

Ramp supplies

Steve,
I was thinking about making my own cables, Lowes home improvement sell everything needed for this, the pins and connector to the frame are available as well. My thought was to look at a marine supplier to find a bracket to mount on the door. A heavy duty stainless steel bracket that is used to mount Boat tops is exactly what I need. Its just a simple two bolt with a pin connector. I will look around and see if I can find what I think will work and update.

My last toy hauler had no cables so I made my own for it. When I traded it in on my new trailer I kept all the cables for it. They are not as pretty as the ones that come with the patio kit but they will work. I have eye bolts that will bolt through the door frame and a sleeve that will fit over the bolt in the hole so that I can put some good torque on those bolts without crushing the frame. The cables have adjustable clevises on them so that I can get the ramp door level. I just need to make sure it is going to work by supporting the door at the points where I plan to install the eye bolts.

This is my setup. Standard door is enough to hold me and a couple of dogs so far.
Pick-up truck bed tie downs and some cable from home depot, about $60.

That is very nice looking work there.

I am picking up a Raptor 297SE next weekend and plan on doing something like what you have. Would you mind showing how / where you attached the other ends of the cables?

The top eyelet on the door frame was already there for the factory patio option. I just put another fastener on the end of the cables I made up.

Thanks for posting the additional picture CANAM.

Since I have just over a week until I pick up my new toy hauler I will have to wait to see if I have those upper mounting points there. I looked at the pictures on my dealers site and I don't have a good picture with the door open. The view from the inside is blocked by the screen for the rear opening.

I have the same brackets on my trailer. I believe they are all that way from the factory regardless of the patio kit option. Cost saving for them not to have to change anything up during the manufacturing of the frame.
