Hi,

Thanks! I just ordered this (the trifold version). Hoping it will fit WITH Cooper in the back of our Outback (thought the trifold would be easier to maneuver/wrap/bungee when he's in there.

If you have a bigger car, or a free backseat (we have child seats so no room there) there seem to be a lot of options, some much cheaper (Costo has a couple under $100).

Good luck and let us know which one you pick, I'll come back and post a review once we get ours!

So our ramp arrived today and we all LOVE it. It's very sturdy, has a handle and strap to hold it closed so it's pretty easy to maneuver.

We walked Cooper over it a few times laid out flat on the floor in the house, then took it out to the yard. I had intended just to practice with getting it set up on the car, folding and putting it in, etc. but both my daughter and Cooper were excited to try it out. In he went, no problem, and then sat down and waited for us to get on the road! lol.

I think this ramp is a keeper. Thank you, Winslow, for recommending it.

We ended up making one ourselves!  My hubby is very handy  ;)! It took some coaxing for Wicket to finally go up the ramp and he was hesitant to come back down at first.  But now he seems to be just fine with it! Murphy had no problem at all, he just went right up the ramp and into the car, then looked at me like "ok mom, now what?" :D.
