Good ramps make loading your ATV safer and easier
Sturdy, reliable ATV ramps are something that every rider should have in their arsenal. Trying to load your quad onto a truck or trailer without ramps is needlessly difficult and risky, and even if you’re lucky enough to live where you ride, inevitably you’ll eventually need to load your machine up to take it in for servicing or head off in search of new trails.
Thankfully, there’s no shortage of well-built, durable ATV loading ramps on the market, most at a price point that’s easy to swallow. Granted, that means you’ll have plenty of choices to make, the most important of which is material. Aluminum ATV ramps have come to dominate the market these days, thanks to their light weight and easy deployment, but there are still steel options out there should you prefer that reliable, time-tested metal. And there are other considerations you’ll have to make, too, such as ramp length, weight rating, whether you need hinged folding ramps, whether you need contours to provide extra clearance, etc.
Having trouble getting started? That’s why we’re here: to serve as a guide to some of the best, most highly rated ATV ramps on the market. We’ve rounded up a handful of our top picks, encompassing both steel and aluminum ATV ramps, folding and solid designs, and a range of price points, all to help you select exactly the right set of ATV loading ramps for your needs. What’s more, we’ve made sure that each and every one of our picks can support a minimum of 1,500 pounds, so these should be able to accommodate most UTVs, as well. Read on.

Reese Explore 80” Steel Centerfold Loading Ramp
There are some very good reasons why steel has long been the backbone of American industry; it’s strong, durable, inexpensive, and far more resistant to fracturing or cracking than aluminum. If you’re looking for a simple, reliable set of steel ATV ramps that won’t let you down, this 80” Reese Explore Centerfold Loading Ramp is just the ticket. Its galvanized coating gives it a protective barrier against rust, and not only does it fold for easier storage – it even separates into two half-length loading ramps for a bit of extra flexibility. Each ramp has a maximum load rating of 800 pounds, so a pair of these should be able to support just about any ATV or UTV you throw at it.
Broozer 84” Car/ATV Truck Trailer Ramps
Looking for maximum weight capacity? For the money, these Broozer aluminum car and ATV ramps are the best we could find, and at a combined total weight rating of 6,000 pounds, they’re absolute overkill for the average ATV or UTV – perfect if maximizing safety is your thing. To achieve that weight capacity rating, these ramps have been designed without a hinged folding joint, so you’ll need to figure out a way to stow 7 feet of heavy-duty aluminum ramp, but their lightweight aluminum alloy construction helps ease the burden of transporting them.
Rage Powersports Black Widow Aluminum 7’6” Arched ATV Ramps
If foldability is something you can’t live without, these Rage Powersports Black Widow aluminum ATV ramps make for a solid, inexpensive solution. Combined, they just meet our minimum weight capacity restriction of 1,500 pounds, but they’re among the most portable ATV loading ramps out there, each one weighing in at just 14.5 pounds and folding down to around four feet in length. What’s more, they’re arched for maximum clearance, for both your truck and your ATV or UTV, and the rungs are serrated for excellent traction in all conditions, whether covered with rain, mud, or snow.
Cargo Smart Hybrid S-Curve Centerfold Ramp
The Cargo Smart Hybrid S-Curve Centerfold Ramp is, simply put, one of the most advanced, well-designed ATV loading ramps we’ve ever seen. The S-curve design reduces the incline grade at both the top and bottom of the ramp, with a large radius to ease loading and unloading even for low-clearance items – perfect for if you ever have to load with a flat tire or busted suspension. The ramps utilize a proprietary construction consisting of aluminum and a composite material, resulting in a ramp that’s uncommonly strong for its weight and size, and delivers superb traction for loading and unloading in inclement weather. There’s even an illuminated version with built-in LEDs for better low-light visibility.
Larin Folding Steel ATV/Truck Ramp
Another great steel option, what sets these Larin ATV ramps apart is their dual-purpose functionality; not only can they be used to load and unload ATVs and UTVs up to 1,500 pounds in weight, but folded, they can also serve as 6” elevation ramps for your car or truck, with an impressive 5,000-pound combined weight capacity. The tri-fold design means that a 78.5” long ATV loading ramp can be reduced down to a 38” elevation ramp in seconds, making them very stowable. Also, each of these ATV ramps features a convenient carry handle for transport.
Yutrax 78-Inch Tri-Fold Aluminum UTV/ATV Loading Ramps
If you’d rather not fiddle with trying to align a pair of ramps, this Yutrax 78” tri-fold aluminum ATV loading ramp is perfect for you. Rated at up to 1,750 pounds and weighing in at just 32 pounds, this stowable, single-piece ramp measures 50 inches across, so there’s virtually no chance of it shifting and going crooked while you’re trying to load or unload. It’s welded – not riveted – together and uses enclosed rectangular side rails for extra strength and stiffness, and folds down to just 17.5 inches wide, although you will have to account for its full 78” length even when folded.
