need help with getting wheelchair out of mobile home

heidihoJuly 7, 2011

I built a wheelchair ramp at front door of mobile home that I need to use for mother but I can't figure out how to go over the lip of the door frame for easy outdoor access. It's about 3" high.

The door has to close and if I build an incline it would have to be set back far enough for the weight of the chair and would have to be screwed down in order to go over the door frame right? Or can I somehow make something portable that I could fold up when not in use.Not sure how to do this.

I've done several home projects but this one has me stumped.

Thanks for any help anyone has to offer.

A small portable ramp with two sides is routinely used to bridge obstructions that cannot be removed.
