National Fleet Products gives Ford Transit users versatile solutions

by Today's Trucking

National Fleet Products has introduced a fold-down Van Step and under-deck Hide-A-Ramp for Ford Transit users.

The Van Step provides access in and out of cargo vans, and the Hide-A-Ramp slides out from under its integrated deck housing to provide van entry. Both products are initially designed for the Ford Transit platform, with versions for additional makes and models to come.

The 22-inch-wide, aluminum Van Step folds down to provide three-step entry and egress from the rear. The step nests in 8.5 inches of space inside the rear doors.

The Hide-A-Ramp’s unitized, no-drill floor-mounting concept utilizes the Ford Transit’s existing factory anchor points and nests between its wheel wells. The top of the ramp’s housing rises six inches above the Transit’s original deck and becomes a floor surface that can accommodate loads on hand trucks and small wheeled vehicles, up to 2,500 pounds.

Components of the ramp and housing combined weigh 350 pounds. The 48-inch-wide ramp has a flat surface edge-to-edge with raised traction ridges and no side rails and has a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds. Both products come with a three-year limited warranty.
