Hymer pull out scooter rack

We have just changed our B584 for a newer model.

The scooter rack has a built in ramp but when we tried to load the scooter, once the wheel was on the rack the scooter bottomed on the edge where the ramp fits into the rack.

Has anyone come accross this problem and if so whats the cure?

If not has anybody got any good suggestions.

Regards

A longer access ramp will lessen the loading angle.Put a Fiamma type wheel leveller under the start of the ramp.

Hi
If you look on ebay there are motorcycle/scooter racks which are arched, so that they raise the rear of the bike as it goes up the ramp. They cost around 45-50 + delivery
