rv-pro.com May 2021 • RV PRO • 59 absorb road shock into a suspension system, thus making for a smoother ride. From suspension system upgrades, the company expanded into other metal fabrication, such as chassis modification and the uplift market. Today, MORryde is a prominent metal fabrication company in North America. "He (Moore) just kept looking for other applications," says Enfield. "That led to school buses and motorhomes and travel trailers." Today, under the direction of the senior Moore's two sons, Bob, Jr., and Rodney, the company offers accessories for Jeeps, transit buses, motorhomes and towables. Leading the way in the latter category are products such as rubber pin boxes, gooseneck adapters, and suspensions. One of its more popular items for both OEMs and the after- market is television mounting systems. "We have a drop-down TV mount that's popular in the toy hauler market," says Enfield. "Typically, they put the TV up very high in the back of the garage area because they're pulling toys in and out. With this mount you pull on the chain and the mount drops down, lowering to the viewing height. And, when you're done, you can put it back and lock it in place." Other popular items MORryde makes for the towable market include steps, cargo trays and reel spoolers. However, nowhere is the company's ability to solve users' prob- lems more evident than in its development of the Zero-Gravity Ramp Door. An OEM standard for many models of toy haulers, it can be paired with the company's Park 'n Play Patio Rail Kit and the aftermarket PatioEX inflatable tent system, designed to not only make the movement of toys in and out easier, but to extend the off-the-ground living space, as well. Focus on Simplicity The development of the Zero-Gravity Ramp Door followed as bumpy a path as an off-roader could appreciate, for all its market popularity today.

Many RV makers install MORryde's ramp doors on their toy haulers.
