    I'd recommend you buy one from the link you attached. Ramps are really hard to make and even harder to properly attach. The ones they sell look really durable and safe.

    What I did was bend two grids and use that as a ramp. It works like a charm.

    I'd recommend putting the ramp on the outside!

    Yes, I'd also buy a ramp from the link you posted.

    I also bent a couple of grids to make a ramp. Works well!

    My ramp is made from a piece of MDF (50p offcut from my local DIY store) covered in a drawer liner for traction and has corro wrapped around the base and sides to stop piggies falling off. Its attached with some cable ties and works great!

    Funny I see this, because I just built a ramp a few days age. Like others, I used two bent grids and cable tied them together and to the loft. I placed a piece of coroplast the same size as the gids and covered it with towels binder cliped on for traction. I must warn you, if your pigs have never seen a ramp they might be a bit leary of it, so I suggest leading them up with a bit of veggie to entice them.
