with proper securement of the tractor, both are fine, that being said there are pro's and cons to each, wood offers better traction when loading rubber tired or steel wheel tractors, but needs the be treated regularly, and replaced once in awhile, steel lasts and lasts with only paint if you want a nice looking trailer, but steel offers less traction and when wet or loading a steel tired or tracked tractor is slippery and i mean badly, ramps are your choise and best based on what your use is, if you are only hauling 1 machine, fixed is good as you dont have to lift or store the ramps, but unless the ramps are built to slide side to side to compensate for different width tractors detachable ramps may be better, if you have a deckover trailer or even a tag along trailer having a dovetail on the rear of the trailer makes it much less scary to load as the loading angle is less, and longer than a straight trailer bed, make sure the ramps are heavy enough for what your loading, but they dont need to be way overbuilt, if all your hauling is a Ferguson tractor you dont need ramps that will hold up a d-6 cat, ive got a pair that will , and what a general pain to use they are, just to heavy to handle with 1 person, my other trailer has slide out ramps and is much easier to use for smaller tractors, pickups ect
