I just use a couple of jack stands under the corners of the ramp.

^Thanks.
Thought about that but would have required some fall back stands, more stuff to lug along and a fair amount of adjustability for sloped sites.
I just installed a D ring tie down on each side of the ramp door and cut a chain to length for each side. Super simple and quick.

If you want it quick and simple, just use a couple of ratchet straps and prop the tailgate into a patio. Didn't cost you a cent. No modifications, just hook them up.

A fellow camper purchased a toy hauler similar to mine. His had a dedicated convertible tailgate with railing and some type of cable system. Total PITB to get all that gingerbread out of the way to get his bike in and out.

For me, just hook up a couple of ratchet straps and sit out the lawn chairs. Just don't drink too much and fall off because there is no railing.

OTOH, I've only used my ramp for that once. I usually get my outdoor rug, set up my table and grill, the lawn chairs, turn on the stereo, good to go. And I don't worry about falling off my ramp.
