Did you look at how I did it in the mini ramp plans? http://www.xtremeskater.com/minirampplans/step5.php

I have the flat bottom connected to the sides only through the surface screws (it sticks over like 1.5"), so it is quick to take apart. It isn't in the picture, but there should probably be a small 2x4 or something to the side to make the connection sturdier.

In that case, one solution would be to just screw a short 2x4 onto the side to secure the connection between the flat bottom and qp piece. I'm sure there are plenty of other ways that will also work.
