28 WP

I have the 28WP toy hauler, this is my second year with it and have yet to load my Street Glide in it. I will be in the spring. But unsure if I can use the rings in the floor to stablize it, for those with heavy bikes how are you securing it to the floor (without drilling something into the floor)?

GSlone, I use the rings, and have hauled my SG, my wifes Fatboy & my buddies Ultra (not all at the same time - variations of 2 of each...) anyway, I use Harbor Freight "condor style" wheel chocks for the front wheel then tie the bottom of the handle bars down to the front rings & then put a strap through the rear wheel to the back rings. Held my SG & my buddies Ultra solid with no issues. We hauled them about 3,000 miles so far. For my wife's Fatboy, since it has the solid wheel, I tie from the swing arm to the rear rings. those rings are pretty solid.
Good luck, happy trails.

I want to thank all for you input. Just ran from southern MD to Toms River. Need to unhitch tomorrow for the first time. Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

Beaver tail. I like that description. I've tried to explain it before but your explanation is the best.

I load my '15 Limited with the trailer not connected to the truck. I jack the tongue jack up much higher than the hitch level. This made getting the bike over the floor/ramp threshold much easier. I think mine would bottom out, or darn close to it, with the trailer on the truck. The first couple of times made me nervous, but I have a good system now. I cut a 2x6 in half and put a section on each side of the bike on the ramp so I can leave me feet down all the time. I use the friction zone of the clutch to control speed going in, and the front brake going out.

I put e-track down on the floor so I can change the strap locations for the bike and the atv's.
