I have a Stealth but I'll watch this thread. I have a Duc 1098S race bike and what I do is load it in front up the ramp in my Stealth WA2916, then I turn it around, facing the door, then put the door up, toss a chock down that has side stabilizers, and put the bike up on it. Then the hooks in the floor I use along with my Canyon Dancer 2, pull the chock right against the door (which is up and bolted closed) and then I tie the rear down. I'll admit, I am envious of the guys who have the Pitbull Trailer Restraint System in their trucks, where no straps are needed, simply lock the Duc in by the rear wheel stand they offer, but I don't want to bolt anything crazy to my floor as once I get there, the bike and all gear goes out, the inside is clean and tidy.

As painful as it was to do, I drilled holes and installed e-track left to right. Could not run it front to back due to lack of framing members not where I wanted. Also went under the floor with 2x6 to spread the stress across the whole floor. I used Pingle brand wheel chock with the little cast anchor screwed to the floor. Plenty if tie down options now. Hey, it's a cargo trailer and needs dependable tie down points. I don't find the hardware that offensive.
Finding the underfloor frame was a chore in itself since I have the Arctic package that hides the framing. The floor nearest the wheel wells had no wood framing so I placed the 2x6 under the lip of the I beam to keep it from pulling up at that point.
Strong and secure is better than pretty.

I am on a trip with mine as I type this. I have been using a free standing condor on this trip that is not bolted down. Well over 2,000 miles so far and not movement. The condor belongs to a friend. I'll be ordering two of them for my self. It's kept my 1100 lb trike in place and I have traveled so pretty rough roads.

We used a Condor stand on our coast to coast trip with our Harley Classic. The stand worked great with the tie downs! Our problem was the rear tire of our bike brake thru the floor of our 2016 Stealth WA2916 -just a year old & our 1st trip with the bike. Dealer was no help, FR offered very little help, and after fussing for months with both of them, we took the trailer to an independent RV Repair place and forked over $2200. to brace the underneath properly & then install a nice new laminate floor, (which is way better than the cheap wallpaper-thin crap that was already torn when we took delivery.)
We have sadly discovered, like everyone else on this board, that there us not much QC & they are built as quickly & cheaply as possible. Pretty frustrating when you plunk down a big chunk of cash for the purchase & then have to keep spending on repairs.
Now we are dealing with the kitchen sink in our slide leaking every time we move it in or out. It never ends.

WheelDock is what I use. Works great with the Road King. I just strap it down to the floor tie downs >=< and put the provided strap around front tire and two straps on back floor boards (passenger pegs) to the tie downs in floor. I have the 24 Sandstorm as well.
