flooring thickness

just bought a 2014 nitro xlr 24fqsl this year. I am looking to add some extra tiedowns in the kitchen area so I can transport my two Harleys. does anyone have any idea how thick and what kind of material was used. are there any suggestions on what kind of tiedowns to get.

Flush mount D- ring style with a reinforcement plate under the floor to spread the force...1/4 min. thickness plate.

Thanks. do you know how thick the floor is. Not sure if I can use that method since that is where my water tank is. Any other possible suggestions that will hold a Harley up

Thought about that but I didn't want to be tripping over it all the time. Might not have a choice though

Although we do not have the same unit as you. The floor in our 2014 XLR 27 is only 3/4" I used the E track and self taping screws in our garage and it works quite well for our needs, we are only hauling dirt bikes. I added some additional strips plywood under the floor with some silicone between, where the screws went through the floor and not into the frame just for additional holding.

This is a question, not a statement --

Aren't the tie-downs supposed to be fastened to the frame?
