Steve,

I'm hauling two Harleys to Sturgis but have not done had even a single bike in it yet, so can't offer anything so far.

Thanks Steve , I appreciate it and will try that.

PH,
Found out years ago that keeping the bike under a small 10x10 pop-up keeps the dew off in the morning or the rain over night. I have seen people actually use a regular tent that they just zip up at night as well...

Dennis,
The biggest suggestion I can make is have the bikes as far forward as possible. I had my bike just inside the ramp and had to pull over 5 miles down the road to move it forward to the bathroom wall (about 2-3 ft). This helped with the "sway" or "light front end" on the truck. I did not have much gear in the camper so I could not transfer much weight to the bedroom or living area.

FYI...

Slick130,
Don't have the trailer at home to measure but I'm guessing 7 feet?

Karl,
I had learned in my old pop-up that the less the scissor jacks are out the more stable the camper. So now I carry 6x6 and 2x6 boards to keep the distance the scissors have to come out to a minimum. I also got these chocks that seem to help with the camper "movement" as well.
