Motorcycle hauling

Okay I'm a bit frustrated right now. I went to work on the Camper tonight to get ready for our bikes. I just noticed I didn't get a center d ring in the back, only in the front. I got back home and pulled up the videos on the unit and yep there is a center d ring in the back. Now I've either got to install one or figure out something else. Ughhh

Screw in some Etrack from Tractor supply with lag bolts. Or, if you talking about street bikes and not dirt bikes, check out B&M Biker Bars, no need for straps. Just installed these in mine, works great. Ride in, lock up and go.

Our camper came with the extreme weather package so we've got a barrier and I'm afraid to tear into it. We have street bikes and I just saw the video on Biker Bars and those look great. I've got to figure out the vapor barrier before I purchase anything. Thanks for the info.

If it is like my buddy's XLR, you can push the bolts thru the barrier . Try pushing up on the under layer to see if you can feel the flooring.

If not, (like mine), cut a joke in the liner where the plate goes, mount the plate , then tape the insulation and liner back up.

Easier than you think .

As the buddy referenced here, I can confirm that what you'll probably feel underneath the liner is a layer of foam insulation board that you drill through (along with the plywood) from above, the bit just pokes down through the liner. Easy peasy.

Very easy... especially back there. Sounds like that could be a warranty issue.

The backer (for where the d ring should have been) is 45" from the ramp door to the front edge. There is a 16ga pc of steel 7" wide 21" long. If you mount the d ring on the front edge of that you should be ok.

Obviously that d ring should be there. Contact our warranty department so we can get you handled. PM me if you have any questions.

They are sending me a D ring and a floor diagram to assist me with the install. Hopefully it will all go smoothly. Thanks to all on this forum. You are a wealth of knowledge. Now, how many of you have installed Condor Chocks in your XLR? I'm going to install this weekend and am just thinking if the floor is marine plywood and the garage floor I should be able to screw in with larger bolts and attach my plates without messing with the weather package.

I have the Condor and only recently lagged it into floor. I used two 1" lag with washers and it holds. My Condor never moved with my system of tie down, but I had an issue pulling the bike up and out, so I fastened down. I push the Condor to the wall slightly offset to street side; I fasten using the 2 holes. I could get a photo for you, but there ain't much to see.
