I picked up a pair of chocks from harbor freight (http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcy...ock-97841.html). The price is great and the hold a Honda VTX 1300 and 1800 rock solid.

How do you have them mounted in the trailer?
Do have them bolted down?

Don't have them bolted down. Ratchet strap the rings front/back to the toy hauler tie downs to keep it from moving around. Also strap the bike handle bars like normal to the floor tie downs and the rear tire like you would on a trailer.

Sits tight.

If you can, can you please post some picks of how you have your bike tied down. I would like to use an option where I don't have to bolt them down. Plus thats a great price.

When you ratchet them down do you only use the 2 eyelets the chocks come with, or did you add 2 more?

I looked under my buddies XLR and if I remember right the sealed underbelly looked like a nylon web type material? Is there enough slack in the material to push up on that material from underneath and touch the bottom of the plywood floor? The condor mounting bracket comes with approx 5" long tapered pan head screws. If they are not long enough you could get some longer ones that would push through the underbelley material, use fender washers and then cut off the excess once tight.

As mentioned above watch out for water tanks......

I have the Condor wheel chock and it's a nice chock.

Harbor Freight does sell a similar style roll in locking chock for a lot less money but it does not have the mounting plate like the Condor..

Use the ones on the chocks, didn't add anything. Could probably get away just timing those rings to the rear tied owns since the handlebars are tied down to the front ones. With the bike in that thing is very snug.

Not a wheel chock but I use the B&W Biker Bar, its nice, due to the location of the freshwater tank and fuel cell in the Puma 27sbu this worked out to be 3 inches off of the fuel cell wall, I drilled all the way through and made some flush mount hardware so I can take it out if we go without the bike.
