Quick update, not sure why, but I was unable to load the 2nd harley and pull correctly... There for I traded off the toy hauler and bought a 35ft camper. Pulled it home empty in moderate crosswinds with no problems

Holy Cow, Batman! Reading all the posts about weights and towing; techniques and tactics, it is nearly as much fun as watching a "never backed up a trailer in his life" guy, back into a site, with his wife directing (also having never done this before!)! Almost.

What kind of wheel chocks? What makes them "custom?" And where are you located?

My custom made wheel chocks are a 12 inch 6x6 post cut at an angle for two custom made chocks.

Be careful with homemade wheel chocks. I had a buddy that made his out of a 4x4 and he had his $20k motorcycle laying on his $25K motorcycle when he got to where he was going.

Get a Condor and be done...
