Here is a pic of the hardware in place. You can see it is nearly flush to the floor, so the carpet lays flat.

I have the 305V16, I fabricated a bracket that bolts to the existing three tie downs then I bolt the General motorcycle stand to it. Haul two Harleys parallel with no problem. The big thing is it is totally modular as for it works with the bikes then I unbolt a stow everything out of the way to lay the carpet down. Yes it takes a few minutes to assemble/disassemble; however, the peace of mind when traveling and the entire floor free of any trip hazards. Can send pictures, if desired, for we are camping in it now with motorcycle unloaded and will have to assemble for a picture. Let me know if interested.

No worries! I see you have a beautiful toy hauler! Did you get the party deck?

Hello,

I inserted 3 pictures. As you can see it is very simple. Items used: (1) 2" x 8' angle iron, (3) 1/2"x2 1/2" bolts, (4) 5/16"x3" bolts, and (2) General motorcycle Stand {{Motorcycle Stand/Wheel Chock, Item #97841, Sale: $64.99}}. Note: My pictures only show one motorcycle stand for the other side mirrors the left. I'm sure you can understand. Also, the front crossbar on the motorcycle stand has bolts. They were long enough so I just drilled through angle iron. The motorcycles stand upright and with minimum strap pull down, thus saving stress on shocks. Not you may not have the room like I do; however, with this simple bracket I can relocate it to the next set of tie-downs in the garage. I just did not want to compromise the floor by drilling holes plus I wanted the full 8'x16' garage. This gives me the peace of mind when traveling and by disassembling it the stand and items can easily be stowed out of the way when camping. Hope that helps. Special note: the mating of angle iron and tie-downs. This is so when towing the flat part of angle iron softens the weight transfer (forward movement) during say a hard braking situation. Additionally, with proper restraint of the rear of the motorcycle the bracket may move but it should be a soft movement. This setup as served me well for 3000 miles and I see no reason as of yet to be unhappy. Hope you find this helpful.

Opps. the General motorcycle stand/wheel chock was bought at Harbor Freight. When they are not in the TH, I used them in the shop to do work or service on motorcycles. Well worth $70. Have tried to justify making my own design but time and materials out weigh the $70.
