tie down

I am getting a cedar creek cottage. Seeing it is designed as a "destination" trailer I would think there would be an ability to tie this thing down but......no joy, I have not been able to get any info not from factory or dealer.
Any experience here?
Thanks

Pull the axles and use the spring mounts as tie down points.

Can't because insurance dictates that trailer needs to remain movable. Was thinking along the lines of bolts in concrete pad and some type of quick connect/release to frame.
Frame seems to be nicely enclosed which makes access difficult.

Tie down straps or chains are required here in FL.
Here is a link to some typical applications.
The strap hook goes on the I Beam so you don't have to drill.
There is a bolt on hook as well but I can't find a link right now

Most folks with destination units detach the hitch so they
have 2 parking spots. Gotta put that golf cart somewhere.

Look for small Beam clamps to secure to frame then rig something up off them to the ground. We have a 2014 40crs on a permanent site blocked (love it) tires still on for insurance reasons. Did you get duel pain windows and heat pump ? We are very impressed with the performance of both was in the mid 40s few weeks ago and never used the furnace.

Once in place and pull pressure applied very hard to pull loose.

Ford and Idaho that is what we call a plate dog @ work to pick up sheets of steel. A small beam clamp is like a vice that you crank to tighten. We use 2 and 5 ton at work but you can get smaller ones. Won't find them at Lowe's or HD but Grainger has them . Don't know how to post pics yet otherwise I would show you. Don't know why poster would want to tie it down that good, I'm in hurricane country (nc coast) and will pull out if one comes.

after dkscussion with local rv service dealer we decided to have tie downs at both sides of two bar and two over axles. Easy, strong and cheap.

What will you use to anchor them to the ground?
