Ok, thanks. Going to install mine tomorrow unless I find I like the ones you have better.

Went to harbor fright and bought same mount u did. Did a little mod. On it . Took eye bolts off and bolted bar longer on top and drilled holes and installed eye bolts to attach stand to floor. Then when I run bike up the mount doesn't move. Then I put my straps down to tie downs to strap my classic down . Not sure if this is what U are doing.

update and some info please.

it has been awhile, so here is an update.. harbor freight choks work well. Now for the complaints not with the choks but with the camper. blown tire less then 300 miles in. warranty good. need a new tv or tv stand they don't match, lastly and hopefully someone else has this problem, were I have been driving the bikes up the ramp it appears and feels like the center of the ramp has a valley in it as if the weight of the bikes is compressing whatever the ramp is made of.. do I have a junk ramp door or are they just this poorly constructed dealer is looking into it.

Our Pingel cjocks have worked great but we have other issues as well. The rails on both sides of our tt were spliced together poorly so when it rains the water doesn't drain off the end it drains where the splices are. One of them is in the middle of our awning and it leaks there. We have an indoor speaker that is shorting out and the front screen door does not shut tight all the way around so bugs can get in, this is after trying to do any adjustments I can. Our 2005 Chevy Silverado that we put new shocks on 2 years ago that are designed for a load sits pretty low in the back end too. We have 2,800 pounds to work with after our tt is hooked up but even dry it sits a bit low. I did move my hitch up one notch to no avail and also raise my jack up as far as it will go when and went a link further on equilizer bars and this didn't help. Going back to dealership with all of our issues when camping season is done here.

Yup same exact thing happened to me. FR replaced my door under warranty. Unfortunately it is too soon to tell if the new door is any better. I've only loaded my bike one time since.

You may have 2800lbs to work with in your tow capacity, but the tongue weight on our toy haulers is very high compared to a traditional travel trailer of the same weight. Install air bags to help the rear suspension and to level the load

I had a very similar problem and I added a leaf spring. That made all the difference in the world and was a lot cheaper.
