Motorcycle mount

I'm waiting on my forest river 27rr toy hauler to be built. And have already ordered and got my own financing through my credit union. Bank said we need the Vin # within 45 days . The dealer said we can't promise anything. I think I'll be fine there I hope I'm just a little nervous. Today talking to them I requested to have a removable wheel chock installed. And they said they will not do it and the factory will not either. Is there a option where there is one that don't need to be mounted I want one that will grab the front wheel and stabilize like the condor but they are pretty salty. I don't mind spending the $$ but I don't want to spend and then not be happy with what I spent. does that make sence? Any suggestions.? I want to be ready for this summer. .. this is my first travel trailer had a pop up now I'm trying to step up.. sorry so long and thanks in advance. ...

Harbor Freight has one on sale now for $59 that I have seen the exact same one on the internet elsewhere for $125. There is also a one item 20% coupon for President's Day sale should save another $12. I'm heading out to buy one today for my new 21RR. Happy camping.

Hmm. I'll have to take a look at that one. What ever I get I'll probably have to modify and make free standing. Since I was told not to drill holes or I would void warranty. . And thanks I can't wait to get it

If you decide to lag bolt it to the floor(which is the ONLY way I'd go) make sure you find a stud or stringer that you can tie into. If room allows, do two chocks, this way if you bring a buddy's bike your all set. If you're concerned with voiding any warranty, call the factory directly. Sounds like the dealer doesn't wanna take the time to accommodate you. If the factory pizzes and moans, the warranty is usually only 1 year anyways.

We bought a 21rr and had it for two years. I thought it was a great trailer, just a bit tight for our Polaris rzr. We bought a 27rr and while we have plenty of room now it is difficult manuevering in campgrounds, parking lots and gas stations.

Check out my posts #85 and #88 in this thread, you'll see how I mounted my chocks to be removable:

What did you do to your Hyperlite XLR today?

I also used the HF "Pittsburg" wheel chock.

Thanks guys I'm gonna run buy harbor freight and look and get ideas. The size if the trailer does consern me a bit. I wanted the 21rr or I think it was the 21wp maybe. Buy wife wanted the slide out. So if I wanted my garage I better get her her slide out. Then while sitting at dealer ordering he's going through options and now I'm getting a party deck, screen, and power everything. Next time I know to give wife the cc and send her to the mall while I make the purchase

This is what I use, works great and I didn't have to modify the floor. they'll customizr the length to fit your toy hauler.

Bolt It On, Serious Racks

Motorcycle trailer restraint would depend on your bike. If you are trailing a motorcycle with a rear hollow axle, look at the Pit Bull Restraint System.

Pit Bull Products: Trailer Restraints

The above is the system I'm going to use for my 1000cc V-Storm.

For the Harley guys you should look to B&W trailer system call the "Biker Bar"
