New Guy 2016 26RR

MY wife and I just ordered a 26RR, and pick it up in North Carolina next Wednesday. I guess it is our Thanksgiving present. I am sure I will be using some of the ideas I have seen on here. I have a 2015 Goldwing that has been lowered 1 1/4", so I am sure I will need a ramp mod. My wife has a Suzuki S40. I am confident I can get both bikes in, I just need to figure out the best deal for the chocks without drilling in the floor. I have seen a few of the ideas on here, but haven't figured out which one I like best yet. Chime in with your opinions if you would like.

I did not want to make new holes so I went with what was provided. Pretty much places the bike right over the axels and can still get in the bathroom and fridge.Click image for larger version

How is your chock secured?

Aluminum angle bolted to a harbor freight chock, slots cut in the end of the angle to slip over the D rings. Hook the tie downs in the d ring and keeps the angle from moving. I place cheap mats under the chick to protect the floor. Have a couple thousand miles hauling this way with no issue.Click image for larger version

I will probably "borrow" your idea. I like that setup. If it will hold a Harley touring, it will hold a Goldwing. They are about the same weight.

View loaded from the end. I no longer use the back tie downs, think it was nervous first time overkill.Click image for larger version

I used the Titan chock. It uses a small plate attached to the floor with two lag bolts. It takes about 30 seconds to remove the chock and the attaching plate is then hidden under the swivel chair. The Titan holds the bike upright and the forward and aft straps pull against each other to keep the bike/chock from moving forward or back.

The front wheel is slightly forward of the trailer rear axle so that's supposed to actually reduce hitch weight a little. Will get it weighed again next week to find out if that's true.

Here's a pic (and maybe someone can explain to me why a pix uploaded from Dropbox gets rotated 90 CCW. ????) http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...1&d=1447823515

I have the same chock but have problems getting the bike out of it while unloading. What do you do to help with that?
