This morning's project was to work on a motorcycle wheel chock for my RoadStar Warrior. Like Stargazerandu, I don't want to attempt drilling through the floor for both aesthetics and concern with hitting the fresh or gray water tanks. While I really like the BoltItOn.com solution and how it uses the factory eyelets to mount the chock, the $300 price tag and the $60 shipping is just a little hard for me to swallow.
I had a 34" x 48" piece of 3/4" plywood that was painted and carpeted in my garage that was from my dad's old pickup truck that he had a topper on and used as a shelf in the back of his truck. With it being carpeted on one side, I figured it was perfect to put on the "floor side" of my plywood chock base. I put the 48" dimension between the closet next to the couch over to the kitchen cabinets. I then pushed the plywood until it rested in the corner between the closet and the bathroom wall. Since the fridge sticks out slightly, the 48" width will be too much and you will have to cut back 5-7/8" by 3 or 4" in. The carpeted piece I used already had a notch for the sidewall of the pickup that it was used in, so I cut a generous portion out to clear the fridge and removed the notch that was there.
I figure since the straps going down to the eyelets will be pulling the motorcycle forward and the wheel in the chock will be pressing forward, the edge of the fridge and the wall of the bathroom will keep the plywood from sliding forward and will spread the load out over a large area.
Next I cut 2 rectangular holes out for the eyelets to be accessed. These too when the straps are in them should help keep the carpeted plywood resting on the floor of the trailer from moving around.
I used the carpet remains from cutting off the section for the fridge and contact cemented carpet on all the edges of this plywood so that carpet would be resting against any of the cabinets and walls so they don't get marked up.
Now, once my wheel chock arrives, I will have to test load the bike to determine where I want to mount the chock onto this plywood base and then use carriage bolts from the underside (carpeted side) and make sure they are recesses (or covered with more carpet after installing) so that the heads of the bolts don't rub and tear up the floor.
Below are some pictures of the plywood base. More pictures to follow once my wheel chock comes in.
Here is the top side with it in the trailer. Note the base rests against the bathroom wall and edge where the fridge sticks out.
This is a picture of the bottom side showing the 3/4" plywood completely covered in carpeting (including edges) for resting on the floor of the trailer:
