Bikerbars in a Spartan?

Anyone install B&W Bikerbars in a Spartan toyhauler? Specifically a 1242X? I was wanting to get them but a quick look underneath and there are 2 fuel tanks and the fresh water tank. I just wondered if it worth pulling down the underbelly to investigate more.

Take a look at Bolt It On Rack Systems – Motorcycle transportation racks for toyhaulers, vans, and trailers
I use it for dirtbikes, but they have a wheel chock for motorcycles.
I didn't want to drill holes or drop tanks.

RV, how do you like the Spartan? They're on our short list.

We have a Spartan also and this last trip the wheel chock moved side ways about 20 degrees and the tire was 1/2 out of the front cradle. Some really rough roads in AZ, I just had it setting on the floor, I'm going to remove the rubber ends and try some industrial strength Velcro...

CoMaddMax,
I have transported my Street Glide, my buddies Ultra and my wife's Fatboy many times, not all at once, just two at a time, my easily thousands of miles, and only had the Fatboy slip once. What I do, like you were thinking, took the feet of the chocks, but I just place it on the floor and ride the bike in, then before I strap it down, I put a 4x6 and 5/4 board on top of it under the frame of the bike. Then I pull the front down just tight enough so the frame comes down on the blocks and I cant kick them out. Then I put a strap through the back wheel to two D-rings in the back and put just enough tension that its pulling it back. For the Fatboy, since it has solid wheels, I tie out from each swing arm to the D-ring. So I have the front pulling down and slightly forward, the frame is solid on the blocks so the suspension isn't bottomed out and the back is being pulled back.
But I am looking at the Biker Bars just for ease and time saving.

I use the Condor Chock, for my street glide. Itís rock solid. But I like the block under the frame idea, too.

My toy hauler is an XLR 23kw.

I use the harbor freight version of the condor type chock and it works well. Just the biker bars would be so much easier and faster.

I have been hauling my Harleys in my Spartan 1032 (love my Spartan) for 4 years....and thousands of miles across the western US. I use a Condor Pit Stop....no bolt down, no blocks of wood. I simply stand the chock fully forward...right against the front wall....roll my bike in....then have 2 straps pulling forward from the rear foot peg mounts (keeps the bike in the chock and the chock fully forward tight against the wall)....2 front straps on the fork tubes (very lightly compressing the shocks)....and then 2 on the saddle bag guards counter pulling to the rear tie down rings for stability. I have hit bumps that sent the trailer airborne....and the bike has never moved a centimeter. When I take the bike out...no mounts, boards, bolts, etc. to trip over...no drilling required.
