Installing motorcycle wheel chock inside toy hauler

We just purchased a 2017 forest river nitro XLR 29kw. I want to install a condor motorcycle wheel chock inside the toy hauler. Can I get some advise on doing so from people that have done this?
thank.
Scott

I have a Condor and have never screwed it to the floor. Works great! I do loop a strap around it so that when I rock the bike out it doesn't slide back and lets the tire out.

I also use a chock without installing it. I simply use it to keep the bike standing in place while I get the straps on it to keep it from going anywhere.

I have the Baxley LA Chock. It was a little on the high side price wise but it's built like a tank. It's nice to have it available for doing maintenance and upgrades on the bike in my building along with using it in the hauler.

Ditto. With my small toy hauler and big bike, I have a tight squeeze anyway on the sides of the bike (especially for this 60+ y.o., 6'4", somewhat fat, and inflexible body) to get my straps secured. Leaning on the side stand would make it next to impossible to get to the left side of the bike. The additional support it provides in transit is a bonus.

I also didn't want to drill holes in my floor, and I didn't want a permanently installed object in the middle of the floor for when the bike wasn't loaded.

Motorcycle wheel chock in toy hauler

I wanted a good wheel chock for our toy hauler, too, bur didn't want to drill into the floor. After a lot of research, we went with a system from Bolt - It - On. The main crossbar holds the wheel chocks, and is attached to the floor mounted D-rings in the toy hauler floor. 5 minute installation, can be adapted to multiple bikes and has mounting points for tie down straps.

Best system that I've ever used.

I had an ultra glide. I never needed a chock. It wouldn't move with a strap down. Now I have a road glide. Different animal sort of. Can't turn the handlebars to move the fairing, so when it leans over on the jiffy stand it's mighty close to the cabinet. And to get good clearance from it I have to ride it up as far to the right as I can without banging into the cabinets and such on the right. PITA. I tried using the trailer chocks but they bounce around. I strapped them, but that didn't work much better. They still moved around. I of course pad the f$%k out of the bike, but my last trip out it rubbed on the cabinets for probably a couple hundred miles (well at least a hundred).
I just ordered a wheel chock/stand from California Power Sports. It's about a hundred dollars cheaper than the Condor. Hope it's just as good. I'll need that hundred to help pay for the paint on my fairing.

I haul a Road Glide Ultra with a Condor. I do not have the chock bolted down either. I have the chock forward against the bulkhead and use 4 straps pulling forward and 2 in the rear stabilizing the bike. Been hauling this way for years and thousands of miles. Bike never moves an inch.
