Loaded new toyhauler

Not sure if ever introduced myself been member awhile but not sure if ever posted. We picked up new XLR Boost 37TSX13 about 3 weeks ago, replacing our Puma bumperpull toyhauler. this last weekend after adding 8 more tiedowns to garage I test fitted two Harley roadglides and our golfcart. Weíll be ready for this season bike rallyís now :-) not too tight of a fit really with room to wiggle and not hit each other when traveling. I also need to install the Onan generator thatís on the back of the golf cart. Our old one is haul golf cart in bed of truck and both bikes in toyhauler, this new one everything fits in garage!

I have the same unit, so far I'm pleased with it. We haul two 850# ATVs and assorted camping gear in the garage. I put the ATVs side by side, It's a tight fit but it works! We also have the onan 5.5 gen and it works flawless.

How much back breaking work is it to get that super glide side wards in the front?

Looks like a road glide to me.

Which ever just looks like it would be a big PIA to get the 800+ bike to go there

Yes there both roadglides, actually pretty easy to get it sideways. I ride it in and into the wheel chock then use my motorcycle scissor jack to lift rear tire to place it on a harbor freight wheel dolly. Then just push it side ways where I want it, raise back up and remove wheel dolly. Actually doesn’t take much time at all, easier than I thought it would be! And don’t have to pull my back out of wack.

Tie downs

We purchased a XLR Boost 37tsx 13 ourselves 08/18 and love it. How would you recommend assuring the additional tie downs be installed? We have several toys we need to anchor down and need additional tie downs. How did you assure no lines or tanks were drilled into?

On my toy hauler I got under the camper and felt for the stringers and measured 5 times then used a hole saw to set my new recessed d rings. They were drilled right into the studs.

I pulled the first row of tiedowns out then you can see the floor hoist. They run the length of the garage, then used a 3inch holesaw and used heavy duty construction wood screws to secure the tiedowns. I also used dab of liquid nail over the stud below the resessed tiedown. The liquid nail took up some of the space below the tiedown and the floor stud since the floor decking is 3/4Ē and the recessed tiedown only about 1/2Ē thick. Thatís what the factory did also, youíll see when you pull one to find the floor hoist. If you look close you can see the floor joists in the pic

Awesome

Thanks for the info and the pictures. Appreciate this info. We're getting ready to go to Alaska and we really want to take most, if not all of our toys. More tie downs are needed and I was somewhat hesitant to put more in without tearing into the underpinning or taking into a RV dealership. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Awesome set up.
