I will check which holes I mounted the chock to when I can. Note that if it is done correctly your front wheel will be elevated when the bike is set. Also, I had to buy some extra washers for the loop bolts for extra security. You will see what I am talking about when you install it. the rear sets perfectly with one ratchet strap, but then again I don't have rear pegs on my bike.

Use the bolt with stabilizing washer instead of the pin when you secure the carrier to your car. make sure you slide the bolt through the smaller bolt hole instead of the larger pin hole. also use the stabilizer piece with the several stabilizing bolts

There's an installation video online somewhere

FYI--my first shipment package was destroyed by UPS. If that happens to you don't worry, discount ramps will replace it asap

check all your bolts every now and then.

I use a dolly to cart my fully assembled piece around if I need to move it from garage to driveway. You can carry it, but it does weight about 100 pounds assembled.

The Pit Bull system is the way to go! Been using that for a few years now.

Thanks Dallas! I put this together and through trial and error got to the same front position. I have it one forward from the position that you have right now. But last night we figured out that to keep the weight balanced it should be where you put it.

For the rear front chock (movable) position, we were going to put that one 2 notches back from where you have it.

Originally, we had it set up so that the front and rear were further apart from each other. But the rear was under the fairing. When we moved them closer together, now the front wheel sits against the front chock and slightly on top of the rear (movable) chock. It seems like the perfect distance. I just need to move both back so that the weight is balanced now.

But I'm really curious about you having them closer together than I'm putting them. I'll post some pictures once I get them set up. I'm trying to figure out if

I should have taken pictures of how the fairing was on the chock when they were too far apart.

BTW, I ordered 2 of the tyre fix straps. They aren't cheap. But they look like they'll make the setup much more solid and easy. Here's a couple videos about the tyre fix straps if people are interested:

My setup has worked fine for many trips, but don't know if my chock setting is ideal or not. Maybe send a pic to discount ramps and ask them

Just remembered we had this trailer thread as a segway to @Jon trailer cover question:

I'm beginning to look for an enclosed. That's definitely the way to go with space for gear, tools etc.
Here's my basic wish list:
Capacity to haul 2 bikes: 6x12, 7x12
Torsion axle for a smoother ride
Preferably made in aluminum
V-Shape front end

Be interesting to view any additional suggested features and accessories deemed necessary.

Wow! Well that's a HUGE topic!! Had a 4 place went to a 2 place. In this area, Neo Trailers give you the best bang for the buck! All aluminum, V-Nose, Slant Top is their standard unit. Mine is the stock 6 x 12 trailer with a top vent and a ramp door. $3200. I purchased the 4 shelves at the front, and the tool box is from Harbor Freight. (it's a add on end piece for one of their big tool boxes) Everything else I made out of aluminum strips. Not the best pics of the inside, I have to find you some better ones.
