    Wheel chocks

    I am setting up my utility trailer to haul 2 tw200s and 1 Honda cr80 and was wondering which wheel chock to buy for these smaller bikes instead of purchasing larger ones

    Gerald:

    i installed this wheel chock into my enclosed recently to haul my TDub:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Certainly not the most expensive option but seems to do fine for my needs. I centered it up between some E-track, through bolted it to the trailer floor, and use soft ties on the handlebar and it seems rock solid. Time will tell if it lasts. I admittedly buy way to much from Amazon...

    I wouldn't bother buying wheel chocks myself. A sub frame in your trailer made of pressure treated lumber should do fine. I'll be building one in the spring.

    But if you don't have scrap wood handy then that's not a bad deal.

    If you look close you can see two of these on my trailer and a different one in the center. I wanted to make my own out of wood like Trail Woman mentions but the procrastination clock ran out and I had to do something quick. I think Mrs. Admiral ordered these cause I was so quick getting the wood one's made.fpalm.gif

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Harbor Freight has almost the same thing as the Amazon one for $38 and a cheapo (but functional) one for $13.
