Toy Hauler Tie Down Recommendations

Recommended Posts

There have been a few topics on tie downs and such. More specific to my needs, what are people using in the way of a bike tie down system in a toy hauler? Something that is easily removed so it is not obtrusive to those in the trailer once bikes are off loaded and the trailer is used for lounging and camping. I've been using three tie downs, two on the bars and one on the rear wheel. It's effective but somewhat of a pain and looks like a spider web when I have 3-4 bikes loaded.

Transverse loading in toy haulers of you have the width and no couches/beds in the way. L track on the floor at the walls, and I used unistrut for the wheels to roll up against and hold the tires in place so the bars cannot twist.. Soft ties around the fork tubes at the lower triple instead of up at the bars, lower tie point provides more triangulation and rigidity. 5 bikes fit in a 96x92 area.

there's also products like this out there if you want to load front to back and have a removable bar-

I'll be replacing my unistrut with this product and more L track on the walls soon.

You can also do Moto cinch or lock and load mounts, I just did not want any mounting points in the center of the floor that are a trip hazard. I looked at the flush mount L track as well, but just saw something that would continually collect dirt and debris. Recessed L track still have a small lip that would be above the flooring surface.

CN also try the stainless steel single point anchors. Rounded and very low profile.

A few years ago I bought the Bed Buddy from CCR Sport - https://ccrsport.com/   Even though it's for truck beds, it would still do the job in a hauler/trailer.  It can secure up to 3 bikes (3rd bike requires an extension assembly) and it has the tie down points and front wheel chocks built onto the bar.  CCR now has one that is adjustable, the ProTrack Motorack.  Other than making something in the garage that would work, this was perfect and mounts with 3 bolts.
