  • Wheel Chock

    Due to the cold temps I decided to use my buddies enclosed trailer to haul my R* to Eureka Springs meet-n-greet. While there rsokie and catnaper2 had expressed interest in the wheel chock I was using.

    It was a WheelDock unit. They're pretty proud of their units but are very nice. They lay flat to pull in and out so they're very easy to unload from.

    Just figured I'd put this in a thread in case anyone else wanted to chime in on how they move their bikes when not riding.

    I have been using a condor chock for a while now . my friend has used their cycle carrier for damage free moves with his tow trucks for nearly 20 years now.

    btw they were a bit cheaper on ebay

      That's interesting on the tow feature. That would be handy for that business. I've seen the Condor chocks at the local Harley dealer. I guess for apples to apples comparison, the WheelDock is like the Condor Pit-Stop/Trailer-Stop in that they both can be used on a trailer or free standing in the garage. In that case $ for $ they are pretty comparable.

      The Condor is more adaptive for different wheel/tire widths however.

        Thanks for sharing Brad.
        The chocks I've put on our trailer haven't been used very many times as Karen and I have been riding to destinations way more often than trailering.
        If we switch to an enclosed trailer at some point or maybe a toy hauler, I'll probably look into the "WheelDock". After watching you load your bike, I think it's a home run!
        When they say you're getting older...remember, that's better than the alturnative!

            Had one of these for years works great with the tire strap, also have option to buy shim pvc blocks if you have a skinny 21" front tire.

              I had the China freight ones before. it's a b**** to get the bike out but it stays put . My toy hauler came with 4 bike something or another. That have two bolts that slide into plates on the floor. they are okay but the bikes lean left and right due to the taper of the upper tire restraint. China freight ones you could forget to strap down bikes and prolly be ok.

                I just got my first Toy Hauler, prepping for retirement. Did several great trips this summer. I put the Harbor Freight chock in and have no complaints. Can be a bitch to get out, but it is certainly locked in place when in.

                  I found a half inch speed nuts and put them in the floor up from The bottom after doubling the plywood for strength and use little screws to hold them in place. that makes short order screw gun or impact
