Hi, thanks guys.
The trailer is a 5'x8' I use it for my lawn cutting biz.
But I got it at Tractor Supply brand new for $600 something.
it came with a steel mesh floor only, but I put 1"x6"x8' pressure
treated right over the mesh for about $70.00 from Homedepot.
The bike fits perfect on it with about 4 inches to spare near
the gate. I keep it centered straight up, straight forward.
I only used 2 rachet straps, wraped and hooked around the
handlebars, and then hooked to the angle iron that is welded
to the side of the trailer near the front. Rachet down tight,
but don't bottom out the forks. Bike don't move at all.
Of coures ya gotta use common sence and don't go
flyin' over big bumps and stuff. And leave the kickstand
down just in case. I've done it twice like this now and
never had any problem. No rubbing, no scratches, no nothin'.
Hope that answers your question. Good luck!
