Install two rows of "E " Track on both walls making sure there fastened to the side posts. Center mount your wheel chock (CONDOR) or any other brand onto the cross members on the floor .
Single axles don't usually have brakes so make sure your vehicles brakes and tow package can handle the additional weight.
When your season ends and your going to store the trailer spray the entire underside with WD 40 . Plus hinges and door tracks.

Nice, I have a low hauler 7 x 14 V nose with kind of the same set up. My trailer came with tie downs in the floor and I added a few for convenience. I too have the Condor wheel chock, which works great! My only advice is to make sure the bike is centered and the tie downs are positioned so that they pull the bike forward. Four tie downs should work perfect. I haul my wives Can Am Spyder and the victory XC in my trailer. Just can't stress enough how important you tie down points are. Invest in some quality straps also. Good luck and nice trailer!

Which straps are the better ones...I have some cheap ones for my Quad and they do tend to come loose?

I know this isn't what you're asking, but...... Make sure you have enough truck not only to pull it but to stop it too! If the axle doesn't have brakes, they are cheap insurance to add. Big problem I've seen in the past is people have an adequate tow vehicle in their home area but travel to a place that they can't safely stop the rig.

The documents with the trailer should guide you as to where they intend anchors to mount. Use their info. Not what someone else tells you. They should also provide clear guidance as to loading the trailer. Contrary to what seems to be popular belief, it isn't okay to simply fill these little trailers with stuff.

Oh, that is a nice trailer and I bet you'll really enjoy it.

Really good straps post a Working Load Limit .plus look at the width of the strap and the ratchet , bigger is better Two bucks securing twenty thousand dollars is foolish.
Have D rings installed within three feet of wheel chock.
After you first secure your bike in the trailer , within the first 10 miles pull over and check your straps . Always keep kickstand down . Add conspicuity tape to sides and rear of trailer. Flashing brake lights if you can . People following you get lazy them the forget to brake and end up inside your trailer !

I have a 5x10 flat roof V nose Haulmark.

That rear door/ramp is really tough, handles the bike and my weight with no issues.
The side door comes in handy.
The roof vent that can crank open is absolutely great.
The LED overhead lighting panels with local switches and a switch by the door are great.
I like the E track and the floor mounted flush D rings both.
The quick detach chock is nice (can easily take it out when not hauling the biketo give me a flat floor), but it is not a "clamp the front wheel type" of chock, so I rig up two ratchet straps, hooked on the bottom, hanging from the ceiling, and attach them to the bike while still sitting on it. This makes it much easier and more controlled - no risk of tipping.

I added electrical brakes - not too hard to do on the 3500 lb Dexter axle.

I am dreaming of an attached tent/vestibule - not sure if I will ever actually make it.

I don't have an enclosed trailer, but I have a couple of friends who do. They are continuously wondering if the bikes are stable and upright because they cannot see them. So I would get the E tracks and definitely a Condor or Baxley chock. I use two Baxley chocks on my open Shor'landr trailer. Love them.

2013 AG-XC:
Gustafsson +2 Euro Flip
JWSpeaker 8695 LED Headlight
Ma Vic (Black Tri-Ovals/S1 Package, pull backs, derby covers,
heated seat, bag bars, shorty antennae)
Ness Rad III mirrors, Avon heated grips, Wolo Bad Boy air horn
RICZ's LD PL8 bracket and lotsa blacked out stuff
GOODY'S fork mounted lowers (3M'd)
Bag graphics & inner fairing, Bad Boys Design Peoria, AZ.

Artificial intelligence is absolutely 100% NO MATCH...............for natural stupidity!
