Pitbull Trailer restraint

Looking at purchasing three of these units to install in my 26ft toy-hauler and was wondering if any of you use them. If so could you post up pictures of your setup? Looking to get rough ideas of how to mount it the the trailer floor (without being able to access the underside) and how close I can put them together before having clearance issues. Thanks for the help!

You need access to the underside to bolt them on. How close together depends on the restraint width and your bikes width. They are fantastic pieces of equipment though. So easy to use.

I was hoping that I wouldn't need to bolt it from the bottom of the floor, my toy-hauler has a inclosed belly and it will be a little bit of a task to gain access......

There's really no other good way to bolt it down. Sucks, but once you have the base plate in you never have to touch it again unless you get rid of the trailer/restraints.

Go for it, figure out a way to get under the trailer to lock those into place, I have a Strapless Stand, similar to pitbull, and it works great.

LOVE the PB restraint. As stated already, definitely need to get under the trailer to bolt it down.




Never stop learning.

You'll have to access the same compartment put in tie down anchors anyway, unless you have endless faith in LONG e-track strips.

Well the toy hauler already has tie down anchors from the factory.......Is there any other way/system to safely secure the bikes while traveling?

You can use a Baxley chalk if you prefer not to drill any new holes.

I have always liked this system:

Motorcycle Tie Downs

Here is a review:

WebBikeWorld

I figured that with a Baxley chock to keep the front stable and this on the back, I would have a stable, redundant system. I don't own a trailer yet, so I have not been able to try it out. Worth a look?

I also have two trailer restraints in a 6x12 enclosed. You will need to bolt from underneath the trailer. My suggestion would be to load both bikes into the trailer, find out where you want them sitting, then place the baseplate. I'll take some pictures with both my bikes loaded tomorrow as were heading down to Tennessee.
