tying down in u-haul

was thinking of renting those little box toyotas or whatever
they are for taking the bike to the track. i need some ideas
on what/how to secure it. i know a chock would be ideal
but cant bolt one up in a u-haul.

You can make a chock out of 4 pieces of wood and some screws and just lay it in the trailer. It works as long as you tie the bike forward with some Ancras

Yeah they are.


Screw the chock to the floor and then take it out when you return it. They don't look for that kinda stuff, they will not even know unless you ask.

Tony and i tried that a few years ago, an enclosed trailer, and the floors and very slick and he didn't trust it.
