    I use cargobuckles on the front bumper d rings and on the rear hitch safety chain holes. 4 cargobuckles. It doesn’t move and I can be strapped or un-strapped in about 60 seconds. I used the over the tire method also in my toyhauler because the d rings in the floor were known to rip out of the floor or break. I used to hook to the control arms for a more horizontal pull and to allow the suspension some flex but I think this could also be why my front lower arm bushings were toast so fast, so I changed my method.

    I bolted 3/8 D rings in front and behind each tire with steel backing under trailer wood IMG_0133.JPG IMG_0135.JPG IMG_0137.JPG floor to prevent pull thru. Got some 2 inch straps with locking snap hooks and ratchets with snap hooks from ebay all rated at 10,000 lb. went over the tires on all four and I will never haul it any other way again. I just towed it 3600 miles in one trip recently and never had to retighten my straps once. No wear and tear on straps,with protection sleeves on wear areas, nothing moves at all.On my small 10 ft trailer I run the front straps over and around the front pipe top as well to keep the sxs firmly pulled forward locked in place as well as down force on the front tires. The sxs rides on it's own suspension and the trailer's suspension making both tow better. There is 0 percent chance of this thing coming off my trailer. Me likey. ratchet.jpg straps.jpg

    Buy the way you can get the 4 pack in the last picture very similar to what I use for $57.99 for all 4 and free shipping on ebay. Pretty hard to beat !

    IMG_1127.JPG Been using the Erickson wheel chock setup for over a year now. Best method I've ever used. Just got back from a 3600 mile trip and never had any issues with straps loosening.

    I just did my aluma trailer this summer. Not gonna lie. It was painful at first to drill holes. But after a few it gets much easier. I just lined them up and measured out spacing between the ribs underneath. Used 8 bolts per 5ft piece of track, they arent going anywhere. Track is rigid as it is plus the load per bolt is all way more than the load of the machine against it. And as it's been said before, 2-3 min to load and tie down tops. I'm sure someone will say it needs more bolts, but the math doesn't lie, we've been running the same setup on another trailer that fits two machines for two seasons with no problems.

    Makes tieing other things down much better too since you have tiedown points about every 4”

    image.jpeg I tied mine down like this today... worked fine. I just put new deck boards on the trailer and screwed down the track using tek screws. I only have two of the straps with the top strap... I may buy two more. The single strap works fine for the buggy but is too light for the tractor.

    Come on by. Canada is just a handful of hours north from me. :D. And yes I did use stainless hardware and painted the track black to look a little prettier with the trailer. It was a weird greenish grey color that I didn't like so figured black would go well against the aluminum. Didn't take long to put them on with an extra set of hands, maybe 40 min which included pulling a couple short pieces off first that I did before I got the full length ones.
