Thanks, the 2 bikes would just be to take up to my brothers, after that I would use it for just the ridgeback and our dirtbikes etc

I bought bigger than i thought i needed at 8.5x 20(16 ft deck, 4 ft v nose). it hauls 3 bikes, I use it for snow mobiles now, plus i can load the race truck in there too. Wish i bought it 4ft longer! Its well worth the purchase!

when it comes to space, the old adage holds true: better to have and not need than to need and not have.

You would be best off with a 7x14 trailer. Do not cheap out on chocks. Condor males one of the best. Drive in and get off the bike.

the trick to get a little more room for that is to stagger them a bit so the handle bars of one are in front of the other bars (since that's the widest point) the load front one first, back one second.
that way you dont have to place the chocks exactly center of the half for each bike, you can slide in 2 inches and it gives enough space.

But I agree, if planning on doing 2 bikes regularly get at least a 7ft wide trailer if you can afford it.

Bigger is always better, well almost always.
yep, got them staggered but still could use the extra room toward the walls

I ended up getting a new Lark 6x12 V-Nose, was in my budget and will work good for what I need it for right now. Came with a 5 year warranty. So I'm looking at wheel chocks now, found one on Amazon and looking at the one harbor freight has. Opinions on which is better? Also with either of them will I have problems with the front fender on pivot part?

The condor wheel chocks are all 200-300$ so I'm hoping someone has had luck with the harbor freight or Amazon one

harbor freight chock works just fine...I cut down the cradle to allow clearance for the fender. you don't have to use the cradle if you always have someone to hold the bike while you're strapping it down because the straps are pulling forward. using the cradle works best when strapping by your self. makes no sense to me to spend $200-$300 for a condor when a $60 chock works just fine001.JPG
