I got to ride it in the woods the other day.  A very cool bike.

A buddy of mine has a harbor freight unit hes going to sell me for 150. 

If you can, repaint the metal with some of that roll-on, do-it-yourself bedliner stuff (probably $20 at the auto parts store).  That should make is last and look decent for a while.

I ordered one of those fancy clampy wheel chocks.

They are pretty sweet and reliable 99% of the time; just be sure to add provisions for tie down attachment points.  Belts and suspenders for sure, but for that 1% time you will be glad you also have tie downs on.

I ordered one of those fancy clampy wheel chocks.  I also re-read this thread an saw Chris's suggestion of putting angle iron under the plywood and bolting through that.  I will prob. do something like that for extra strength.

Do you guys bolt your wheel chock right to the plywood?

Good call, and yes that is how I have mine set up

That bri mar trailer looks nice.  Disappointed in the used trailer market.  Lots of crap.  Wish i had my old job and its access to fab. equipment.

Yeah I agree with that.  Lots of, even mostly, junk for sale.  Was that way last time I bought one also.

I eventually found a fully assembled, used, brand new HF trailer for like $200 though.
