I have never had a bike move, even when I hit a curb and the trailer flew in the air!
totally agree with you. I have never worried about my bike falling over with that system. dont have to take the bags off for straps , and my suspension is not crushed down for 1000's of miles heading out west.

I would like to install a biker bar to secure my motorcycle. It was suggested that I find out the floor thickness to see if it needs reinforcement. Just got off the phone with Keystone, who told me the floor is 5.4mm thick, 2 pieces of luon with foam center.

I'm no builder but the luon I know of is like paneling... Flimsy stuff that I wouldn't walk on, much less park a 800lb bike on.

So... To my questions... Does this sound correct? Has anyone installed a biker bar? Should I get a 4x4 sheet of diamond plate to put where the bar bolts through the floor for stability? Any other suggestions or comments?
BikerRN1, i put a plate under the clamp unit, and one under the floor in my last TH. When my warranty is up i will do the same to my new toy hauler.

Thanks to all. I did reinforce the floor, and the biker bar is in place. I ended up making an adjunct ramp to make the ride into the trailer (and out of... Sliding down the ramp was no fun either). Using the biker has its own set of challenges, still figuring out how to attach the bar without having to go back and forth from side to side numerous times, and the kickstand gets hung up (has to be lifted) when unloading. Gets easier every time tho, and overall, am glad I got it. Without takedown straps, my garage is still available for storage beside the bike when moving.

If you put your clamp a little further back, the kick stand won't hit and it should be high enough not to get hung up when backing out

We've been using the Bolt It On system in our toyhauler for 2 KTM 690's and two BMW 1200 GSA's for many years. The rack with chocks ties into the D-rings on the floor of the Desert Fox TH. Never had the bikes move an inch. We strap them down in front and back, back directly to D-rings.
