Secure your wheel chock on plywood.

Several years ago I got a new to me Weekend Warrior Toyhauler. I didn't want to drill through the floor either. Picked up a sheet of 3/4 plywood, mounted a Harbor Freight wheel chock to it using flat anchor nuts and have been using the same ever since. Tighten up the screws every once in a while and cut down the plywood to 24" wide to lighten the load of moving it some. Had a 1995 Honda GL1500 tied down for Thousands of miles and never had a movement issue. Used the tiedown rings that were in the trailer from the factory.

Not sure what bike you are tying down but saw something interesting for Harley owners from B&W Hitch yesterday in Daytona. They call it the "Biker Bar". Below is a link of you can just google and it comes up.

For dirtbikes in my enclosed trailer I designed a little system that works great. I have hauled bikes hundreds of miles without a bike ever even budging. I used harbour freight bar clamps and some pipe from home depot. The trick is adding a hook on the bottom of the top clamp by drilling a tapping a hole to add a socket head screw to engage into the foot peg. It works great without the hassle of straps..

The pipes are screwed to reverse mounted base plates under the 2x8. To remove you just unscrew them. For small bikes you just use a set of shorter pipes.

I had the Biker Bar in my toy hauler, it works really good, highly recommended. It comes with some underfloor mounting pads that make it removable but they don't work very well on a trailer that has insulation so I made some custom mounting bolts for the floor so I could remove it, basically a 5/8" rod with a rod couplings and a washer welded to one end and bolted through the floor, I also used a incentive of c-channel underneath and sandwiched everything between the plywood, you need access to the underside either way.
