Steve, lot's of options, but yes, I use a Condor Motorcycle Chock that I originally used on my flat bed trailers. I do not use the through-the-floor plate in the Outlaw and instead use a rubber garage mat (like in the video below) and with a 4 x 4 block between the chock and the door frame.

There are cheaper models out there, but I stayed with my Condor because of it's ease of use.

That's the one I use bolted to the floor on the right side with the front touching the right side of the door frame. Works good for my BMW K1200LT. Drive right up, ease tire into chock, put down side stand, use 2 tie downs for front, two for rear.

I use these for mounting my chocks 90192A132 which is a hardened insert for the wooden deck in the garage. With these installed I now have a 3/8-16 thread with which to install and remove the two chocks I have mounted in about 2 minutes without worrying about stripping a wood screw thread or having to crawl under to remove a nut.

The chocks you show are also what I use and once I ride up into it I simply get off without putting down the side stand and then attach my straps. It makes it easy and a one man job.

Thanks, fellow cool moto-dudes!!!

I spy with my little eye...THAT"S A BUELL in the second tent featured in the video

That's my "NICE IDEA FOR OUTLAW GARAGE!"

While the newer ones were cool, there's nothing as sweet in my opinion as the tube frame Buells. And My S3T was the premier of that brand (before H-D closed the line)

We love this table setup - we like to entertain so this would be a great working idea for us.

Anyone have any ideas on where to purchase something like this? Would be awesome to have a fullsize dinning area.

Also does anyone know where a great place to buy a screen for the back would be? How would one attach?
HI yes i did this two fold down couches that double as beds for the kids but a full size dining table when needed. i bought them fron newhouse rv furniture. work great just went from cali to florida and back with 9 people the kids usned it to sleep and we used it for meals. Tony

I have thought about this too...GREAT IDEA to avoid the need for an external ladder.

Escape hatches were common in the bunk area of Class "C" RV's for many years (don't know if that's still true).

Please post what you find...I think there are ribs in the roof that will need attention, so your results would be very helpful for others.

I'm guessing you're looking for a way out other that the escape window that's already up there.

Is that what that Tiny thing is?
It looks like I would have to destroy it to get out it.

I want to add the escape hatch to make it easier to climb up there and chill. or inspect roof and other stuff up there.

Roof Hatch? Wow!

Interesting idea that would make access to the roof a little easier. How do you plan to install the darn thing?

There are plenty of class B / C rigs with the roof hatch, so I suppose it would just take tracking down the part numbers to obtain one, but I would think you'd have to really research with Thor the construction details of the roof to insure you could actually install it in an area where it would work. The only one's I've seen have been exclusively in the garage area - for some reason - always on the drivers side.

OK, I see now, you want a roof access hatch

The upstairs drivers side window is an actual "escape" hatch.

Ahh, I see
I thought you were talking about that vent in the middle of the upstairs

Yea, I'm leaning towards the one like in the Fun Mover. It looked like a secure entry.
I wouldn't want someone to be able to kick their way in from the roof.

Do you guys think it is feasible to have a Portable Inflatable Hot Tub/Spa
in the garage?

Found one Here; link for under $600.

I wonder about the weight and maybe the steam?
