Todd,
I have a U-haul trailer reserved for Thursday. I was/am concerned about that front wheel chock on the u-haul trailer itself, will the front tire and fender fit without it hitting? I noticed you have your own wheel chock, how did you mount that to the trailer? Thanks
It fits fine, no issue with fender clearance.

Bump and ditto. I was wondering the same about the chock. Is it just held in place by the straps pulling the bike against it, or is it mounted to the floor somehow?

I've trailered my Vintage 4 times with a U-Haul. Worked perfectly. I particularly like the low center of gravity and low load-ramp.

The first time I didn't have a Wheel-Dock and only used the trailer's built in "chock" - if you can call it that. It worked but required a lot of tie downs for me to feel comfortable with it.

The other times I used my WheelDock, set up, as suggested by manufacturer, with a 2x4 sheet of plywood for a base. Excellent! The last time, I added a second 2x4 sheet of clipped on plywood for an overall 8' platform. This I did because of the ribbed floor of the trailer. I simply remove the setup from trailer to garage. No fuss. Pic below of the WheelDock with 2x4 base.

Might want to try and ride it sometime. I believe it's suppose tp carry you, not you it.
I was wondering how long it would take before someone added a really useful and helpful comment to my post. I intended to show others how the U-haul motorcycle trailer could be used to tow the huge Roadmaster. Thanks TOP, you should be proud of yourself for adding to the forum with such a useful comment. I did ride to the Cape and back as reported in another post, ALONE.
When traveling long distances, on boring flat interstates with my wife, sometimes we prefer to trailer. Sorry if this is an anathema to you. If you would like to discuss this further, I will let my wife talk with you directly!

To each their own. However, glad to hear about the u-haul trailer being able to accommodate a RM. In the future might want to try riding back roads. By-the-by, I'm a biker, not a motorcyclist. Ride safe and be proud of yourself...

Only problem I have with the Uhaul trailer is the lack of front protection for the bike...stone chips, tar toss, etc...

Maybe. But it depends on what you are using to haul the trailer.
My F-150 completely protects the bike - with either a U-Haul or my Triple D Lift.
