A bunch more elaborate than being talked about here, but this may add to the discussion:  A guy in the campground last winter had this unit.  Not small, not cheap, but he certainly could load it alone.  He was driving a large motorhome and towing the P/U w/ an older GW loaded on this in the truck bed.  The GW was kinna heavy and made the truck squat a little.  A smaller café bike or off-road, etc. would just sit there all happy and carefree.





There is another unit in here right now that has the bike (Harley heavy) sitting across the back of a large motorhome.  Platform lays flat on the ground, ride the bike on, secure it, and hit the switch; up it goes.  It rides high enough so that the hitch and nose of his truck being towed behind just tucks in under.  Not cheap for sure! (I can get pix if anybody is interested.)

All attached to the truck at the hitch receiver.

I like the idea of the sliding/adj. mounts Levi! 

I haven't had any issues with those chocks.  I had 2 of them mounted on my moto trailer that traveled to Barber, the Thaw, and Mid-O plus more.

thanks man!

I hauled double bikes to meltdown, barber and several trips to mid o (doesn't count since its only a half hour from where I live haha)

Never had an issue with them breaking either. I think part if it is how you have the back flip up thingy for a specific wheel size. I could see it tending to break easier if the bike was sitting wedged into the hoop vs sitting on the bottom of the stand.

That thing is crazy, i imagine it works really well but would be more of a permanent fixture.

I may have to copy that design and incorporate it into my HF moto trailer build!

It's super simple, but let me know if you want any measurements or other pics of it

That's a good deal, pretty much all of the 1500,2000,2500 winches are the same with different names. I got mine open box on amazon, but I would have picked that up instead
