    In my standard size van I use 3 tie-down eye-lets (the center one is removable) to tie the front of the bikes as you normally would. Then I use one tie-down per bike and eye-lets at the back corners of the van floor with tie-down hooked to the bike's chassi or foot peg to pull and hold the bikes back, thus eliminating the need for wheel chocks.

    I wish I could do something like that to our E350 but we use it for passengers alot. It nice to know my Husky 610SM or CBR 954 could fit in there. Thing is I don't want to do any mods to the interior.

    Would it be possible to transport 1 or both of the above bikes with just straps to the rails the bench seats mount too?

    What kind of ramp are you using to get the bikes in?

    Is there clearance issues at the top of the doorway?

    I'm thinking that those dirt bikes are alot taller than either of mine.

    Thanks

    We're using a 6' X 12" alum ramp.
    There aren't any clearance issues with the doorway and our dirt bikes are about 51" tall.

    Here is another idea for securing a bike without a wheel chock:

    Why does the bike need to be inside?

    There is a KTM 350 on the back hauler too.

    I don't know, but three axles will limit how fast you can drive and what lanes you can drive in on the freeway.
    Makes the bridge tolls higher too. :tongue
