I have owned a 2018 240urs for a couple years now. My fiance and I have really used it a lot. I noticed the vinyl floor was developing wrinkles where both the rear and front wheel of my heavy motorcycle contacted the floor. To be clear the subfloor was unharmed, just the vinyl floor covering. I paid a visit to a friend's heavy duty truck body shop. Measured the wall under the window in the garage and also the line from the ramp to this. He cut me two pieces of diamond plate steel and I screwed them down in basically a T on the garage floor. Now both wheels contact steel and no damage to the floor covering. I haul an Electra Glide Ultra Classic that weighs almost 900#. BTW this trailer has served us well from our home base to locales all over the lower 48.

My ultra classic has traveled in many states tied in my 240urs. You have to turn the front wheel right but it will go and leave you maybe 6 inches clearance to the ramp when closed. I hope you have the ramp extension and metal stands for yours. Attached a pic of mine tied down in the garage and two little kids climbing on it. Last year we went to Florida twice, Grand Canyon in May and Sturgis in August.

Rsnow,
When you said " I hope you have the ramp extension and metal stands for yours." Why is that? I have a 2018 240URS and a 2015 Road Glide Special....So I appreciate the picture! But I know mine did not come with an extension or metal stands. Do you have a link for shopping?

Thanks!

I don’t have ramp extension or stands but mine is an ‘06, before they put those on. One thing I read - you may have mentioned this also - was to lessen the angle of the ramp while loading lower front end using the tongue jack. Don’t have to do this for Himalayan but might for Road King.
