The uhaul trailers come with tie down straps for the front wheels. I've never had to add anything else or tie down the back.

No wonder you are fast! Never met a motorcycle road course pilot who was not quick when he had a big shell around him and two additional tires. Loved instructing two wheel racers as they completely understand the concept of the correct line and where they have to place the bike -- makes where they put the car quite precise! Of course , the bike had to be very exact of they would be on their back? Our business taught us to find high quality parts for our customers , along with great service , because when there was a issue , we needed to resolve it quickly. Mac's tie downs are gold standard!
@HR692 I just got back from Willow Springs and here was my quick and dirty step up ramps I made. I am talking to someone to see if it is cost effective to make a nice metal step up ramp that could be set in between the rails of the trailer.
Basically I took a 4x4 and for 1 side I cut three 17" sections and bolted them together. Then I took a 2x4 and cut it one pice about 18" and I think the smaller pice was about 6". Enough to give it a 4" lift to meet the 4x4. I used my race ramps to get the car on the trailer and then when I got to the wood it gave me about 3/4 - 1 clearance. You can also take the lip off the Uhaul if you like.
Update - if you have the race ramps you can use them after you get your car on the trailer to use as a step up as well.
Nice! Thanks for posting! Since you're not using the U-haul tire tie downs what are you using to anchor it down and where?
Which race ramps are you guys using when getting the car up on the uhaul? I’ll be towing my S197 on lowered MM springs this coming track season.
This was a helpful thread.I bought the Mac tie down system. Worth the money for the ease of mind and they are very easy to use.
I agree about a few blocks not being a good reason to upset the balance of the trailer. The blocks themselves are not my concern. I was more wanting the frame stops in the front of the trailer to function as designed. With the car lifted 3-3.5 inches onto either stacked 2x12s or several 4x4s, the tire is effectively above the frame of the trailer. However, further consideration has me thinking that a car in an enclosed trailer does not have wheel chocks in the front, but is instead secured by straps on the wheels...invalidating my concerns.Loading a Car on a trailer is as much about center of balance as it is strapping it down. If the tongue is light with the car backed on, it may not travel right. A few blocks needed to load could prevent an unstable trailer while towing.
