Does the trailer have a wooden floor, if it does you can screw chocks into the floor. Just remember your screw gun to unloas. When i just bought mine i did that and had no problems.

If you have a wood floor why don't you just install these and you wont have to worry about the screw gun

I use 2 HD straps, about 3" wide, and one goes from trailer left, over floor board (front), to trailer right side. The other does the same except it's to the rear side of the floor board. One pulls the cart forward, the other pulls the cart backwards which cancel each other out.

To avoid strapping on something that might that flex, bend and loosen, or an area where a strap might slip. Having towed my Jeep many thousands of miles (different trailer) you really want something holding all four corners of your vehicle. With the Jeep, 4 axle straps work great, didn't see enough beef to attach to on the cart unless you wanted to snake through the frame. It was literally quicker to put 8 screws in my wooden chocks, probably overly conservative, just another perspective.

Good ideas posted.
Trailer has a wood floor. Tomorrow I'm gonna mount some of those recessed d-loop rings. If I put them far enough apart, I may be able to wrap the axel and front suspension. This method won't prevent hopping though.
Strapping from the canopy or wrapping straps within the passenger compartment sound good. I'll mess with it and figure what works best.
Cheers!

Yeah... I know, My cart is a DS, BUT... the tie downs might be somewhat similar! (I think?)

For the front, I used to tie down to the center plate, with a strap going from the center hole to 1 D ring,
then I'd put the second strap, from the hook/hole on the first strap to the other D ring,
using the center plate worked just fine, but now, I do it as pictured.

For the rear, a strap from the brake bracket, to a D ring on both sides.
(I don't know if the Precedent has the same type brake brackets!)

Note: don't tie down to any part of the front suspension, try to tie down to the frame if at all possible!





Will this help you?... I just thought I'd throw it out there!

You don't even need to recess them

Why don't you keep it at home, save your money and do the service and upgrades yourself?
As you can see, plenty of helpful people here to walk you through anything.
Also, picking up a service manual wouldn't be a bad idea.

After lifting the cart to see what speed controller is in it, these things aren't that complicated. I'm going to upgrade my electronics with Scottyb then lift it. As long as I can get it off the ground, I think I'll be doing most of my own mods.
....With the help of you guys, of course!
