Really? It is like $240. I mean you pay for an enclosed trailer, which is $$$ but not for $240 "tool" that makes life so much easier? One thing I never liked about an enclosed trailer is that you can't see what is going on in the trailer. That isn't a BIG deal, because the nice thing is that the bike can't fall out... like a small open trailer, but IMO it would be greater piece of mind to have a strapless system. I'd probably still add a couple of lightly tied down straps, just for added safety.
Another thing you guys can consider... although you might find it a tad pricey too.... is a BikePro chock. The nice thing is that it holds the bike up on its own.... so it makes the loading/unloading process easier.
As far as the set up of the trailer, my friend has an enclosed trailer and he keeps the tool boxes at the front of the trailer and has a makeshift table (which comes in handy bigtime). The table is hinged and can be lifted up and out of the way when loaded up with bikes, or brought down when at the track to help him work on the bike. Above the tool boxes at the front he has some tire racks and the leathers go along the side.
