Pit bull TRS

Just picked up a cheap van as my bike hauler. Anyone know rh spacing between the 4 bolts for the pit bull trs? Anyone selling a cheapish used one? The mount taker is universal correct? Just change out the pins?

Sorry - I don't know the spacing, but yes, everything about the TRS system is universal...just swap the pins.

I'm not sure on the hole spacing either but I believe the plate is 6"x24". I've got mine in a full size chevy van. You will want to make sure the plate holes are on top of the ribs inside the van and you can use about a 5" long washer underneath to make sure it tightens up correct between the ribs, I used some 1/4" thick 1" wide stock for that.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies! Iíve looked at the set ups thr locals here use and usually they make a false deck made of plywood. I could fashion something like that, reinforce it with some sheet metal, and bolt the TRS to it. Or just drill through the van floor like you mentioned.

The holes are where the top bracket are.

I used some angle iron as reinforcement.

You will. Love the trs.

Can you take measurements of the holes how far across they are? Also, the distance between the front and rear holes.

hole to hole across is 22 1/2 and hole to hole front to back is 4 1/4.
