I am also about as far from an engineer and anyone can be, but I guess I'm one of those nervous Nellies that imagines a worst case for everything.:mrgreen:
Standing vertical, of course, there is no strain anywhere. But I'm thinking of a scenario where the trailer wheel on one side hits either a bump or a pothole, throwing the bike with force to the side. The axle will be held securely but a lot of torque will be transferred to the swingarm from the bike's mass.
One assumes, though, that the rig was fully tested by the manufacturer and will work fine. Give us a trip report later. Something like this would work better in my toy hauler than a network of straps to crawl around in a confined space.
