Put a wheel chock in the front of the trailer and then use ratchet straps to secure the bike. No rail needed!

the wheelbase is 67" and the front tire is 13" from tread to axle You need 5" width for front tire and probably6" for the rear. A trailer 82" long would carry a wing with 20 some inches hanging out. Straps from the triple tree should be pulling forward and down at a 45 degree angle. The passenger handles can be used and I often use the rails underneath the bags. Safe, better than sorry- I also put straps pulling back and out from the driver pegs.
Having said all that, my buddy travels with his dresser using a wheel chock and two straps from his forks. I had a bike depart my trailer when I was a kid and I remember the sick feeling.

The trailer axle should be at least under the driver seat or further back. Make sure you have fair tongue weight when its loaded or you will have a waggin' wagon.
