BTW - I'm doing a 4 corners ride in July 2015
We tow behind a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. It is barely enough and I certainly wouldn't get anything larger to tow behind the Highlander. The 1200 GSA will fit in the BaseCamp but it will be tight. I use a Condor chock to secure the front wheel. The chock is attached to the BaseCamp floor with a mounting kit but we had to install it up into the pantry well so the rear wheel would clear to back ramp. That back ramp/steps is not designed to be load bearing.
Here are a couple of photos that I hope help.
This one shows the mount installed on the Basecamp floor. The Condor chock attaches to this mount using a screw pin. It is rock solid once it is locked down.
This is the only shot I have of the Condor chock (It's in the lower left of the photo). After arriving at the campground and unloading the bike I unlock the chock and sit it outside the BaseCamp so we can unfold everything. Notice the ends of the lateral member of the chock have been ground down. We did this so it would fit up into the pantry far enough for the rear wheel to clear the ramp/steps.
If the FJ is rated to 5K it should do fine.
