The pit-bull also doesn't hang the rear tyre in the air like the STS
one. You are correct that you back the bike into the STS stand. Some
people mount them so the front tyre faces the rear of the trailer and
back the bikes up and into the trailer. Others (like me) push the bike
in past where the stand mounts, place the stand in the base and then
roll the bike backwards into the thing. If you measure it all out you
can set it up as close to the rear of the trailer as possible. Here
are pics of my setup in my trailer :
