    Good evening all
    I want to fit a bike rack to my Elddis Autostratus LS SE on Peugeot Boxer MWB Chassis.
    Due to the position of the rear ladder I feel a normal bike rack will foul with the ladder preventing correct mounting.
    I have seen a tow bar mounted bike rack which seems to utilise a Safe T Bar for the base of the rack and the upright supports / lashing points are mounted on the tow bar.

    Does any one have experience of fitting or better still qualified fitters of said items??

    I had a safe t bar on an old van. massive amount of weight lost from the payload and especially the rear axle load

    Does anyone one know where I can get a ladder mounted bike rack from in the UK. Have seen modified ones with a home made mounting plate but also seen this from the US


    anyone know if there is a UK seller?

    I take it you have a tow bar? I am wanting to modify or buy a rack to mount on a ladder that goes down the centre of the MH at the back or find a ladder mounted Rack as I don't have a tow bar and don't want to add to the expense by having one fitted?
