    My new motorhome, due for delivery the end of March, has a large garage where I shall be able to store our two electric bikes. My question for you knowledgeable funsters is, do I have to have a Fiamma garage type cycle rack fitted to secure them, if so, do they fold up when not in us, or is there another safe option?

    Most MH garages will have lash down points fitted to strap your bikes to

    Nop I use simple straps as lash points fitted in garage.

    Thanks for your replies, I now have a better idea of how to secure them.

    Regards DelMar.

    Problem with a bike rack in the garage it defines exactly where the bikes go and takes away flexibility for storing other items, I considered one, but decided it would severely restrict storage capabilities of the garage.

    Ours are just folded up and stuffed in as best as can.. Given what we carry in the garage depends on where we are off to ( winter to Spain includes our twin tub washing machine for instance ) it would be daft for us to have a specific 'set in stone' place for the bikes
