    I want to fit a bike rack to the back of my M.H i don't like the idea of drilling holes but on investigation i have found that there are racks to fit the Ladder no drilling required has anyone got one of them or have you herd about them


    Thanks

    Yes, I've seen them on American RVs .. basically just a big L shaped bracket that the bikes hang on .. wouldn't be too hard to make ..

    No Idea who sells them in the UK, you could try RV dealers and spares

    Hi Bill,

    If you ring Glenn Harris, our Service Manager, he will be able to reassure you and how to do it.

    Be warned our phones are a bit manic so have patience!

    I would have thought most roof ladders are on the side of the rear wall on most vans, are the bikes going to overhang the width of the vehicle. :Doh:

    I did not want to drill holes in my van or have the mess of aluminum scaffolding on the rear when not in use so went for a tow bar and bike rack that coupled to the tow ball. Simples.

    The Bike sits with the front wheel facing the roof of the van and does not overhang you can see a picture from the 2nd post
