    does anyone use a bike rack that secures around the tow Ball, i have a duetto and i can either pay out £200 for a proper rack on the door or buy one of the removable ones that goes on the tow ball for about £30
    but i am worried about how stable it will be.

    i have had one that fitted onto a seperate plate attached to the tow bar but i cant do that on this van due to the step. it has to go onto the towball any help gratefully received

    Hi Liz,

    Not sure what bike rack fits your van so give us a ring and someone will tell you. £200 sounds a bit over the top.
