    Hi,
    we are thinking of adding a bike rack to our Autotrail Tracker motorhome this year since our wee dog is getting on a bit. has nayone done this to a tracker and are there any llimits to weight or safety implications. We've spoken to Autotrail but real motorhomers know things...
    Thank so much,
    Claire:RollEyes:

    No problem ! got a fiamma bike rack on the back of my Scout !! Just a case of finding somewhere to have it fitted !
    However, why does your wee dog need a bike ? :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Respect. You've taught your dog to ride a bike ?

    If you have a towball on your van one of the Thule range of bike carriers might be suitable.

    Their range can be viewed at:

    http://www.thule.com/en/GB/Products/Bike-Carriers

    Various suppliers have sales on their websites, so Halfords price of £60 for the 2 bike Thule bike carrier should be easily beaten.

    Johns Cross will fit anything ( even underwear if you smile :Rofl1: )
    They are one of only a few places that are constantly recommended by one and all :thumb:

    Had a bike rack fitted at one of the shows early last year use it every trip, if yours is the previous model Tracker like mine ( 2010) the rack is highish (see photo) and does obstruct reverse camera view when bikes are fitted.

    I agree that the rack is high on the Autotrail - you might need to stand on the dog to reach the bikes :Rofl1:.

    When you fasten the dog on to the rack make sure you use plenty of bungies:Rofl1:
