    evening all,

    We have an 05 plate compass avantgarde 400. I am finally getting round to putting a rack
    on the back for my velocipede(bike). I would prefer one that leaves the rear window unobstructed
    when not in use. do the fixing bolts protrude inside?(near seating area). Would one that fixes above the window be better so that fixings are in top cupboards, the lower bolts being under the seats.
    Any advice on types... prices inc. fixing... dealers/fittes in Derbys/Notts S Yorks areas..

    Thanks in anticipation ....Big Do_O

    Dont fit it yourself unless you know where fixing points are..Had one fitted at Long Eaton Caravans years ago. Position is governed by model of motorhome unless you mount it on a tow bar...BUSBY.

    If you want unobstructed rear window then you could consider one of these
    http://www.watling-towbars.co.uk/motorbike_scooter_carrier.html

    A tow bar mounted bike rack is close to the ground, so no heavy lifting, plus your reversing camera is unobstructed too

    Watling engineers make the tow bar figments including connecting the electrics too

    Hope this helps
