    Hi to all,
    I am in a quandary; I have a Swift Sundance 590RS, 2003 model, and need somewhere to carry our 2 bikes. At first I was going to get a small fiamma bike rack fitted below the rear window but have heard that due to the GRP panel if not fitted properly could cause the panel to crack, also the inside of the kitchen cupboards seem to have a wooden back to them so how do they get to the rack fittings without having to strip out half the van? Then I thought an easier option would be to get a tow bar fitted and use the bike rack that I already use on my car that clamps over the tow ball only problem is I cannot see any holes in the chassis, the only ones there are, are where the spare wheel carrier is bolted the next problem is I have reverse sensors fitted the rear bumper and wonder if the tow bar would interfere with them. I would also like to replace the rubber seal that fits across the top of the rear plastic bumper panel the full width of the van, mine has perrished, would this be available only from Swift through a dealer! Any advice greatly received.

    Hi We have a swift bessacarr, not the same layout as yours but we have the water tank across the back so a rear mounted bike rack would have to be high up over the rear window so I had a tow bar fitted to tow a trailer and also fit a bick rack.:thumb: :thumb: Peter
