    just wondered if any of the tiltable towbar mounted bike racks would allow the van doors to be opened. Witter ones definitely don't give room so I think it's unlikely but I am hoping to be proved wrong! Thank you in advance.

    Hi Carolyn we have just bought a bike rack. Thule make a whole range which work perfectly with the lift up back door. It depends on how heavy your bikes are on which one you go for. We bought the lightweight Thule Euroway G2, as our bikes are lightweight ones. Have a look on the Thule site sorry can't seem to make the link work here! www.thule.com

    The bike rack Jim has posted about also seems to be a really good idea! Good luck with your riding Carolyn, we have yet to go out on our bikes this year, maybe this weekend, live in hope!
