    We have one but the grab bars are either missing or there is none to fit and the wheels hardly fit either so we are looking to replace it this year with something more user friendly. It must be able to carry 2 bikes.

    We saw a few at the show today, folded up nice but were a bit heavy I thought. What do you use and can you recommend it? Only towball replies please.

    Used the Thule Euroride 2 on our coachbuilt last year around France/Spain. Carrier locks to tow ball, Bike arms lock bikes on carriers. Big enough for our 2 mountain bikes. Definately would recommend.

    Westphalia BC60, works very well for us. Found going round the NEC quite useful as you can see them all in one day.

    I used one of these for ten years, used twice a week. Solid dependable bit of kit.

    Thanks all. Oh decisions decisions. It's narrowed down to two now, between a Atera Strada and a Westfalia BC60..I don't suppose you sell either of these @Johns_Cross_Motorhomes

    Ok after much research I have decided on the Atera Strada M so my next Q is.

    What type of bikes do you put on yours, and what is your wheel size and wheelbase length. Do they fit on OK or should I buy the ML version.
