    The tricycle carrier arrived this morning...I can't show an actual picture of it on the back of the van because they sent the wrong towbar bracket :rolleyes:.

    It will take Ginny's electric trike nicely...but it seems massive to be sticking out of the back of the motorhome. 1 metre to be precise. I suppose not much more than a 4 bike Fiamma (do they make one?) . Combined weight on the towbar about 45kg so no problem there.

    Can anyone see any issues...it's heading to Spain in a couple of weeks!

    I adapted a Fiamma Cary bike to take my wife's trike the only issue we had was lifting it up there other than that it travelled well all the way down to Spain and back just remember you've got an extra meter of van on the back.(y)(y)(y)

    Depending on your overhang could be 90kg on the back axle.

    No problems Brian...I shall just have to dump a few pairs of Ginny's shoes!

    I'm also not carrying the old electric bike either so hopefully it won't make too much difference.

    I shall nip to the weigh bridge again when we're nearly loaded. Hopefully the air suspension that I'm fitting will also help with handling!
