    Hello all I am looking for a bike rack which is capable of carrying 2 e bikes 23kg each bike with batteries on so will be a little lighter when batteries are removed
    Do not want to go down the tow bar route for various reasons.
    Any suggestions on which rack and good fitters would be appreciated.

    This is a special model of the Fiamma Carry Bike Pro(in a blue version), which is suitable for Hymer motorhomes with preinstalled upper fixing brackets.

    The weight is 8.2kg and it can carry a maximum of 60kg.

    It comes ready to carry two bikes but with additional accessories it can hold a maximum of four.

    Give one of the shop/workshop staff a call on 01-580-881288 and have a chat to them with the van details

    Ask Peter.

    It takes 60kg
    The Hymer one is a hell of a long way to lift heavy bikes up to

    If you look at my fitting guide for Rapido you'll see I ignored Rapidos fixing points deliberately because they are flippin idiots.
    This is what they would have :eek:

    I am a carpenter by trade having looked at your fitting I am tempted to have a go myself it's just drilling the back wall that's a bit daunting I suppose I could by the rack and then make up my mind after having a look at what's involved.
    Great job by the way it seems a bit silly of Rapids to put the upper fixing points off centre any ideas why

    I don't think there is any drilling on yours, it should fit your upper fixings. Have you got lower fixing points?

    So there's room for a ladder on the left that no one bothers with.

    BTW Fiamma store price is £479 for 2 ebikes

    No rail on bottom just two fixing points on the top
    It's a hymer tramp 554 cl
    I think the bottom ones will need drilling

    Something to work on as Peter only said over £500 which could be £579 like other sellers.

    Johns cross is only listing the cheaper bike lift 77 not the e bike lift 77

    EDIT Sorry Peters link says £527 less 10 % (y)
