Default Carrying Electric Bikes- again !!!

I have recently been trying to figure out ways of carrying our 2 leccy bikes safely on the M/H without damaging the rear wall, I didn't want to remove the cooker and fridge to get at the mountings, so this is what I came up with, obviously I will have to add another number plate to keep legal, time will tell if it all works OK.

I think it will give a lot of support on a downward bump, Like I had in Devon, good luck with it it looks ok. Pete

That was the origional idea, not necessarily supporting the weight in general running but better support when on rough roads, over potholes etc, to try and reduce the jolting on the rear panel.
