    hi. with an end kitchen, it can be quite a task to fit a bike rack..removal of units cooker,etc. to secure the back plates of the rack. have you considered a tow ball type bike rack? lot less trouble:thumb:

    Tow ball safer, racks on the back are ok but I hit a bump and bent the rack fortunately no damage to the back of the van, Tow ball and rack dearer option but safer. Pete

    Hi
    Even if you have to remove any of the kitchen appliances it should still only take upto 2 hours labour, but remember to give the gas system a pressure check before and after the removal of any gas appliance!!

    Thanks for thoughts everyone. Have tow ball carrier on campervan. Looked at loads of end kitchen motorhomes with cycle carriers in situ. Have just bought one without and immediately realised fixing could be trickier than we expected!

    We had one similar to the maxxraxx although mounted to the body. The benefit was it ould be unclipped and removed if not wanted, so there didn't have to be something stuck out if you didn't want it/using it on a trip.
