    Seen quite a few foriegn vans with pipe carriers fitted between rear of van and bike rack which is only underground drainage pipe with ends.

    Looks a good idea for carrying fishing rods or windbreaks or similar keeps bike rack usable with no increase to length of vehicle and if you need a couple you could buy 4m length and cut in half.

    Might be usefull to someone

    I have one on Helga,, I use it for my waste pipe extenders for grey tank,,

    Previous owner had a carp rod in there,, still in there I think!! Lol.

    Just behind front axle,, Handy for the pipes, I have no idea where I would put them otherwise!

    We had one on the last van behind the bike rack to keep the Moroccan mat in so no wet, dust & dirt inside. Unfortunately I can't find anywhere on this van to fit it. It was too low behind the front axle.

    I’m having trouble visualising space behind the front axle for 4” drain pipes long enough for a carp rod. Isn’t that where the engine sump goes?

    We wrap the waste extension pipe around the bike rack

    We have one that we kept our fishing rods in but when we changed the van we took the bike rack off so now don't use it but at the time it was very useful.

    Had one on a previous mh to keep windbreaks in. We no longer carry windbreaks.
