    Hi, I have just bought a citreon relay van conversion, a friend who has done many has just finished it and I am more than impressed with the finished product and saved me a lot on your tradional camper.

    Just wanted to introduce myself, I am 44 yr old male and work from home so can get off when I want really, I will be mainly travelling solo and will probably make loads of mistakes and need some advice along the way as I am a total newbie :Wink:

    Paul

    P.S If I am allowed to ask a question I really need a bike rack, but the local halfords had none suitable for this van, could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Welcome Karel. Sorry I cannot help you wit the bike rack other than to suggest that I think you have these options.
    Bike on the roof if it is practical.
    A Thule or Fiamma bike rack on the door, which may not be practical or finally, have a tow-ball fitted and buy a tow-ball bike rack designed to fit on the back of cars. The last two ideas may interfere with the rear door opening.

    I think Fiamma do a rack that just fits to one door of a PVC so that the rear doors can still be opened. Try Johns Cross. Ad on the right.

    Hello and welcome.

    I'm sure Peter from John's Cross will help you out with the bike rack - don't forget they give funster's a discount.... you need to quote a code that Peter gives in his posts.
