thinking of getting bikes. Motorhome has a towbar and towball fitted so probably easiest to fit a towball cycle rack. Anyone got one and any reccomendations. TIA

We have one but don't think its ideal for the electric fold up bikes. They don't seem to fit properly.

We have a Witter ZX88 which costs about £100 which I have used on my car but don't have a tow bar on the MH. You need to have a way of locking the bikes and holding them down onto the tow bar bracket as the vertical pole can be lifted off otherwise and the bikes nicked if you leave enough vertical slack. Chain or cable locking the bikes to the tow bar would be best if possible. You would probably need a lighting board and extra number plate as the MH number plate would be obscured but presumably you have towing electrics so can achieve this.

I have a BAKRAK with 2 cycle holders bolted on. Takes 100kg I think so enough for the 2 ebikes we carry. Cheapest & best way I've found.

We have Thule 2 electric bike model that works fine. It's a bit deeper to allow for electric bikes. It's very substantial and weighs about 20kg so a bit of a lump to move around. There is a very good locking arrangement on it.
