Can anyone reccommend a good inexpensive bike rack (2 bikes) for the back of poptop caravan preferably one which enables us to leave the spare wheel on.

Hi Jenny Joy,

We use one called a Berns Beak. We bought it from a bike shop in Ballarat. It carries 3 bikes, has a 2 inch receiver so if fits straight into a hayman reece style towbar. It is made for 4WD and has a long bar that sets the bikes well back from the vehicle so that they clear the spare tyre. I made up a towbar on the rear of our roadstar van that has the spare mounted on the rear bumper. When we don't have the van on, I just slide the rack out of the van and use it on the Pathy.

Checked out the sticker on the rack - phone (03) 9720 1650 or try
