Hello! We've just bought our first camper after many years of me planting the seed and many recent months looking. It's a T5 2013 with double barn doors - we were after a tailgate but this van ticked all the other boxes.

We're really pleased with it and are now looking for a bike rack to hold 4 bikes (2 adult 2 childrens) We have a detachable towbar. No roof spoiler but I think the bumper is modified.

We're considering an Atera STRADA DL 3 to 4 bike carrier as it fits on the towbar and lowers away from the van - but I can't imagine that the barn doors would fully open?

Can anyone suggest anything else? Ideally we'd want one that swings out the way - but not sure if the barn door hinges can take the weight.

Many thanks! Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this question.

Hi Chayoliver. Thanks for the reply. I'm surprised and pleased to hear that the barn doors open fully - I would expect a tailgate to, but I thought the double doors would catch on the frame of the carrier. As far as I'm concerned, that's a bonus. I'll be ordering one soon (unless anyone suggests an alternative). Cheers!
