Fiamma Carry Bike Caravan XL A
The Fiamma Carry Bike
Caravan XL A is designed to clamp onto the A-frame of any caravan or
trailer and was the perfect solution for us to carry two bikes on
our camper trailer. The wheels are strapped into channels with both
the straps and channels being adjustable. The frames of the bikes
are strapped to a generous, moveable rubber sleeve at a convenient
point which will depend on the size and type of the bike. By
loosening a couple of knobs the bike can be leaned forward or back
and can be fixed in these positions if required. For security we
will use our bike locks to fix the bikes to the trailer frame.
I found that I needed
to experiment to find the best location for the rack and putting it
closer to the spare tyre seems a better solution than risking the
bikes getting in the way when erecting or dismantling the tent. Of
course you can always take them off. I have put plastic tubing on
the vertical parts of the rack to help protect the bikes.
type of bike rack holds the bikes very securely and it is easy to
check on them in the mirror. They do not move at all. It is easy to
put bikes on and take them off. It may not suit all types of bikes
or bikes that differ greatly in shape or size, but it is quite
flexible in terms of adjustment.
The rack retails for
around $220 at your local caravan parts/accessories supplier.
