    Bike rack - Tailgate vs Barn Doors - 4 Mountain bikes

    Hi, I am currently looking to buy a VW Campervan and notice the mixture of 'tailgates' and 'barn doors' types. Our main requirement for this campervan is to be able to take 4 mountain bikes on the back when heading off camping. Does that mean we should only be looking at 'tailgate' options...

    Vw T6 Bike Rack - Retro-fit To A T5?

    Has anyone ever heard of the VW T6 bike rack being fitted to a T5? I much prefer the look of the new rack, but I can't find any evidence that you can replace the T6 mounting apparatus to make it sit on a T5 tailgate instead. Any help or suggestions much appreciated!

    Electric Tail Gate Override For Bike Rack?

    I have a towbar bike rack but the electric boot won’t function with it fitted, I presume this is a safety feature so it won’t hit the bike rack. Is it safe to manually open and close it? It feels wrong to push against the motor when pushing it closed.

    Can You Open A T6 Tailgate With A Thule 927 Tiltable Bike Carrier

    We have a T6 and I'll be honest - It's a huge faff loading 4 bikes onto our Fiamma tailgate mounted bike carrier.... and then it takes the strength of 7 people to open the boot. I'm thinking of fitting a towbar and getting a Thule 927 tiltable bike carrier (we're keeping the T6 for ever :-) so...
