Hi guys , now looking for my first transporter as a E bike van to get around better. (3 bikes) Any advice gladly accepted, my thoughts are T6 SWB high line , kombucha would be great if there is 6ft load space with rear seats folded …
Just wanted to introduce myself, names Jamie and we have got our first Transporter, a T6 called Terry (kids idea).
Currently going through the process of insulating and carpeting, going to keep as a Kombi and not a camper (for now).
Look forward to waving back at everyone that waves...
I’m currently storing bikes upright strapped round the head tube (pics for reference) and this is great when carrying two bikes however with 3 space becomes an issue in terms of keeping bikes separate. Also the bars will end up damaging the carpet lining once it’s done!
I had seen a folding rack...
Very pleased with todays effort. Task was to build a bespoke removable bike rack to allow two bikes be mounted inside the van.
Seat belts thread through to fix in place like child’s car seat. Axle mounts at different heights to avoid clashes.
For those days when fitting the tow bar rack feels...
Hello all, I am asking for help and ideas from the collective great minds that make up this forum. I have a T6 SWB Kombi that had a Caravelle rail conversion when I purchased it. Included in the conversion was a nice laminate floor was fitted, but this has covered up the tie down points (I...
Looking to install a slim bed in my kombi that will allow me to fit a MTB down the side.
Narrowed it down to either the van furniture sliding bed or the infinity customs slim bed.
Just wondered if there were any other options I've missed?
Decided to build my own sliding tray to carry 3 MTB's in the back of my SWB Kombi, as didn't want to fork out £700-900+ for the ones sold online.
Mine is made up from 18mm hardwood ply and a mixture of fixings from B&Q and Toolstation approx £60. Heavy duty 1400mm lockable Vadania sliders...
I purchased a 2018 LWB SE shuttle a couple of months ago and began modifying it straight away. We have always dreamed of having a van so basically sold my motorbikes and purchased this shuttle from Scotland. Drove my car up there traded it in and drove this home. 4 hours after collecting it I...
Matt Jones' Van Haven build. I'm not sure i'm quite there with this being the "sickest thing ever", but it's definitely worth a watch for a MTBing van lover, or vanning MTB lover.
I do like the bike tray, but it isn't overly space efficient. And, speaking from experience, a nice cabin and...
For about half a year now, we've been looking at vans, mostly VW Transporter (T6) and are considering trading our every day car in for it.
We'd like to use it for:
- Daily commute
- Groceries, shopping, larger purchases
- Road trips & vacations
- Road trips with our motorcycles...
Am seeing if there is a way to convert my LWB Kombi to be able to sleep and store MTBs securely at the same time . Was thinking about some sort of platform bed raised up under which I could clamp the bikes to the floor by the front wheels with droppers lowered (or outposts out) to save height...
I’m thinking of converting a LWB Kombi and wondered if anyone can see any snags or issues with my plan! (I’ve attached my scribbled design )
I plan to use the van as my main vehicle so need 4 seats minium. I need to cart about a large dog and several bikes daily. I also want to be able to do...
Forty Winks Internal Bike Rack
Anyone any experience with these? I only use/take my bike very occasionally so it seems a cheaper and more secure way of carting the bike to the hills than the standard external bike racks. I've standard SWB two single cab seats and a rear seat/RnR bed which sits...
I’m looking for a storage solution for up to 4 MTB bikes in the back of a LWB Kombi. Has anyone found an off the shelf solution or has anyone fabricated something they’d be prepared to share.
looking for something that can be removed easily and doesn’t require wheels to be removed. Thanks
So, we might be going to France in mid July in the van. Caravan at Eurocamp subject to restrictions being lifted.
I’ll be taking the rear (3rd) row of seats out of our SWB and want to get 4 bikes in the back. If I remove front wheels, pedals and twist handle bars 90 degrees is it feasible to...

Does anyone have experience with ramps specifically for a motorbike.(Road Sports Bike)
I'm looking to buy one but I'm clueless as which brand or type are any good and practical.
Also looking for a foldable one if there are any good ones out there.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
Looking at bolting a few Delta Bike Hitch Pro to a piece of wood that I can put in and out of the van.
Anyone done the same with any pointers?
Carabiners to tie down point to secure wood? Or something more fancy out there?
