Also the bars will end up damaging the carpet lining once it’s done! I had seen a folding rack...

Axle mounts at different heights to avoid clashes. For those days when fitting the tow bar rack feels...

    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?

    Matt Jones' "Ultimate MTB Van Build"

    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...
