If you need a new bike carrier for your 'van, check out the Practical Motorhome Fiamma Carry-Bike T5 review

Overview

This rack from ’van accessory specialists Fiamma is a very good fit for the T5’s tailgate, although the licence plate does end up slightly obscured. The rack is fairly easy to put together, attaches without much trouble and is very light for a rack rated to carry 60kg – which also means that it’s the easiest in this test to lift up and fit. We love the ratcheting straps – similar to the ones on the Thule – which secure the bikes. They’re much easier to use than fabric, cam-buckle straps. Unfortunately, it carries only two bikes, which is a bit of a let-down considering its price.

Price £249.15.
