IF YOU WANT to go cycling when you are on tour, you might wonder which is the best motorhome bike rack for transporting your bicycle, without running the risk of damaging it.
That’s where the Practical Motorhome Awards 2022 come in, which we recently announced the winners of. With our decades of collective experience within the industry, we are perfectly placed to pick out the the best bicycle rack for your motorhome, as well as some of the standout contenders…
The best bike rack for your motorhome is…
Fiamma Carry-Bike Pro C Motorhome Bike Rack
Part of the Fiamma Pro series of bike racks which are positioned on the rear wall of a motorhome, the Pro C is a short version of the Pro one and is designed to be installed under the rear window whilst still allowing it to open.
Fiamma’s reputation for quality products is shown off to full effect in this bike rack and we like its compact size and ease of use. It has a bull shock absorber, a scratch-proof bike lock and a sturdy rail with Quick-Safe straps. It can carry two bikes as standard, and up to four with extra rails as an option.
For those of us with rear window motorhomes, it’s a natural choice – the build quality, ease of use and practicality make it an excellent option.
Price: £268.99 at Fiamma

Fiamma Carry-Bike Lift 77
This versatile bike rack suitable for two to four bikes is height adjustable and has a dropping rail that lowers by 77cm – hence the name. It has a Bull Shock Absorber for absorbing shocks and vibrations and a scratch proof bike lock.
