The VAN-Star is fitted directly to the chassis of the van and not on the hinges of the rear doors. This makes it an ideal carrier for E-bikes, as it is fitted on knee height and there is no need for lifting the bikes high onto the carrier. The bike carrier swings away to the right hand side of the vehicle which allows both the rear doors to be opened simultaneously. This allows you easy access to the rear stowing compartments of your vehicle.
If not used, the bike carrier can be folded up to save you space in your garage or anywhere else. It can also easily be dismantled due to the way it’s fitted onto the chassis. The carrier is delivered as a complete kit for transporting two (electrical) bikes and a light bar with with a 13-pin Jaeger plug and bike arms are included.
The bike carrier is constructed from (powdercoated) steel arms and aluminium parts and has a maximum payload of 60 kg, the overhang is about 70cm, folded only 30cm when not in use, the overall width is 185cm. This VAN-Star is available for the Fiat Ducato vans from 2006 onwards (X250 and X290).
