VAN-Star swing away bike carrier for van conversions.

The carrier is mounted to the chassis and not to the hinges of the rear doors. This is ideal for e-bikes since they are placed at knee height and the bikes do not have to be lifted high.

The Van-Star swivels on the right hand side, this way both rear doors can be openen and you have easy access to your belongings. The hinge on the left side provides more comfort, you do not have to walk around the pivoting arm to get to the rear doors. In case the carrier is not being used it is easily foldable. The carrier can even be removed without the use of any tools.

The bicycle carrier is supplied complete for the transport of two (electric) bicycles, is equipped with a lightboard with cabling and a 13-pole 'Jaeger' plug. The maximum load capacity is 60kg, the carrier is made of powdercoated steel and finished with aluminum parts. The Van-Star is approx. 80cm deep, collapsed this is 40cm and the lightboard has a width of 140 cm.

The carrier is available for:

  • Fiat Ducato, Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay/Jumper from 2006 onwards
  • Mercedes Sprinter, Volkswagen (New) Crafter and MAN TGE from 1996 onwards
  • Volkswagen T5/T6

A vehicle specific wiring kit is not included and has to be ordered seperately. The swing away bycicle carrier for campervans can be fitted to the chassis in combination with a towbar.

To protect your bikes from the elements, there is a suitable bike cover available. 

The advantage of having the hinge on the right side of the van conversion:
+ Comfort, you do not have to walk around the pivoting arm to get to the rear doors.
+ Convenience,  the right door opens first, the carrier does not have to be opened all the way.
