Traveling in motorhomes or trailers tempts you with a sense of freedom and freedom of movement. They allow you to take a bicycle or scooter on your dream vacation, which you can use to explore the picturesque surroundings of mountains, lakes and forests. Before setting off on a trip, it is worth considering the method of transporting equipment that will allow you to spend your time actively while on the trip. Campervan owners can put their bicycles in the luggage compartment. However, dedicated external transport systems seem to be a much more convenient solution. Additional racks not only save valuable space inside the vehicle, but also ensure full safety of the transported equipment and all road users. There are numerous transport solutions on the market, including racks mounted on the drawbar, hook, vehicle wall and more. Which of them should you choose?

Drawbar racks

One of the most popular solutions are drawbar racks attached to the front of the caravan. Although they are not the cheapest, they allow you to transport up to 4 bicycles, which will be appreciated by those who enjoy family trips. Their advantage is also simple and quick installation. Before purchasing, it is worth checking whether a given rack can be mounted on a specific drawbar of our trailer. The camping accessories store's offer includes models of the well-known and proven Thule brand, adapted to regular and short A-shaped bicycle frames.

Hook racks

Another solution for passenger car owners are hitch-mounted racks. Tilting models of this type of rack allow you to transport 2 or 3 bikes and enable easy access to the rack without removing the bikes. However, the disadvantage of such mounting is that visibility behind the vehicle is limited. When purchasing, it is important to choose towbar racks equipped with light boards or with the option of mounting them.

Wall racks

Ladder or platform racks mounted on the wall allow for permanent mounting of 2 to 4 bicycles on the back wall of a camper or caravan. They are cheaper than racks mounted on a hook and are particularly easy to fit to most camping cars. Their solidity is ensured by a metal structure with special brackets and belts. However, we must bear in mind the limited load capacity of this type of racks.

Scooter racks

Fans of riding scooters or small motorcycles can take them on holiday thanks to special racks in the form of a platform, usually mounted to the chassis. The solution is made of a strong structure, ensuring comfortable use, high durability, full functionality and easy assembly and disassembly.

Thule presents Thule Flow - a roof-mounted ski rack for winter sports fans
The first Thule ski rack was created in the 1970s - since then, the company's goal has been to provide skiers with solutions that enable them to transport their equipment comfortably, safely and in style. The proof is Thule Flow - the new roof-mounted ski rack, distinguished by its aerodynamic shape and the highest level of equipment protection. Flow holds skis up to 210 cm long, and its wide, flat shape also allows you to conveniently transport snowboards, poles and other accessories. Of course, like all Thule products, the Flow is also very easy to install and easy to load - thanks to the low rack height. On the one hand, its characteristic shape is reminiscent of classic Thule products, and on the other hand, it fits perfectly with modern cars. Safety is a priority for all Thule products - the company tests all its roof boxes comprehensively, both in its own Thule Test Center ™ and under real road conditions. When choosing a Thule ski rack, you can be sure that you are choosing one of the safest and most thoroughly tested products on the market. Thule Flow is extremely easy to use and install - thanks to the quick and convenient system using the PowerClick knob. Its interior can be accessed from both sides thanks to the Dual-Side system. When developing its characteristic, streamlined shape, Computerized Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology was used - this allowed for perfect aerodynamics, reduced fuel consumption and minimized driving noise.
