Which Cycle rack

We have just bought a Bailey Advance 59-2 and want to get a cycle rack for it. Unfortunately our old caravan one, which is a Thule, doesn't fit. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Are there rails already fitted on your MH?

First off you need to check with Bailey that the back wall is strong enough to take a cycle rack. IF there are reinforcing battens within the wall they will probably send you a diagram of exactly where they are.

Why won’t/doesn’t your current rack fit???

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I saw a photo of a MH like John’s (one for sale actually) and there were rails fitted, so maybe as his Thule brackets won’t fit maybe it’s a Fiamma product, and I was going to suggest he looked on the website of somebody like Agent Fiamma for the compatible fitting, which would then lead him maybe to a suitable bike rack.

If you have a tow-hook, bike racks to fit these allow very low wheel-on loading of heavy bikes. The bike rack can also be removed when not required very easily.

. . . of the Bailey 😂

It’s ok, I’ve already got my coat on.

If only I could think of an original, witty signature . . . this is where it would be . . .
