We also had this carrier on the back of our previous M/H an Autotrail Scout. This has the spare wheel carrier on the rear in a moulding. I've got a full suspension MTB with particularly wide bars and when on the inside rail, the handlebar naturally sat just in front of the 1 O'Clock position of the spare wheel with no problem and clearance between the end of the bar and the rear of the van itself
