Cycle Racks

Hi, i'm Jay Jay, just bought a Ford Transit Compass Herald Aragon Motorhome 1997, and it doesn't have a cycle rack on the back, was just wondering if anyone knows how easy it is to fit a cycle rack and which one would suit best, as i don't know if the back would cope with the weight, as i don't know if the back wall is stable enough, ?.

Hi Jay Jay, I think your post has got missed.

It's the sort of question folks on here do know about so hopefully putting your question to the top again will elicit a response.

And welcome to the forum!

This is a video of an 'R' registered vehicle. Bike rack in place so it is possible and it gives a very good guide to the fixing locations.
Presumably there are internal frames members in the appropriate places. You should be able to detect them fairly easily.

You will be able to fit one Jay, there will be four (or more) strengthening blocks built into the back wall for this very purpose.

You may be able to find them by tapping the back wall and listening for a solid sound, mark each place with a pencil as you find it, they should be on the same level, and above each other so you will be able to tell if you have the right places, next you need to find the centre of each block, so you can drill them, not sure if a stud finder will work or not, but worth a try if you have one.
