I will have a measure if needed, but it depends on the design of rack you go for.

Ours has a three bike Fiamma on our 2003 615 and sadly, it spans the rear window, which may be good for spreading the load, but is rubbish for those sat inside. It was fitted when we got the MH.

It means that we cannot open the rear window more than about 2cm at the bottom.

If I was doing it now, I would go for a towbar mounted one, without a doubt, even if it meant having a towbar fitted first.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Thanks for that. We’re looking towards the fiammi pro c rack as have seen them fitted on this model of van. There isn’t a great deal of placement due to the ladder but just wondered where the reinforcements were. Appreciate your offer and would have gone the Towbar route but haven’t got a bar fitted which is another question for another day

This is the style we’re looking at, looking at it now I’m more confident in that there isn’t much movement in the placement so hopefully should be ok
