This well-made and easy-to-use bike rack is made by Fiamma, and designed for use with all Vanagon models. It is constructed out of strong, lightweight aluminum tubing. Its simple and sturdy design keeps your valuable bikes from moving around and damaging each other. The rack also positions the bikes up off the ground to be protected from road debris. To access the back hatch you have to take the bikes off the rack since the hatch struts cannot support the weight of bikes in the upright position.
This rack installs directly onto your vehicle's rear hatch. It has padded hands that hook over the top edge of the hatch and a support arm at the base of the hatch that is attached to the lower lip with a clip. No drilling is required for the installation which takes several quick minutes with simple hand tools.
This rack comes equipped for two bikes, but will accommodate up to three with additional parts sold separately. If you wish to carry a third bike, you will need to purchase:
(1) Fiamma Quick Rail
(1) Fiamma Bike Block Pro-2
