Bicycle carrier for the trailer coupling
Nowadays, carriers are mainly attached to the rear of vehicles. For passenger cars, the trailer coupling has qualified as a convenient and safe carrier for the bicycle rack in recent years. Transport is considered easy because bikes no longer have to be balanced on the roof and no other helpers are needed. The bikes are always in the field of vision of the rear-view mirror and the violent reactions caused by gusts of wind are also eliminated.
The bicycle carriers that are mounted on the trailer coupling are usually designed for 2, 3 or 4 bicycles and vary both in strength and in handling. In general, most bicycle carriers are very user-friendly, but there are differences in handling, which are then reflected in the price structure.
Bicycle carriers for motorhomes
Bicycle carriers for motorhomes are usually mounted on the rear wall of the vehicle. Depending on the design, these bicycle carriers can even transport e-bikes. Since the choice of different motorhomes is immense, the manufacturers of bicycle carriers have had to react and develop a huge range of almost individual or adaptable bicycle carriers. When buying a bicycle carrier, it is therefore essential to specify the exact vehicle data in order to get the right model.
Bicycles and e-bikes are no longer considered purely a means of transport, but rather sports equipment in a higher price segment. It is therefore essential that bicycle carriers are always fitted with a very good lock to protect the sanctuary against theft.
Bicycle carriers for motorhomes are also usually designed for 2,3 or 4 bicycles, whereby the 60 kg maximum weight must be observed. When transporting e-bikes, this maximum weight is reached very quickly.
The decision for a bicycle carrier must always mean: Very good quality from a well-known and reliable manufacturer. After all, it is not only about the safety of your own bicycles, but also about the safety of other road users. A bicycle that comes loose from the carrier at high speed can become a dangerous projectile for uninvolved persons.
