Van-Star Cycle Carrier for chassis shorter than 6M



£1107.50 ex VAT

  In Stock


If your camper van has opening rear doors, doesn’t have a tow bar and you want a strong, safe and easy to use bike rack, a VAN-Star could be just what you need. Fitting directly to the vehicle’s chassis, the VAN-Star offers strength, convenience and safety that you just don’t get with door-mounted cycle carriers.

Because the carrier is at or below knee height, the VAN-Star is ideal for heavier cycles including electric models. Putting bikes on and taking them off again is a quick and easy task.

When you want to open the van’s rear doors, the VAN-Star just swings away, smoothly and safely with the bikes still attached. When not in use, the carrier folds up adding just 30 cm to the overall length of the vehicle.

The VAN-Star is suitable for all Fiat Ducato vans (and variants from Citroen / Peugeot) from 2006 onwards.


NOTE: This item has to be delivered on a pallet and to a business address. There is a charge of £75.00 for delivery.

Collection can be arranged by appointment only, please email us if you wish to do so.

Customer Questions

Asked by Alan

Is it possible to have this rack fitted as well as a tow-bar. Also is the folding/swinging part of the rack detachable when not in use.

Answered by Allen Jenner at RoadPro on September 29th, 2016

Thank you for your enquiry.

The Van-Star Swing-Away Cycle Carrier cannot be used in conjuction with a Towbar. 

The rack can be removed (if you are changing your vehicle) but not on a day to day basis.

Asked by terence

would this be suitable for a 2015 Merc Sprinter based Devon Sapphire?

Answered by Andrew Harris at RoadPro on September 30th, 2017

Although there are plans to make them for Sprinters, at the moment the Van-Star is only available for Ducato-based vans. Sorry!
