If you plan to take your bikes on your next caravanning holiday you're going to need a bike rack. Thankfully most Swift Group Caravans and Motorhomes are now cycle rack ready..., cue the Thule Elite G2.

Thule Elite G2 Bike Rack on white backgroundA bike carrier is a must have on your caravan or motorhome, if you you intend on exploring your surroundings, once you arrive on-site. What's the point of finding the perfect beauty spot if you have no way of getting about to see it. What better way to discover the countryside and your surroundings than by bicycle?

The Thule Elite G2 Bike Carrier Standard Version has oversize oval frames for stability and features a lockable platform to prevent your bikes from moving during transport. The bike rails are adjustable from left to right to make sure you find the best position for your bikes without effort. Two sturdy wheel holders on each bike rail, with quick lock for ease of use and rack lock for security.

The Thule Elite G2 Bike Rack is equipped 2 carry 2 bikes as standard but thanks to its telescopic platform, the bike rack can be upgraded to a 3 bike carrier or 4 bike carrier, with these sets sold separately.

This really is a well thought out value added feature, that makes it possible to install the Thule Elite G2 Bike Carrier cycle rack to the majority of Swift Group caravans and Motorhomes without a window in the rear panel.

Thule Fixing Bars - Better Support & Easy Fitting

Thule Elite G2 Bike Rack close up of bike rack railFrom this year, working in partnership with Thule of Sweden, all Swift Group Caravans and Motorhomes are fitted as standard, with Thule fixing bars(or mounting rails as they are often called) on the rear panel.

Thule Fixing Bars are designed to spread the weight of the bike carrier and bikes evenly over the rear panels of the caravan or motorhome. They also help expedite the bike rack installation by offering a simple and straightforward fitting process. The Thule bike rack can be fitted to the Fixing Bars at the time of purchase or at a later stage, if and when required.

This premium quality caravan bike carrier allows you to transport your bikes safely, easily and in style no matter where you are travelling.

Hello Mr Swindlehurst Thank you for your message regarding the Thule Elite G2 bike carrier. If your electric bikes are 40kg each, then we advise you that this would NOT be a good idea, as It's over the weight capacity of the bike carrier at 60KG. If the 40kg is for both electric bikes then this would be ok. I hope this is ok. Kind Regards Steve

Hello Jason Thank you for your message regarding the Thule bike carrier for your Bessacarr Motorhome. If you have the rails already fitted, all we would need you to do is measure between the rails to confirm which G2 Carrier will fit....(Standard/Short). If you haven't got any rails fitted on the rear of your motorhome you would then need to get a rear diagram of the motorhome from the manufacturers so we know where the fitting points are on the rear of you Bessacarr. If you require anymore information please email me on steve@homesteadcaravans.co.uk or call our main office on 01255 830229. I hope this is helpful. Kind Regards Steve

Hello Cher I can confirm the best bike carrier that would fit your 2012 Sterling Eccles Sport 382 is the Thule G2 Standard bike carrier.

You can get this information from swift direct, but if you would like more information please email me on steve@homesteadcaravans.co.uk. I hope this is helpful. Kind Regards Steve

I have a 2012 Sterling Eccles Sport 382. Can you recommend a bike rack/carrier?

Cher

Hi Just about to purchase a 2017 Swift Escape 684 with fixings at the (No rear window) rear. Swift recommend the Thule bike rack system. Which Thule bike rack is best suited for my motorhome for 2 bikes. Regards Dave

David Boyne

Hi Steve Thank you for your comment. The Thule G2 bike rack will fit your swift Charisma, but unfortunately you would need to get in contact with swift direct for the rear panel diagram for the strengthening points to secure the Thule fitting bars. If you are a confident in fitting and screwing through your rear panel of the caravan, this is a straight forward job. Depending on the strengthening points of the rear panel will determine if you require the Standard or Short G2 bike carrier. If you require any further information please email steve@homesteadcaravans.co.uk or call 01255 830229. I hope this is helpful. Kind Regards Steve

stephen peter wyss

Hi i have a swift charisma 565 2005. Would the cycle rack fit. Many thanks Steve

steve rich

Hello If you have the Thule Bike Rails already fitted to the the Swift Sundance 630g, then it is very straight forward to fit and wouldn't need fitting by a professional. If It hasn't got the rails already fitted this would be more involved, and depending on how confident you are on drilling the rear panel and finding the strengthening points on the rear panel, you probably would get a professional Caravan/Motorhome fitter to mount the THULE G2 Bike Carrier. If you would like any further information or help on this please email: steve@homesteadcaravans.co.uk or call 01255 830229. Steve

Stephen Wyss (Homestead)

IVe just bought a 2007 swift Sundance 630g. Will your G2 standard be easy to fit? How do you know where to fix it? Is it better to have a professional install it or is it pretty easy? Thanks.

Gill Harding

Hello The maximum loading weight for the Thule Bike Rack is 60kg for 2 Bike's. You will need to find out each weight of the E Bike you own to make sure that it's within the loading weight of the Carrier. You can fit the Thule Carrier to most Caravans which doesn't have the rails already fitted, but you would need to have the rear diagram which will have the strengthening points for the brackets. We can supply and fit the Bike Carrier, but this would have to be fitted at our Essex base. Please email: service@homesteadcaravans.co.uk or call on 01255 830229 to arrange fitting and cost. Kind Regards Steve

stephen peter wyss

Is the Thule bike carrier able to carry 2 e bikes without batteries of course please

Ann littlefair

Hi can you tell me if I can fit Thule elite G2 cycle rack brackets to my 2015 Swift challenger sport 442 caravan on the back that would allow me to fit the cycle rack? Can they be fitted by myself? What sort of cost for supply and fit for the brackets only and cost for supply only?? Best regards and thanks. Bill.

Bill Judge

The Thule G2 Standard & Short bike carrier will fit most Caravans. If the Caravan you have, hasn't got the Bars already fitted from Manufactory, you would then need to contact the Dealer or manufactory for the rear diagram for the strengthening points for the Bars. This also means that if you have internal mirrors fitted you may need to move due to the plates for the external fixing bars. For any further information please contact me on 01255 830229.

Stephen Wyss (Homestead)

I am soon to take delivery of a 2017 684 swift bolero motorhome and want to fit a thule elite short version bike rack do you have fitting instructions please

Ken Evans

Will the 2 bike wheel rack fit a 2016 swift 645 continental. Is it easy to fit And how much does it cost.

Jeff rifat

The Thule Standard & Short G2 Bike Carrier will fit Most 2016 on-wards Swift Group Caravans & Motorhomes which have the bars fitted on the rear of the caravan. Any Caravans which haven't got the rear bars fitted would need to contact there Caravan Manufacturer for the rear diagram for the strengthening points to fit the Support Bars (which are included in the kit). There are two models that we sell which are: Short Version fits 50-80 cm heights & Standard fits 80-150 cm heights. The short version can be fitted to panels with rear windows. Unfortunately any further information we would advise contacting Thule directly. I hope this information is helpful to all comments above.
