Rear-mounted bicycle rack:
Here you can see how a rear-mounted bicycle rack is fitted by the manufacturer's instructions. Attaching the bicycle rack is done in a Kabe caravan.
Why we choose rear-mounted bicycle rack, is because:
we felt it most convenient to have the bikes back of the caravan. Bicycles front is difficult when you have to in the gas box, and bikes on the car is too cumbersome and makes noise when you drive.
Our Kabe caravan's very nose heavy with a bullet weight of approximately. 125 kg, and it is very, To move around the weight of a device caravan has. Mounting front is therefore excluded, otherwise, our caravan with short features which also excludes mounting front.
We have two options, to mount bicycles on the roof of the car, or the back of the caravan. We chose rear-mounted bicycle rack, which can also reduce the maximum load.
Incidentally, your car always have at least 20 % weight on the drive axle, and your car Front-wheel drive should always be 20 % of vehicle weight on the front wheels.
At a forhøjt ball pressure, it can often be difficult, to comply with the 20 %.
Is the caravan built for rear-mounted bicycle rack, and it is safe to run the caravan:
Kabe has factory-prepared for installation of rear-mounted bicycle rack, that is, in the gable wall mounted reinforcements of wood where the bicycle rack to be mounted, and there is made a separate assembly instructions from the factory used by dealers when mounting frequently lead Kabe manufacturer's instructions.
It is apparent from several debates, that some campers think it's dangerous to drive with rear-mounted bicycle rack, and others who drive with rear bike rack or driving with rear-mounted bicycle rack has not experienced problems.
Whatever the one or the other thought of rear bicycle stand on a caravan, you should think about every time you mount anything on the caravan.
When mounting a rear bike rack comes to gaining weight balanced, so going there will not “pendulsvingninger”.
Most often when you hear campers who have been beating around the caravan (pendulsvingninger), was due to the soul lent because they have rear-mounted bicycle rack on the caravan – But often due to improper loading of the caravan, incorrect tire pressure o.s.v. see more this link :

Also, there is just one must always adapt the speed to the conditions and on how your caravan is loaded. That is like when you have rear-mounted bicycle rack, you should not run more than 90 km/t, as recommended by the manufacturer instructions regarding bicycle rack.
What type of bike rack you should apply:
We have chosen a bike rack as Kabe recommend, and as the caravan is prepared for the factory on reinforcements in the wall construction, that super smart because avoid unsightly through bolts often seen inside the caravan.
If you mount your bike rack, you should before check with your dealer or importer regarding what type of bike rack you should mount.
Now we start the installation happens after the caravan manufacturer's instructions 🙂 :
The booklet supplied with the bicycle stand, we do not, and we can see the caravan manufacturer's instructions do not use the supplied through bolts and brackets, but that instead be used stainless screws and washers, wherein the dimensions of the screws is of course informed.
Kabe har to installationsvejledninger, we have for the sake studied the installation instructions we need.
Here is an excerpt of the Installation Guide:
You should then just remember there are different quality stainless steel screws A2 and A4.
A2 stainless and A4 stainless and acid-proof, you should choose A4 because any. salt can attack an A2 screw. If you would avoid buying a package each time you need a few screws, you can often buy stainless steel screws in a boat dealer.
Critical speed of the caravans is claimed on ALKO 115-120 km/t.
A short caravan has a lower critical speed than a longer caravan.
However, you must remember, that if you have rear-mounted bicycle rack with bicycles on, , the critical velocity be approximately. 10% lower.
