VeloSwing – an e-bike carrying solution for campervans.

A couple unload gear from their van with e-bikes and a bike rack on the Thule VeloSwing van e-bike carrier.

Finally the long anticipated VeloSwing bike rack for campervans has been unveiled.

It will be available soon in the UK from Thule dealers Hill View Awnings.

As any campervan owner knows carrying bikes on a van fitted with barn doors is fraught with problems.

Van producers the likes of Fiat, Citroën, Peugeot and Opel all warn against door mounted bikes for all save very light weight bikes.  They all insist that heavy bikes should be carried on tow bar mounted bike racks.

The problem

The problem is that even the best of the tow bar mounted bike carriers interferes with the opening of the doors to the rear of the van.

Clearly what was needed was a van mounted swing away arm that could carry a tow bar and a bike rack.

Several small companies began to offer custom built solutions but they were always heavy ugly and somewhat agricultural in the design and look.

The VeloSwing from Thule seems to be the e-bike carrying solution for vans that we and many others have been waiting for.

Once installed it will be possible to load your e-bikes and head out on a road trip. Knowing that when you need to stop you can access cargo in the back of the van. You do not need to first unload the bikes.

Innovative towbar solution

This innovative towbar solution for carrying bikes can be used on vans that include the Fiat Ducato, Citroën Jumper, Peugeot Boxer or new Opel Movano van.

You can conveniently use the same towbar bike rack as on your ordinary car.

If you need to access packing in the back, simply swing the Thule VeloSwing aside. Then you get full access to your rear door even with the e-bikes loaded.

But this fully certified towbar is more than an e-bike carrying solution. With a towing capacity as high as your vehicle’s limit. You can use Thule VeloSwing to tow a heavy trailer, rear cargo box, and more.

This towbar easily swings to the side to give you full access to the rear of your vehicle, even with e-bikes mounted.

Want to attach a towbar cargo box instead? VeloSwing allows you to attach any towbar cargo carrier you own.

Thule VeloSwing functions as a certified towbar. It allows you to tow a heavy trailer, boat, and other towbar accessories up to the vehicle’s limit.

The VeloSwing is a hassle-free way to enjoy some beautiful new locations with your van. Now you load up your bikes and focus on the outdoor adventure that lies ahead.
