    Can anyone recommend a good bike carrier for an avant.
    I need to carry 4 mountain bikes and I have a towbar.
    So I presume the towbar mounted unit is probably best.
    Any advice appreciated

    I've not had any dealings with this my self but my dad use to carry 3 bikes on his two bar with out any issues.
    I know thule does a bike carrier system for the tow bar that can 4 bikes I think.

    Tow bar carrying systems or roof are much better than the tail gate version.
    Have you thought about the roof bar systems?



    P.S. I got a 2/3 bike carrier that clips on to the tail gate for sale. :ninja:

    Ya, thought about the roof system but a bit pricey because I would have to buy roof bars also.
    I have a cheapo 2 bike carrier at the moment for the towbar but I definetely wouldn't get a third on it.
    Send me a pic of yours and a € and I will have a look. No promises though

    It's just basic one really.

    £10 or what ever that is in € + postage.

    My grandad used it to move his bikes from the UK to spain when he owned Audrey.
    It spent the rest of its time in the loft.

    I'll weigh it when I get home and let you know.
