Hi there from sunny Cornwall

Post by Amanda on Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:10 pm

Hi there everyone.

I am delighted to have recently bought a 1998 T4 Topaz. I absolutely love it. Its so much fun. I've just booked a holiday to France on the ferry for myself and the kids and want to take their bikes. I want to get a bike rack but have never seen one on an old style T4 Topaz. Am I able to get one fitted or is it not possible because the boot opens upwards?

Also I'm looking for a smallish awning. Preferably easy and quick to put up. Either one with guy ropes that go over the roof or a drive away. Will the awnings advertised to fit the newer T4's fit the older ones like mine? Any suggestions of where and what to get?

Thanks

Amanda

I am sure there will be a Fiamma or Omnister bike rack that will fit your van have you had a good look round the dealers ?

Regarding awnings, a combination of both gives you flexibility free standing with a link piece (if thats the right word) that connects over the roof of the van and is easily disconnected when you want to drive away.  There are quite a few on the market but you could look at the likes of Kyam.  Some one will be along with better knowledge soon and suggest a model or two for you to look at
