Hi, Ann and Barrie here.  We have just ventured into owning an Auto Sleepers Stanway, having had a couple of VW camper vans previously.  We race whippets and this van particularly suited our needs for floor space, bearing in mind the need for us to travel quite extensively to attend competitions. We are newbies to this size van so are trying to find our feet with it.  In particular we would really appreciate some feed back on what works best for other members for carrying luggage.  We have read that there appears to be some problem with bike racks affecting the rear doors, so now we are unsure on how to proceed.  We wish to carry Flat packed dog crates and a couple of folding chairs in a carry bag, definitely no more than 35 kegs in weight.  Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.!

Hello and welcome asof_welcome2

You will find loads of help here, I hope".

I have fitted a bike rack to the rear door and have not had any problem, mind you we are not into electric bikes and just use ordinary bikes.
One thing that comes up on here and what I have done is not to just rely on the clamps that fix to the door, but I think a must is to drill through the door and use the security bolts provided, not for security but to take some load, I also used some large load spreading flat washers. I also painted the drilled holes!!

Hope this helps, if not ask some more.
