Not sure about Thule, I have Fiamma.  

If you have a back window then it's the Fiamma Pro Compact (PRO C) otherwise PRO.  A version of both available should you have electric bikes.

just be aware that the Fiamma is over 60cm deep and with a a pair of bikes will add almost a metre to the length of 7.75m turning this into a mightily long van at close to 9m!
add in that huge rear overhang (now a metre longer) and youll need to be very careful as that lot swings out..[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And the extra weight, which will be more than the rack and bike weights due to the distance behind the rear axel

Wow Chris, I've seen a few on sites, but never noticed that massive overhang before.

Impressive beast.

I’m assuming you haven’t, and if not I would recommend you have the rear axle weighed with the van loaded. I think you may have issues even with the heavy chassis.

one of the issues with low bed, rear washroom (caravan) layout vans is firstly the length of the van and the lack of any decent external storage, meaning large items are often attached to the rear on a rack exacerbating the lenngth, weight distribution and overhang 'swingout'.

I’ve not come across any rear axle weight issues...however the underslung spare wheel weighs a hefty 40kgs and is a long way from the axle....I’ve always wondered if I could move it forward to a space  in front of the axle...it would leave plenty of weight availability under the bed and on rear mounted racks...

A project for warmer weather me thinks!

We have a Duo and fiamma electric bike rack, we also have a tow bar and Aygo toad.... we can actually tow and put both bikes on at the same time - tight corners are a bit tricky but no accidents to date i.e. bending the rack with Aygo....  Better we find to remove one bike bar and carry one electric bike (send the wifey shopping in the mornings) then we can do tight corners no problem and have the toad and bike - no issues to worry about.  We use the Aygo to go out with the dogs locally once parked up... we find this combo gives us all the options depending on mood, hang-over during any visit - in the good old days did seven months trogging around France, Spain, Portugal no issues towing with the A-Frame (go for it boys)  and we never had any negative comments from any law enforcement across the entire trip... One time Police followed us into a petrol station and paid attention to A-Frame but after a good chat amongst themselves and a few iPhone shots left without comment to us.....   enjoy :)

Hi,
The rack you need is a Fiamma Carrypro CN which the Autosleeper Exhibition Centre in derby recommended for me when we had our Corinium Duo. It is an easy DIY install instead of paying a dealer £100 to fit it. This is a 2 bike rack and adds 61 CM to the length of the outfit and weighs around 6 kg.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This is the same rack, now fitted to our 2019 Bourton.
Cheers,
Boggie
