Greetings all,

I'm looking for a smallish tent to house two electric bikes when we are motor homing. There is such a variety on the market ranging from a tenner up to about £200!! There is one at Halfords for £50 that looks OK but would be grateful for any members experience and / or advice.

Many thanks

I would use a big chain secured to the back of the Motorhome then covered with a Taylor made e-bike cover ,excellent quality and will last many years

Just to clarify, are you looking for something for when you are carrying the bikes on the motor home or for something to store them in whilst pitched up?

If the latter I am also interested in something similar for our (non-electric) bikes, BBQ, etc. for use on the pitch. 

So far I have short listed these (but not necessarily sourced from Amazon):

Is this the Halfords one you meant (I've added it to my shortlist):

Hi Roger,

Just to clarify it’s for when I’m pitched up and yes it is the Halfords one I am considering . That said thank you for the links which I’ll check out this evening. Staying in Blair Atholl for the week and off for a cycle to Pitlochry and back today. BlairAtholl site is ‘OK’ with good facilities but pitches are very close together

Cheers

I go with FreelanderUK's advice.  I've found you don't have to secure the Tailormade cover for travelling when on a pitch.  It can just loosely hang over the bikes and it will protect them from the rain and prying eyes.  I would say this is less faff than putting up a tent for which there may not always be room.

I’ve found the Oxford motorbike cover works fine. Packs up small and lightweight

The Taylor made cover is a better fabric than most awnings are made from and you also have the cover when travelling

Maybe Apple carries his e-bikes inside his van and therefore doesn't have a bike rack?  This would make sense as 2 x e-bikes, a rack, cover etc hanging off the back wall is quite a load for a Broadway FB especially if it and its rear axle haven't been up-plated.
