This Rack is supplied with a 973-18 kit for a VW T5 and T6, it may also fit others. Rear mounted cycle carriers are not suitable for the majority of vehicles with rear spoilers. Rear lights and numberplate must not be obscured, if this is the case a lighting board and additional numberplate are required by law. High mounting position allows for lights and numberplate to remain visible on most cars, vehicles with high positioned rear lights. We do also have listed the extra components to make the rack a 3 or indeed a 4 bike rack, please see our other items.
