Lets see your Land rover loaded up

Thought I would test my Flatdog Rax and my Thule bike rack out and it worked pretty well.

looking forward to plenty of trips away.

I am fitting a howling moon roof tent so not sure where the kayaks will go have any of you guys any ideas?

Cheers

Me and my wife travelled around France unto the Spanish boarder about 20 years ago in a Ford Mondeo with an old trailer behind we had a great time.

I am thinking of getting the ferry from Hull to Holland and into Europe this half term try and go skiing ( never been skiing before hahaha should be fun. I am on my way to buy 10 of the storage boxes tonight.

I used to carry my kayaks along the side of the vehicle. Haven't got any of them loaded up but you can see the racks on the side of the roofrack.

Used a couple of wall mounted cycle racks.

Out of interest and nipping to the forest with the bike, have you an extension on the tow hook? does the boot open with the bikes dropped down?


Thanks

Y'know, I think you'd be able to bolt a towball on the back of the Sankey and hang a rack off it with no worries...

This is the way the bike rack is able to get past the spare wheel and yes can totally open the door ,BTW the sankey looks great

^ It must be fun getting the bike ups there, I struggled with my ML, and this trucks higher.


Miss our Van since it was stolen last summer (just prior to our holiday) we have started camping again..... until we decide what to buy..

This is the Landy ready to go to the lakes Prior to be covering it up and bungee strapping it all down Smile


This didn't include the tent as we stayed in a 'Pod' however we like some home comforts so the coffee machine and microwave are in there somewhere Smile As are the rear seats so a big boot really Smile
