Van-Swing Volkswagen T5/T6

The Van-Swing is a pivoting module, which is mounted in between the towbar and bike carrier. This pivoting system allows the bike carrier to be swung completely to the side.

The advantage of having the hinge on the left hand side of the van is safety, the pivoting bar swivels to the sidewalk side and not towards the road.

Van-Swing pivoting module with hinge on the left side or right side

A known problem with van conversions is finding a suitable bicycle carrier. Bike carriers on the towbar block the rear doors when these have to be opened. Many are too heavy for bike racks on the rear doors or hinges and the bikes have to be lifted up high.

The perfect solution to this is the Van-Swing pivoting module. By fitting the easy pivoting module to an existing of to be fitted towbar you can use your own bike carrier. You do not have to remove your bicycles or rack when opening the rear doors. The pivoting module gives you the option to swing the bike carrier with bikes open so you can open both doors.

The Van-Swing uses the existing fitting points on the towbar. In most cases the module can be fitted to the existing towbar. If you question if your towbar is suitable, contact your dealer or Memo to check. If there is no towbar fitted yet, we can supply towbars for most vans. The Van-Swing pivoting module is not suitable for towing.

The advantage of having the hinge on the right side of the van conversion:

  • Comfort, you do not have to walk around the pivoting arm to get to the rear doors.
  • Convenience, the right door opens first, the carrier does not have to be opened all the way.
  • Safety, the pivoting bar swivels to the sidewalk side and not towards the road.
  • Convenience, the right door can be easily opened to grab something quickly.

The load capacity of the Van-Swing is 60 kg. This includes the bicycles and the bicycle carrier. That means, if the bicycle carrier weighs 15 kg, the bicycles may still weigh a maximum of 45 kg. Is the combination of bicycles and bicycle carrier too heavy? Then we recommend the Van-Star bicycle carrier, the Van-Star can carry 60 kg of (electric) bicycles.

Because the module is fitted to the towbar the bike carrier is at knee height. This is ideal, since you will not have to lift up high. Due to the use of existing fitting points there are no modifications to the vehicle necessary. The module is available for Ford Transit Custom from 2014 onwards. The module can also be mounted to other vehicles and models by request with your dealer, always consult your dealer. The Van-Swing is supplied with an integrated 13 pin socket to extend the existing socket.

The first in its class to be provided with European type approval!
