Most motorhome owners quickly realise that their vehicles are not exactly generous in terms of payload to accommodate a rack. This is where lightweight yet robust aluminium racks come into their own, offering a less weighty alternative to steel that is no less tough. There are many advantages to be derived from developing and manufacturing products locally. Our design engineers are able to select the best possible materials for the job and know exactly where to shave off more weight to produce strong and sturdy racks without compromising on stability and efficiency. All Linnepe carriers and rack systems are removable, and almost invariably made of saltwater resistant aluminium, so you’ll find them to be some of the lightest systems in the market, providing you with the perfect combination of minimum weight, maximum stability and total convenience. Aluminium racks have a strength to weight ratio superior to steel. With a load capacity of up to 200 kg Linnepe rear mounted racks are true all-rounders. Unlike other rack systems supplied as motorhome accessories, our racks are available as universal mounting kits so they can be used just as conveniently on any new vehicle as on your current motorhome. Linnepe racks come with EC type approval, which makes registration and MOT inspection superfluous and saves you a trip to the registration office.
Motorhome manufacturers tailor their floor plans to reflect customer expectations, meaning that they are broadly similar and return year after year. For many motorhome buyers, therefore, the ultimate deciding factor comes down to design. Unfortunately, however, most accessory manufacturers are more concerned with the functional aspects of their products, which explains why these accessories often seem to blemish the appearance of the motorhome. Linnepe racks and carriers, by contrast, are consistently crafted to match the design features of modern motorhomes, bringing you the perfect combination of form and function. Thanks to their aesthetic style, the racks look less like an afterthought and more like a deliberate part of your motorhome.
There’s no doubt that electric bikes are on the up and up. Their design, however, makes them heavier than their pedal-powered cousins and often therefore a bit too much for rear mounted racks. This raises the question of how best to transport this weight added to the motorhome. All Linnepe racks and carriers are designed not only to carry a scooter but can also be upgraded or modified for bike transport. This has the huge advantage that you can tote heavy loads as you please. Whereas rear mounted carriers are rated at around 50 kg on average, our racks won’t buckle even under weights of 100 kg or more. So now there’s nothing to stop you from transporting several e-bikes or scooters and bicycles (except, of course, your vehicle’s payload limit). What is more, the rack platforms are so low that you won’t risk putting your back out trying to lift the bikes on and, better still, you can easily push
