Am hoping 6, possibly with wheels and pedals off, what do you think?
Length:2.13m (7′ 0″)
Width:1.78m (5′ 10″)
Height:1.62m (5′ 4″)
I have managed to fit 7 in a Citreon Berling before (wheels and pedals off, stem loosened and seatpost dropped and then alternated across the van, so you would fit 6 in there easy.
Should manage that quite easily. We did 5 in a Transit connect once, 4 were full bikes and the last had the wheels out. If they all had wheels off there'd of been loads more room. We also had a few bags of kit in there and sleeping bags too.
We use them at work. If you're creative and interlock them, you can get 12 in (admittedly, you have to dismantle them).
We normally take 7 people, 7 (complete) bikes and enough kit for everyone, and it all fits just fine. Take along something to separate them with, otherwise they'll all get scratched up.
Thanks duffer, that's definitely the same size van? There are bigger long wheelbase ones
I have a medium wheelbase, medium roof Transit Crewcab and it easily takes 6 bikes in the back, top to tail with nohing removed.
A SWB would need the front wheels off or some creative arrangement inside.
The photo doesn't match the description, pic is a LWB high roof but the description at a guess is a mwb low roof.
Weight can be more of an issue, 6 big lads plus bikes plus kit plus full tank of fuel and your close to VOSA having a fit in a 280.
Having had a second look at the pictures, ours are slightly different; they have 9 seats in the front, and an internal bulkhead to separate the loadspace. I've tried to google some pictures to illustrate, but there's millions of different variants. Perhaps ours are LWB versions?
Either way, i think you'll be ok.
Dangerous Beans - I tend to load the bikes in widthways on their back wheels, with the front wheel up against the walls. Like this, but much less tidy and with the front wheels still attached:
Most of the time there are 4 of us plus camping gear and assorted outdoorsy stuff which we store down the middle.
Here's a pic with 4 bikes in:
Thanks chaps, I'll try to go there and put my bike in to see whether it fits lengthways
We use a traffic, LWB with 9 seats. With the rear seats removed we fit 7 bikes without anything removed. In that it should be easy. We also have a 350 Movano which takes 9 people and 9 bikes with nothing removed.
Ok, how about this one, which is cheaper!
Width b/w Wheels: 1340mm
I have a partner crew cab. 5 seats in total and with wheels off and being creative you can get 5 bikes plus kit in. The seats all split so you can get 3 bikes with just front wheels off and 3 people easy.
