Anyone know what bike carrier would fit this mount? It's two poles 155mm apart (centre to centre). The guy we bought the van from said it was a bike carrier mount.

I'm looking for a 20191216_191037.jpg 20191216_191046.jpg carrier that can hold 4 bikes.

My guess it is for the standard carrier that hangs the bikes.
We had similar for yeast and it trashed our bikes, by them banging together as we drove. We have gone for ISI and love it. Just drove 5000km for Christmas and nothing moved.
Gripsport looks OK as well

While I know bugga all about bike mounts I reckon the position of those post would mean its damn high or sets well back over the gas bottle shroud otherwise the back of the tug would surely collect a pushy hanging that close to hitch.
All my tugs would clean up anything hanging outside the drawbar within 900mm of the hitch on a sharp turn......my tray back ute would jack knife the bar and clean up everything.
How would you mount rack/bikes to clear that @RobRoy , I have had nothing to do with bike racks, always just threw them in back of Ute.

True Drover, they are usually attached to the tow ball itself.

I'll probably just chuck the bikes in the back of the ute too, once we get a ute. in the meantime, will just securely pack in the van for the first few trips.
