This is the best selling of the Thule bike racks. It has most of the features that you would require at an affordable price. The Thule Elite G2 Standard is the perfect way to transport your bikes safely and securely. It attaches easily to the rear wall of your motorhome or caravan, and features adjustable rails that allow you to get the perfect position for your bikes. Plus, the lockable platform prevents them from moving around during transport.
This version of the Thule Elite G2 is the standard and recommended for caravans and motorhomes with a vertical wall between 80 and 150cm. With a maximum loading weight of 60kg, the Thule Elite G2 Standard can carry E-bikes as well. By default, the Elite G2 can carry two bikes and with optional Thule Extension kits taking this to a three bike carrier then onto a four bike carrier.
Featuring a lockable platform ensures that your bikes will not move during transportation for your safety and for other road users. The platform is locked both in open and closed positions for optimum security and require manual locking for safety.
Depending on your bike’s style, wheel base length and frame size you can always find the perfect position for your bike or bikes to travel safely.
Thule advise, when loading your bikes, the heaviest must be fixed inwards and the lightest must be fixed outwards for correct balancing and weight distribution.
Do I need a Standard Version or a Short Version? This is the vertical distance of the two horizontal fixing bars on the back of the van. This is a standard version so the two bars will need to be 80 - 150cm apart (vertically). This will usually be determined by the position of the windows on the back of the caravan, motorhome or campervan.

Elite For My Sterling Caravan
by John saunders (05 Sep 2021)
Excellent rack which fits easily to the Swift factory fitted mountings - only poor areas are the Thule nylon screws and plugs used to retain the mounting back end caps. Screw heads soft and easily damaged when tightening and then difficult to remove. Overall very good and good communication etc by Leisureshop

Excellent Product, Easy To Fit
by Bob (08 Mar 2019)
Very helpful team at LeisureshopDirect. My Swift motorhome came fitted with the attachment bars, so Bike carrier easy to put on. Instructions were clear, so should be easy to fit the attachments if necessary. Bike rack bigger and bulkier that I expected (from the Fiamma I had on previous motorhome), but looks good on the back. Not used with a bike yet.
A Good Bike Rack
by Alan (07 Mar 2019)
Firstly the service from Leisureshopdirect was absolutely first class, ordered one afternoon and the item was delivered the following morning, I will definitely be using them for any future purchases.
The bike rack had to be assembled, but with easy to follow instructions and extra fittings should they required it was a simple task. From delivery to task complete was under an hour, the motorhome did have both fixing bars already fitted which obviously saved time.
It feels better made than previous fiamma racks I’ve had but I guess only time will tell.
All in all for price, delivery, and product I can’t fault anything.
Great bike rack
by Mr Jacobs (10 Mar 2017)
I thought I would take a look at Thule as a saw a number of people had Fiamma but heard that Thule are better quality. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone. It is definitely better quality and better thought through than the equivalent Fiamma but I guess you get what you pay for!
