Any one on here own a Ford Transit kombi / Crew cab van (One with the row of seats behind the drivers seats)- My question is can you EASILY fit 2 full size bikes in the back while keeping at least 1 or 2 of the back seats in the van?
Not into battling and puzzling to fit bikes, gazebo's etc into the van, they must just go in, tie them down and hit the road.

Would look at a sprinter but also want to use the van as a daily driver , a sprinter would just sit around and not be utilized as often. Also a trailer is not an option.

sorry cant answer your question

NO SCUM ALLOWED - You know, Doctors, Lawyers, Accountants.

:icon_twisted::icon_lol:

but i think they will only fit if all the rear seats removed , see people remove the split seat and push the bikes into that gap , but think you will only get one in then

I've got the SWB Transit.
Although its the full on panel van, that doesn't have the extra seats, I don't see how you can fit 2 bikes in there (with the Kombi's seats).
There is just enough space for the 2 bikes + kit.

I'm sure the LWB Transit would be more ideal if you want to keep the seats installed.

George are you 100% sure you will fit 3 bikes in with the seats still in- seems impossible even in the LWB

I would really appreciate the pictures - , as per the pic the van on the far right is the LWB kombi van, a pallet is 800 wide so even if it can take 2 pallets that's 1.6m - A bike is around 2.2 so how does it fit unless the seat are out. Those pics would assist - Thanks you

Its got 3 seats in the front.

Slim perhaps you can enlighten the boys.


Hey buggers longtime.

I had a long wheel base, was a great vehicle. Personally I battled with the driver seat which I found a bit uncomfortable. I believe this has been sorted.

I currently own the new IVECO Daily Code8 low roof. Bigger, more power, load 3 bikes as well as a midway four seater set up with sliding doors.

But Slim I think they want to know if thw LWB could load 2 bikes if it had a 2nd row of seats?

I know the VW can load 1 bike sideways with a 2nd row so hard to believe the LWB Frot would be long enough for 2 bikes straight with seats but not completely impossible.

Iv got a transporter LWB crew bus.
Can load 2 bikes, with 1 rear seat.

I recently tested a Ford, and prefer the drive of the VW.
The price difference between the ford and the VW is pretty big though.

Thanks a lot for the pics, :thumbs up: One thing i can see - this is a LWB panel van converted not a kombi van (You can see there are no windows on the doors) - so they have the row of seats much more forward which is a win and allows more space. Thanks for all the help, much appreciated.
