Burstner has announced the launch of its ‘Backrack+ system’, a new modular carrying solution for the storage of bulky leisure equipment on the rear of campervans.
Suitable for all Fiat Ducato and Citroen Relay-based campervans, it features a swing mechanism so heavy bikes no longer have to be lifted up onto the rack but can be swung into position with very little effort.
Announcing the launch, a Burstner spokesperson said: “Many campervan owners enjoy leisure activities and sports whilst on holiday.
“To ensure that they can carry their sports equipment as safely and conveniently as possible, Buurstner now offers the new Bürstner Backrack+.
“This modular and flexible rear rack system makes it possible to safely carry bulky equipment such as bikes, whether electric or ordinary, or even just a spare wheel and boxes etc., conveniently on the rear of the vehicle.”
The Bürstner Backrack+ consists of a basic carrier that weighs less than 10kg.
Campervanners can then purchase additional accessories to combine them according to their individual requirements, or successively add more.
Burstner Backrack+ Bike Carrier Swing: Swing away bike carrier, swing arm requires very little effort to operate, also suitable for two e-bikes, right-hand door remains accessible Burstner Backrack+ number plate holder and lighting board: Removable additional number plate holder and lighting board for carrier, with functional folding step that can bear loads of up to 100kg Burstner Backrack+ Bike Carrier Shuttle: Bike carrier designed for up to two e-bikes, the right-hand door remains accessible Burstner Backrack+ Spare Wheel Carrier: Spare wheel carrier for all standard spare wheels Burstner Backrack+ Mini Rack: Tiltable platform for carrying transport boxes and similar items, load capacity 20kg Can be mounted on the Burstner Backrack+ at the top or at the bottom
The spokesperson added: “The individual components of the modular Buurstner Backrack+ can therefore be combined in a way that meets the customer requirements to ensure that they can take all of their leisure equipment on holiday with them without it taking up any of the valuable space inside the vehicle.
“Burstner also offers various attractive packs that are cheaper than buying the individual components singly.”
