Memo Chassis Cycle Carriers for van conversions

Van-Star E-Cross, swing away bike carrier


Memo’s Van star E-cross is ideal for transporting E-bikes and mountain bikes with thicker tires. Easy to attach, easy to load and easy to unload, all without requiring a single tool. The compact and lightweight Van-Star is mounted to the chassis which allows access to the rear doors once the rack has been swung out of the way. The platform is easily foldable and can be locked in both it’s upright and lowered positions. When lowered and swung out, the rack locks in it’s open position preventing accidental closers from gusts of wind.


The bicycle carrier is supplied complete for the transport of two (electric) bicycles, is equipped with a lightboard with cabling and a 13-pole ‘Jaeger’ plug. The maximum load capacity is 75 kg, the carrier is made of powdercoated steel and finished with aluminum parts. The Van-Star E-Cross is approx. 80cm deep, collapsed this is 27cm and the lightboard has a width of 110 cm.

The carrier is available for:

  • Fiat Ducato, Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay/Jumper from 2006 onwards
  • Mercedes Sprinter, Volkswagen (New) Crafter and MAN TGE from 1996 onwards
  • Volkswagen T5/T6
