    Caravan owners - I need quick help

    I have a '96 grand caravan, with a factory installed luggage rack. I am going on a trip in 3 days, and I want to take my bike. Is there an affordable system that I can use to attach a bike rack? By affordable, I mean < $100 as it will only be used on this one trip.

    Ideally I could attach the rack directly to the factory installed one, but I cant seem to find anything that explicitly says it WILL work.

    Thanks for any help,
    Tim
    Grit, spit, and a whole lot of duct tape!

    You should be able to get 'clips' that will attach to your factory bars and will allow you to affix a Thule, Yakima, or Rocky Mountain bike tray to your factory rack. Super easy.

    I have 3 sets of Yakima Towers for sale. You will need a pair of Yakima bars and a tray of some kind also. Maybe you could buy my towers and borrow bars and a tray? Go to Yakima web sight and see if any of these 3 towers fit your Caravan.


    See if a set of these will work and PM me!http://http://marketplace.consumerre...uery=retrieval
