This unique IP CVC designed product is lightweight, cool and useful. We designed this kit to work with the VW T25 T3 & Vanagon Rear Door Ladder Base Plates and relevant cargo rail.
While the quality attachments with stainless tie rings take the full weight of the wheel when fixed to the cargo rail on the base plate, the straps just simply hold the week upright and let the wheel cover plate sit in place so you can have access to the door flap for the storage or your muddy recovery gear will sit nicely in there also. You will have something you will need to store in what would usually be dead space in your spare wheel. The wheel plate itself is quality light weight aluminium that has been shot blasted, etch primed and powered coated. The catch can also take a small pad lock to help keep wandering hands out of the new storage area.
Included in the kit –
- Front access plate with all hardwear
- 3 x CVC branded cam buckle straps
- 2 x Stainless steel wheel perches
- 2 x stainless fixing loops

Sensible expectations have to be considered. We do sell uprated rear tailgate gas struts here that we advise you use to help lifting the door with weight on it. The further up the mounting of the wheel, the easier it is to lift the door. Please make sure you allow for the lifting of a roof etc when choosing your wheel fitting location.
