As a general rule, most British made caravans don't support bike racks on the back as there isn't any structure there to hold one.  Usually motor caravans do support racks.

Hi.
As SteveMcV says, you can pretty much assume there'll be no provision for a rear mounted rack for your caravan, plus it's generally recommended against bikes on the back due to weight issues.
If you have a problem with vehicle mounted racks (nose-weight limitation etc), and depending how many you need to carry, then I'd recommend this here for an idea to transport bikes in the van. Better security, weight, access to towcar etc.
