Does anyone know if you can get one of these for a caddy maxi?

Specifically for the barn door type back doors.

Anyone ever seen one like this?

I need to retain access through the rear barn doors which rules out a towbar mounted one

Thule towbar racks can pivot away from the doors, if you've got a towbar it'd be worth having a trial fit of a rack at your local stockist to see if it gives sufficient clearance for the barn door. When I needed access like this in our Touran I used a 3 bike rack with two bikes on the outer positions to give extra clearance to get the tailgate fully open with the rack pivoted away.

I ended up modifying a T4 barn door one, will add a pic once I work out how to do it
