Default Bike carrier (on door) for single rear door WITH spare tire (also on door).

Anyone have any good pictures of a setup like this?

I have a single large rear door with a full width tire carrier. The tire is on the drivers side where the hinge is.

I would like the bike carrier on the door. I do not like the swing away hitch mounted bike carriers. It's a step I have to constantly take in order to open the rear door which I do whenever boondocking for the view.

My idea was to duplicate a mount just like the fiamma on the sprinter or transit that mounts to the door. With the folded tray above the spare tire so the length of the van doesn't change when the bike carrier is folded closed.

This would allow me to never fuss with anything and be able to open and close the rear door without having to take extra steps.

Any ideas?

PS Here is a pic of the fiamma.

I bought a door ladder to which I will mount a ladder bike rack. Reducing the door problem I have with the receiver hitch bike rack. The ladder paid for its self due to having to access the roof AC after the fan blade self destructed.
