I have another thought about this. When you have the walk through every bit of your van is inside space. If you store bikes in that walk aisle then most likely you have to move them out at night in order to sleep or during the day in order to use your space for living. Then during the day most will say they rather be outside anyway. So, what about inclement weather? You inside. Bikes outside in the rain?
What I want is out of sight outside items behind the bed, under the bed, behind the sofa or whatever. I'm talking about the bikes (not my personal priority), my two inflatable kayaks, my four lawn chairs (two zero gravity loungers and two director chairs), Coleman grill, Dutch oven, charcoal, screen tent, outdoor utilities, etc., all easily accessible for outdoor use by opening the back doors. There are some Advanced RV Sprinter model designs that can carry two bicycles inside behind the twin bed headboards and still give you that walk through access. Mine won't have either of those two features as I have other priorities. I'm not sure yet, but I will be able to carry all I mentioned out of sight and I may be able to carry in addition to that two folding bikes.
