I spoke with a Thule representative and they do not offer a Thule Elite Van Bike Rack for your 2021 Ford Transit T250. I also double checked the fit guide for your vehicle and we do not offer a bike rack to fit the rear of your vehicle. I spoke to a Stromberg Carlson representative about the Stromberg Carlson 2 Bike Carrier for RVs - Ladder Mount - Aluminum, part # LA-102, you attached to your question. They said it was not tested on your vehicle and you would void the warranty if you installed it to your vehicle.

Due to the way the doors open on the rear of the vehicle, you will not be able to use a traditional trunk/hatch bike rack on this vehicle.

My recommendation would be to go with a hitch bike rack instead. You will need a trailer hitch receiver. My trailer hitch recommendation is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2", part # e98842. This trailer hitch has a maximum tongue weight of 900 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs.

If you did decide to go with a trailer hitch, you would be able to carry heavier bikes on the rear of your Ford Transit. I have included a product description link, a video of this trailer hitch being installed on a 2020 Ford Transit T250, and a weblink to our hitch bike racks below.
