Carrying a mounted spare does not mean changing the tire yourself, and I wouldn't even consider it. To me, it means that when CoachNet shows up,( I have them for over 12 years), that I have a mounted tire that they can switch out, and I'm back on the road.

If you run over something, and have a blowout, you'll have to buy a tire, if they even have one. Some folks have had to wait 2 or 3 days, for the tire shop to get one. That's why I carry a mounted spare.

A very good idea is to not make "Definitive" statements.

The proper statement: ON SOME A chassis, they are different

ON OTHERS (mine for example) they are identical.

Oh, I know they look different....But they are not.

IN fact.. When a rear tire blew early on we moved the front tire to the rear to better match wear patterns. Just turned the rim around (Since it was the outer that popped) and bolted it on... That was like 30,000 miles ago.

So the joke is 3 groups of men were ask "Boxers or Briefs?"

The youngesters answered one way
The middle age another

And the oldesters... Gave the answer I am giving to the Original Poster's qustion: DEPENDS

It depends on the make and model of your RV,, Some are, Some are not.

OK y'all can get off your soapboxes (cap letters). I should have been more anally correct by saying "some". The point I was really trying to make was that carrying a spare tire is more reasonable approach than a whole mounted spare, whether or not it fits all your wheel positions.

Dunno about the "soapbox" thing - I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with occasional use of CAPS for added emphasis which would be otherwise missed in an internet scenario. And words MEAN things. Using the RIGHT one isn't being "anal".

Now, someone who insists on typing in all caps the entire post....another thing altogether. Very bad etiquette.

Thanks for asking as I was asking myself the same

And thanks for all the answers, I now can make a decision based on all the info provided.
