A road side assistance plan is cheaper than a spare and it doesn't take up any space. Beside, if you do have a flat you don't have the tools to replace it and will have to call for assistance anyhow. As I mentioned in another post you will want a portable grill, folding chairs, small folding side table, outdoor mat. You should also have either a compressor or air lines to tap into your on board compressor for your tires. A 7 ft folding ladder, only way I found to clean a curved windshield, squeegees just don't cut it. GPS, iPad, IPhone or equivelant, and most importantly, a sense of humor.
You should also consider a TPMS as finances permit.

It is much easier to get road side assistance to change a tire ( that you already have ) than have to purchase whatever is available at that time and place ( even if one is available ) over the phone. Worst case with no spare is they would have to tow you in and then you might have to wait days for one to be ordered in. Don't imagine it would be a lot of fun to get towed and spend days waiting for replacement.

Much easier to shop around beforehand and have it available instantly when needed. IMHO

Your signature does not include your rig info. It is a good idea to add it so replies can be tailored to your situation.

IF you are running a 50Amp (4-Prong) MH then I would recommend a 50a female to 30a male dogbone. That will allow you to use a 30a-only site or if the 50a is broken and you can use the 30a until the CG can fix it or move you (next day), etc.

Maybe a fire suppression system too; they are not too spendy.

A good set of leveling pads is a must and I have to add, I just saw where Camping World will bring you out a brand new tire if you blow one, if you have their roadside service. That eliminates the need to carry one of the brutes in your already overloaded Motorhome.

A journal so that you can record your adventures. In the journal you can also make a list of what has to be replentished or what you need for your next trip. It took some time but the MH stuff is the MH stuff. Just did not like to be bringing home stuff into the MH and then back into the home when we got back. Takes some time but that is part of the aventure.
