Changed my mind. Gonna leave the spare right where it's at and use this to transport the x-pens. I can store them in the upright position with this carrier. Just picked it up at the local truck store for 150.00. I bought an 8" hitch extension, I believe I'll need it for the coach.

Gonna put it together this weekend, will take a pic to share when its done!

Well, it can't be used to transport in the folded up position. So this is the problem, I have a steep incline driveway and I can't have 3feet hanging off the end scraping the drive in and out. So I have to have a hitch riser about a foot or so to bring it up from the existing height above the bumper so I don't have an overhang....also, the x-pens will fit perfectly inside the basket dimensions, but when I bolted it together, the bolts on the inside stick into the internal dimensions, making me have to stack them the opposite direction. Will hope the hitch folks have a better idea.......

I mounted a 22.5" tire under behind fuel tank
Got the hoist from TECA for $65, spoke with the President Marvin, really nice folks! Mounted it on 11 guage 1x2 steel tube, drilled a access hole and found a gromet for it at the hardware store.

To get it under the RV, I roll it on some PVC sprinkler pipe and then just crank it up.

It will hold a spare unmounted sandwiched between plywood to keep it clean or a mounted spare without plywood.

The square tube across the bottom is not required per Teca but I added it as a safety measure

and..........I call CoachNet to change it!

to carry an unmounted spare I rigged up the plywood a bit to keep it centered and attach to the hoist bar

Wow, you guys make me look bad, that is great having the spare mounted under the coach behind the fuel tank. I am taking it over the the hitch shop tomorrow where I bought the cargo carrier. They have the hitch mounted spare tire carrier there in case the cargo carrier doesn't work with his 10" lifter. One way or another, I'm getting it resolved tomorrow....
