Anybody have any suggestions for a spare tire carrier? We bought a spare, but there is nowhere to put it in the storage bays. Is anybody being creative out there? Thanks!

You did not think about that before you bought it?? I think you will find it will always going to be in your way. Do you have a rear ladder and roof rack?? Even if you have I would not want to be the one to put it up there or take it down. I am a retired cross country trucker. I pulled a step deck flat trailer. No place to mount a spare their easier, and I needed the clearence on the back of the tractor. I pulled that particular trailer jusr over 1 million miles with no spare and no regrets. good wisher, old trucker

You do not state what kind of motorhome you have?

On our Winnebago it is located on the underside of the motorhome.

I would try to mount underneath first. If not enough room, I would put a over the rear bumper install. Any good fabrication shop should be able to make one.

The 27' might not have enough room underneath.

If you figure out a mounting solution don't forget the 10 ton bottle jack, lug wrench, and 4' cheater pipe. I was OTR trucker for several years in a previous life and have changed several tires on the side of the road. No fun and not the safest thing to do. The old bias ply tires were much more likely to have a flat. New style radials not so much. I wouldn't fool with the expense and weight. Road side assistance is for that stuff IMHO. Sell the spare and buy a CB in case you're somewhere with no cell coverage. With duals on the rear you almost have to have a steer axle flat to be stuck. Turn on the flashers and easy it on into the next town with a flat on one side of a dual. Be safe though. Use common sense. I wouldn't try that if it's 115 in the desert and it's too far to town. Again, RSA is a good idea. IMHO.

I store a spare in thousands of paces all over the United States. All I have to do is call Coach-Net to have it delivered, and installed.

Mine came with a spare tire rack on top of the propane tank on the passenger
side. Slides right in.
If I get a flat, the guy from road service will have no problems sliding it
out and installing it.

We had one fabed and attached behind the gas tank toward the rear. Is as high as the bottom of the gas tank and swings down to get tire in or out. No rim just a new tire.
