Bonus Score.....

Gracie has a spare in the front bunker and it can be extracted from either side. It is mounted and inflated to boot.

While at the train meet I was chatting with a buddy I haven't seen in years and he was telling us about their trip across Canada a while back. Somehow the conversation got around to toads and he mentioned he had all the gear for towing a Jeep 4 down and braking same jeep with the brake buddy unit. Being he was present and with a tow dolly for his PT cruiser I asked about the towing system. Needless to say when he explained the base plate, tow bar and covers, all electrical hookups and safety chains along with a full Brake Buddy was to be had for $3 bills I was immediately compelled to buy the system from him.

Now to get the base plate hooked onto my Jeep.

Pictures So It Musta happened.

Here's two pictures of trains that came to play. The first is a huge Northern Class steamer up from Brooks Oregon and the second is of a CP Mikado that was built by a club member years ago but given to a younger member who moved to Edmonton. The loco was brought to VIME so that the original builder could see her all rebuilt and ready to travel the rails again.

There is one attached to the back of Honey with a cover on it. I never bother to remove it.... I think when we bought her new shoes, they traded one for back there so it's not as young as the ones on her wheels currently.

But, we don't full time, try not to load up too heavy, and haven't really been that far... since getting her new then shoes, she's been to Yellowstone,Arkansas, Texas, and back out west to Utah and Idaho and home again. Mostly otherwise, we are pretty local with the camping....

My class C came with spare mounted under the rear of the coach. I assumed it was identical to the 6 tires on the ground. When Michelin recalled the factory installed tires, I was expecting the spare to be recalled as well, but it wasn't a Michelin. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

I would never try to change it myself, that's why we pay for roadside assistance, right?

Stay sage!

Like Marty... my class B came with a spare hanging on the back door. Hung there for 20 + years. Never used it.

Listen to Jeff. Consider on duals and a flat occurs the one inflated tire is carrying the load for whatever distance. Without professional inspection it would be impossible to know if the inflated tire was damaged

Not me. Roadside assistance and since Michelins are hard to come by I switched over to Toyo M154's. Only difference is that the speedometer shows 1 mph below what I'm actually doing, but the I drive by GPS MPH and not speedometer.

With that bag of wind you don't need a leaf blower, just hold him by the ankles and let him walk on his hands. (Just kidding Larry...)

A lot of good information on Roger Marble's blog (Tireman9)

We do not haul a spare around the country.

With multiple tire problems out west a few weeks ago, we ended up with a worthless new tire that was installed in Indiana before we left. We ended up having to haul the tire back to Indiana on the roof of the HHR because the seller wanted "and needed" to see it. We have no place in the MH for a spare (except the roof and the stairs to the roof). Our basement isn't a "see through" basement so a tire of that size doesn't fit anywhere in the basement.
