Receiver Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Curt, Draw-Tite or ?

Is anyone here using a Receiver Mount Spare Tire Carrier on their Class C?

I have a Draw-Tite front mount receiver mounted on my E 450 Super Duty and now I need a spare tire carrier.

I see Draw-Tite and Curt on the web with 100 pounds capacity. Does anyone have a carrier with the 8 lug Dualie Wheel mounted?

My rear receiver can be now be used for bike carrying and if I ever venture to Alaska I can carry 2 spares

Where are you located?
I bought one for our first MH
And it's sitting in the garage.
I think it will do for what you want.

I live in Cary, North Carolina, which is right beside Raleigh, the Capital and just down the road from the greatest basketball rivalry in North America which is the Tar heels in Chapel Hill and the Blue Devils in Durham

Unfortunately your profile indicates you are in California.

Ok, I have the receiver and now what bracket do I need to carry my spare on. I think the Curt Bracket has the wrong slant to it (better suited to a rear mount on a Jeep or other SUV) and I cannot get an answer from Draw-Tite/Reese if the head on their bracket will accommodate a Ford 8 lug dualie wheel.

Surely there is a Class C owner that has a receiver mounted spare.

I think you will agree the receiver install on my 2014 Fleetwood 25RK on the Ford e450 Chassis is pretty slick:

spare tire carrier

I have the curt model for mine. I have 8 lug wheels, the problem I found was my wheels are 9/16 and the holes are 1/2'' . They make one that folds down and I wished now I would have bought that one. I did make mine where it would fold down it just took a little drilling and welding. I also bought a receiver adapter so I could still use the hitch to pull with.

Thanks for the responses/help on the front receiver and receiver mounted spare tire bracket.

I ordered the Draw-Tite/Reese part # 6715. Upon receipt I will have 4 or more Grade 8 bolts 9/16 (to match the wheel studs I think) welded to it to hold the wheel and buy the correct lug nuts from the Ford dealer to secure it (good to have extra nuts like the Christmas Story- oh fudge)

I guess I will have to watch if the wheel when covered obstructs air flow. If it does then the spare goes to the rear and the bikes to the front.

I went with the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier. I was concerned with restricted airflow if front mounted. I could add a dual hitch extension if I need to tow.

I have ordered the above attachment so I can carry my spare and tow my Genhoe (when I get it)

In the mean time I have my Draw-Tite spare wheel bracket #6715
and have mounted it in my rear receiver:



The plate on the bracket fit the 8 lug dualie wheel for my E450 Super Duty perfectly:



so now all I need is a spare tire cover and a 4 bike rack to carry my wife's trike and my bike in the front receiver.
