The advantage if you have your own tire and wheel is if you have say a workhorse 22.5 with the 8 hole pattern and damage a wheel you may find it will take some time to get a replacement wheel.
There is normally a big area under the rear of the frame where a mount bracket can be fabricated to carry the tire & wheel out of sight while being very accessible to get to even with a toad. It would not be something you could load or unload yourself but a reasonably good tire service person could.
You would have to content with the extra weight in the back.
Now thats a shot in the dark. I don't mean to be disparaging but the chances of that happening are about the same as growing a new tire.
Just get COACH-NET and for $90 per year you won't have to screw around with all the drama !
It is my understanding that If you tell Coach Net that you need a loaner tire and wheel to get you in, they can supply that ALTHOUGH in 90,000 + miles in an RV, I have never had a flat.
