Class A Spare Tire Carrier
« on: September 18, 2017, 03:17:44 PM »
I'd like to have a spare tire and am looking for ways to store it. I'm thinking of some type of mount to carry it under the chassis frame in the rear of the coach.

I can fabricate most anything but need some design ideas.

Is there a commercial unit available?

All thoughts and ideas are welcomed.

Thanks,
Tom

If you have 19.5" wheels you might have room to mount a tire under. Both of my Damons had a spare mounted under the rear with a cable lift. My coach has 22.5" wheels and I don't have enough room to mount a spare under it, without it hanging down too far. I've been thinking about modifying the hitch to accommodate an extension to mount the spare like some of the older coachs had. Problem I see with that is, I'm not able to get the flat back up there even if I needed it, but then again I don't think I could even change the tire anyways. I have Coach-net but still worried about not having a spare tire along. There is enough room for an unmounted tire in one of my cross over bays, but it barely fits. Won't fit if it's mounted on a wheel even if left flat. That tire takes up a lot of room in the bay, but I'm not a full timer so I can spare the room.   

Hows your coach running since the tune up?

I should have mentioned that I have 22.5" tires.

I wouldn't try to change it myself. But I'd sure like to have a tire available when road service come to help.
