my solution

Had a std tire carrier welded to bumper when I went from 13" to 15" wheels. The allthread was shortened but left intact to support the top of the carrier by double nutting.

Tom and I made a camping trailer a few years back . it was only to hold the equipment and to pull behind the jeep. box about 4x6 and we bolted the spare to the tongue, then put the tank inside the wheel. worked great. but as you can see it didn't work in the picture. so my proportions are off. :lol

this picture was somebody else's drawing. I just tweaked it.. You know me and tweaking. (thanks to whom ever the artist of the trailer was, sorry I can't remember to give credit :red )

I might try this

If this doesn't cause too many clearance problems under the tongue, this might be a solution.

A question: My trailer did not come with a tire carrier anywhere. (The tire was on the floor under the dinette.) If this under-tongue solution does not work, where would I get a carrier for the back bumper, which allows the tire to rest on the bumper?

My solution

Sorry if you've seen this picture elsewhere, but I thought it appropriate for this thread.

Working out where to put tire took a lot of thought as you all have been doing.<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f00c26fa577brackdown.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f00c28689cf6rack-up.jpg/>

Suz,

I had the same problem when I converted to 14 inch tires and I looked at all of the solutions offered by factory made tire mounts. I purchased one like the one in the photo that Joe posted but the tire hung so low that hit the pavement when going over any small dip. The solution was very simple. I just cut a new disk to replace the one that Casita made from scrap fiberglass and drilled the hole off center to compensate for the larger diameter tire and wheel. I made the new disk out of an old plastic cutting board.

Spare Tire Rack

Thanks for the tips. Somehow, I ended up with two threads on this. Here's what I finally came up with. I have been extremely pleased with it. It not only cured my spare tire dilema, it solved my light tongue weight problem, also.
