Need Rear Stabilizers and spare tire holder.

I have a 13' Scamp but think stabilizers for any size fiberglass type camper would work. I'm in central NYS.

Stabilizers are available from etrailer.com. and other sources. The adjusting rod has to be ordered separate, it's not included with the stabilizers

From the Scamp factory, the spare is attached directly to the shell using three bolts. Plywood reinforcement fiberglassed to the inside of the shell carries the weight. I don't know exactly how it all goes together, since the inside is hidden under insulation and rat fur, but I assume the bolts go through plywood and fiberglass. Whether you could restore the original mount might depend on the condition of that plywood. Are there any remnants of that set-up on your trailer?

I don't know if there is another way to mount a spare. The tongue is pretty full, and the bumper pretty flimsy. You might do a Google site search for "spare tire mount" and see if there are any ideas on old threads.

As he says.. look for the plywood reinforcement piece inside under the rat fur and insulation. It it is there, just drill out the holes, and get three long fully threaded 1/2 inch bolts nuts and flat washers. OR add your own plywood.

That would be right if you have an older unit with 4-lug wheels. Newer ones have a 5-lug wheel and mount with 3 bolts.
