this is the one I found. JC Whitney

JC Whitney tire carrier

One folds down $27.99 and one is rigid $24.99. I was worried that the one similar to the one above wouldn't keep the tire high enough. Most of those were for the front of the trailer like a boat trailer.

Here's my new spare tire bracket freshly painted and ready to mount on the rear bumper. I used some 1" square tubing, some 1/2" nuts and bolts, a couple of pieces of pipe as spacers and a few washers. I made it from parts from my "odds and sods" box but all the parts can be purchased at your local hardware [CTC] store and assembled to suite your application. It will have a 1" rubber bushing mounted at the top as a spacer to protect the trailer.

Can you post another picture when you have that mounted, and maybe with and without the tire?

That might have to waite a bit. I found a pair of 8" wheels, at a yard sale,which lowered the rig enough to let me get it into the garage. I just finished putting the second coat of paint on the top half of trailer this AM. I'll let it harden for about a week or so then sand and add the third coat. after that comes the bottom half and a little FG repair. I don't expect to finish now before winter. Next year a new axle. Hope to have it finished for next summer's camping.
But I'll see if I can get a pic of the set up for you if I can squeeze back there with the camera. Too much junk.

Okay!
I got back there and moved enough stuff around so I could get a couple of shots. The top of the tire is about three inches below the belly band and there is a good inch of space between the top of the bracket and the body of the trailer. The bottom of the spare is mid bumper. This is just my own concoction but mabee it'll help
