I replaced the axle
on my 1982 Scamp
and had to switch from 4 bolt to 5 bolt wheels so I needed a new way to mount my spare tire. The camper is a glorified tent because it has no electric, propane
, bathroom, etc. and only weighed in at about 1200 lbs on my last trip. The tongue weight
is likely a little light
since I can always lift it off the hitch with maybe 100lb effort. Anyway, light
, extra space (no battery
or propane), and a lack of welding skill sent me searching for another way to mount it. Since I didn't find one I thought I would share my pictures here. Not ideal for everyone but maybe helpful for someone's future search. I used slotted angled steel and opted for the 14 gauge from any hardware store.
