Compact Junior tires

Forgive my ignorance. I do not have a spare tire for my compact junior and have been thinking of getting a rim and tire. Any suggestions?

You can buy a mounted tire on a rim at most auto supply and trailer supply sources.
My Hunter Compact-II has ST175/80R13's on 4 on 4, 5 spoke, rims that I bought at Arrow Trailer Supply. I have also bought rims w/ tires for our Scamp at Pep Boys Auto Supply. There are a number of on-line sources as well such as etrailer.com.

Appears to be correct, it's the same as I use on my Compact-II.
But there will be a discussion opened on Bias vs. Radial tires.

Yes, it will work. It is a bias ply tire so if you already have bias tires and they are in good condition this would be fine. If you have radials on your trailer you should get a radial spare. If you are going to need new tires in the near future you need to factor that into your decision. In the tire size information the letter D indicates bias ply and the letter R indicates radial. The letter after the aspect ratio (in this case 80 ) is what you need to look for.

ALright, I got the spare with the rim, but now I think it is time to replace the tires on the camper and keep the spare with the rim. This is the tire I got for a spare Loadstar ST175/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire - Load Range C Kenda Tires and Wheels AM1ST76 do you guys know if this will fit the original rims that came with the camper? Thanks!
