My Eagle 5er has the under-cabin crank down spare holder so it went right back up where the old one lived. One thing I also did was, after seeing the oversized hole cut in the underbody cover material for the spare letdown cable, I placed a large piece of foam pad (picture a camping pad) above the spare to crank up against the underside. I was worried that road spray and critters would find entrance there. The pad may also come in handy when kneeling beside the RV changing a tire.
As far as whether it's worth it or not, I've only had one flat, on a previous RV, and had to change the tire twice that day, once to get going and again to put the spare back. It's then that I realized that the spare stays virtually new it's whole life. I can now put it into the tire rotation.
