You can't compare this between models. Different trailer model lines have different frames and bumper assemblies. Some can handle the weight on the bumper, some can't. The Jay Feather hybrids all have the same type of frame and can't carry any weight on the bumper. My previous '03 Kiwi hybrid had exactly the same frame type and also could not carry weight on the bumper.

You'd have to find original sales literature to see what kinds of things were options. When we bought our '03 Kiwi, the spare tire was an option. The mount under the tongue was part of the option. If you didn't order the spare, you wouldn't get the mount either.
The current line of Jay Feather hybrids lists the spare in the Customer Value Package and is "Mandatory", that is, it's not really an option.
Either way, you should contact Jayco through e-mail and ask where they would have put the spare if would have come with one.
Geezer, I should have asked, why do you want to move it?
