spare tire and rim

I have a 2011 17C Jay Feather EX-Port and It did not come with a spare tire . My wife & I plan on going from Va. to Mt Washington this summer and would like to have a spare tire and lug wrench just in case . would a 4 way lug wrench work along with a new spare tire stowed in camper. tire size is ST185/8OD13 with 13/16" lug nuts

Welcome to the forum! Yes a 4 way will work for those lugs. A bottle jack is also a good idea for changing a flat. You can check with your dealer but you may be able to mount the spare on the bumper or A frame of the trailer, depending on the unit.

There may be a bracket on that unit (under the propane tank) that carries the spare tire horizontal under the front.

I tried the jack from my TV and it worked well. If you have a two axle camper, you can drive up on a block up on a block of wood to elevate the other wheel and not need a jack.

I went to Harbor Freight and I bough a break over bar and an impact socket set. It'll run about the same cost as a 4 way, but way more usable and easier to store.
