My opinion is Prudhoe is definitely not worth the trip. Their is nothing to look at except oilfield trucks, and metal barracks.

We just went to the Arctic Circle to say we have done it, and we spent the night there while dealing with a broken fridge hinge. The tundra along way was impressive, but yeah unless you want to check the box on most northern US point, skip Prudhoe bay.

That can work well in the lower 48 and in some parts of Canada, BUT when you don't have cell coverage, that means that the help is even further away. plan for Self sufficiency when traveling to places where population density gets really low.

Why would anyone travel anywhere without a spare ? I see no upside and tons of downside. Having driven the Alcan hwy back in the mid 60's, if your not pretty self sufficient you don't survive. Many times your 100 miles or more away from assistance and could be 1000 miles from a new wheel and tire..

I don't understand why you would refuse to carry a spare, anyone have a good reason?

Doesn't work very well in many parts of the west. You can easily be 100 miles from help, and place your life in peril. Guess it's like the folks that climb our mountains here in Az, take no water with them, then have to have others risk their lives to come rescue them...can't fix stupid I guess.

I purchased a new Michelin tire to use as a spare. I also purchased 4 shiny new Alcoa rims. I'm keeping one steel wheel and selling the other three. These are from my 2016 greyhawk but I know they'll fit back to 2010 and probably further back than that.
If you know of anyone looking for a new rim to use as a spare, let me know!

This spare tire carrier works for me. However, the disadvantage of this over the Wheelmaster is that you can't tow and use this hitch at the same time. I have to take the spare off and put it in the trunk of the toad which is a bit of a pain.

Do you have a photo of that? I have a DS and was wanting to carry a mounted spare and an unmounted one. Planning trip to Alaska next spring and summer.

Pics of spare tire hitch

Hitch spare tire holder.

Darn thing weighs #100 so have a winch to help me get it on the MH. The old back, she ain't what she used to be. I'll be calling roadside assistance if I have a problem.
