Had to modify the design a bit for the Greyhawk but it does work well, thanks again for the inspiration!
Here are my pics:

Thanks! I ordered directly from TECA - http://tecaassembly.com/
My wheels are 16" so I went with the 500-100 RV Winch Assy and a 21" Actuator tube that I had to shorten about 1/2" so I can get my wrench in between the bumper and the coach.
Very good folks to work with, they will invoice you after you receive the parts.

You can do a similar install for your R19.5 Seneca wheels. Here is the install I did on our Embark with R22.5's last spring.

They are the Michelin LTX 225/75 R16 original equipment tires.

You need to add cross-member between the main frame rails to support the tire hoist. You also need to add members for the tire to react against as it is snugged up in place. I used some spare 2.5" x 2.5 structural tubing left over from another project for the hoist and bought 2 @ 1" x 1" angle iron at Sear's for the tire support.

I didn't want the spare tire to become the new low point in the back (got enough of those already), so we worked the design to get the hoist as high as possible.



This is the hole where the spare should be. That angle iron seen on the right needs to be removed.



We side mounted the TECA hoist to the 2.5" x 2.5" tubing. By putting that silver spacer in there, we were able to mount the hoist flush with the top of the tubing.



Here's the TECA #500-100 tire hoist mounted. You can see the angle iron tire supports fore and aft of the hoist.



And here we are with the spare tire mounted. You can see the 3" flat bar side supports for the hoist tubing. You can see the drive tube coming out to the left. A 3/4" socket and ratchet allows you to raise and lower the tire.

I'm getting ready to have a welding shop do this for me. Is this the tire hoist setup you bought if so how much was it?

It's a TECA with the drive tube. Didn't need the heavy duty lifting bar; the short crossbar works fine. Probably $65 to $70 bucks. Link: http://www.tecaassembly.com/rv.html. Troy might not be selling directly from this site but you will know what to search for now.

Thanks for the info, I have the Greyhawk so I'm thinking I need to go with cyclops setup, both are very well done.

FYI...Ford wants $268.00 for their spare tire hoist.
