Would really like to see pics of the frame work done on this. I like it being snugged up to the back of the coach.

Yes I would too considering that tire+wheel combo only weighs ~70lbs at most, and my Bigfoot levelers are attached there as well.

The max tounge weight on the factory hitch is 500 lbs.. not being an expert here I would guess if your tire is 70lbs you'd have to subtract that from your 500 lbs?

The bonus is I get a 7500# towing rating rather than the 5000# with the stock hitch. They welded a spare tire mount behind the bumper that comes up and out. That way it does not interfere with towing. In short I would not be without a spare!
I never imagined this sub-frame beefup would have to be done on my 2011 Greyhawk 31SS, I guess I'll continue to carry my spare tire in the rear cargo compartment, plenty of room back there but just wanted it under and out of site.

I suspect if you are just going to install the spare tire and mount under the rear of your 31SS you probably don't need the sub-frame beef up however whatever you do will subtract from your GVWR & GCWR. You should weight the tire mounted on a rim and the weight of the mounting brackets and factor that into you allowable loaded weight. I had the spare tire mounted on the back of my motorhome above the rear bumper which required a sub-frame beef up. The 100# tire, mount cantilevered that far back created a situation that required more structure to safely carry.

My 2005 Greyhawk came with a spare. I am glad. When I have a flat I know what is going on my RV. In the eight years three flats and I don't change tires but I do have the spare and road service. A great combo I won't be without.

X2 Would never have a trailer without a spare tire. Never know when or where you will need it.

Curt sells a Siamese mount that allows you to put a spare tire mount in the top mount and your tow in the bottom. Works great. Have used it for the last four years.
