Spare Tire Carrier

I have a Redhawk 26xd and am trying to figure a way to carry a spare tire. None of the storage bays are large enough to hold one. Looking under the rear of the coach, it appears that there is plenty of room to mount a tire there. Has anyone designed some kind of mount to hold a tire under the back of the coach? I am looking at just carrying a tire w/o the rim.

Thanks,
Ron

I'm interested in this as well. I sorta checked into it, I think a cross member may have to be welded in place to mount a small winch like on some pick ups.

I have a 09 Greyhawk SS I ended up putting it under the bed, I had a carrier on the bumper but was in the way towing. I had no room underneath was going to use one of those gm cable lifts for spare but no place to mount on mine

This is what we use... works great, lowers the tire to the ground, and still lets you tow. Got the dealer to throw it in as part of the deal.

This may work. It's called "hide a spare" by BAL. They have several different sizes so you need to measure accurately.

Did your rig come with the spare?

Easier to mount it on the rear bumper and you can still tow.

I checked into this hitch-mounted carrier. A couple of questions I have:
1. I see that it is attached by a bolt to the MH receiver. Is there a way to lock the unit to the receiver since you are not using a normal hitch pin?

2. It appears to lower your receiver about 3 or 4 inches from that of the MH receiver. Is that adjustable? Right now my tow bar is level with my Jeep and I'm not sure I would want to drop the front of the bar several inches.

Thanks,
Ron

I bought a bumper mounted tire carrier from Amazon and mounted it just to the left of the roof ladder and right of the trailer hitch. Mounted the tire and rim and locked the tire with a lock. Covered it with a tire cover and plenty of room to hook up my jeep to tow.

You can get a tire and rim from Discount Tire that will do the job. Did for me on my Jayco Greyhawk 29MV
