Spare tire for Greyhawk

I know roadside can bring a tire to you, but I would prefer the added security of already having a spare tire onboard. This way when roadside gets there, they can just change the tire and I can be on my way. Any Greyhawk owners added a spare tire? If so where did you mount it?

Added one to mine - Well added in the large storage bay - not on the frame. the only space i could locate was well behind the rear axle. Maybe not a problem for most but i usually am pulling something (see below). the large storage area gets the tire much closer to the rear axle - and leaves enough space for all the "stuff" I "need"

Thanks, but with the FS I don't have that large storage like the SS or FK. The bunks won with the kids. I have seen a hitch mounted holder that I was thinking if we don't take a car. And then if we take the car then just toss the spare in the trunk of the car.

that would work. in fact i usually keep the "dolly" spare in the trunk of the car. Sometimes the large storage area is a blessing sometimes not....

Angry

Traveling without a spare tire makes no sense. I insisted on a spare being included or would not buy the RV. I keep it in the rear storage area under the bed. Somebody in the industry started the idea of telling buyers that spares just aren't provided nor carried anymore. Too many people believe anything they hear at the RV dealer. So now when they travel and have a blow out they call roadside service for help which could be many hours before you actually get rescued. And then hope they bring the exact spare that actually will fit. This all just makes no sense when it comes to spare tires. All vehicles should have an area to accommodate for a spare.

Other than a Jayco dealer, where else can you find a spare tire and rim? Would something from a wrecked Ford E-450 chassis in a salvage yard work?

A commercial tire dealer with multiple road service trucks should be able to find you a replacement tire and steel wheel for well under $300.
