Spare Tire Holder for Greyhawk 29MV

I would like to carry a spare tire & wheel on my 2015 Greyhawk 29MV. I do not want to use a bumper mounted tire mount as I am certain the bumper is not strong enough to carry the weight. The Forest River Forester Class C's have a spare tire mounted under the rear of the motorhome between the rear axle and bumper, I don't know if their tire carrier would fit the Jayco. Has anyone on this forum mounted a spare tire on their Class C, and if so what did you use?

I am anxiously watching your responses, because I have the same question. currently store my spare in the rear storage compartment but would like to get it out of there, and agree with your assessment of a bumper mount.

My 06 Class C Jayco came with an under chassis spare tire mount. As far as I know it was a Jayco option - have you checked with your dealer?

Tire carrier with receiver hitch

Our Greyhawk also lacks a spare. I haven't decided yet if I am going to add one and if so, where to carry it. The rear cargo bin is one possibility.

I am not sure if an under-frame carrier would work. Everything hangs so darned low as it is.

But I did find a Roadmaster hitch-mounted carrier with a pass-thru receiver that would still allow me to hang the bicycle rack on it or even pull my motorcycle trailer. The manufacture says it is rated for up to 400 pounds of tongue weight which is far less than my Kendon trailer with the Honda Shadow on it.

The Greyhawk is the first dual-wheel vehicle we've ever had. So the older 'Hawks came with a single spare? Then I assume that spare would be able to be mounted on the front and on both the inner/outer dual wheel positions?

As I prepared for my Alaska trip, I bought this - Curt Spare Tire Mount

Luckily I never needed it. Glad I had it because even if I had full tire protection package from any vendor, it would not have mattered, as ther were days without cell coverage to call for help...

It looks like the Curt would block access to the rear compartment access door

These rigs have 3 different rims (front, rear inside, rear outside). Can't really see the point of carrying one spare as it's only a 33% (1/3) chance that a blow out would be for the tire your spare would fit. If we assume having a blowout could happen 5% of the time you travel (1 every 20,000 miles), then you'd only have a 1.6% chance of having a proper fitting spare when you need one (5% x 33%).

Why bother?

It's the same rim for all three positions.
