Spare Tire?

While on my first camping trip I noticed that my new TT didn't come with a spare tire. If I had been offered one by the dealer I would have purchased one. Do you have to go thru jayco or are there aftermarket options? Anyone bought a spare tire and rim after the fact at a local tire shop or online?

I can't believe a spare tire is an option. Every vehicle I've ever bought came with a spare, and I just assumed the TT would too.

Mine is also under the trailer but at the rear side of the axel.

The 2013 Jayco brochure has spare tire listed as an option, not a standard feature. My trailer has the enclosed underside, so it's not under there. No in any of the storage areas either.

Mine is enclosed underside but the tire is still under there behind the axles in the center.

I didn't know that. My 2014 came with a spare and it's not listed on the invoice as an option/additional cost item... I will say that I bought a new Haulmark enclosed trailer and a spare was not included.

Maybe you should look over your invoice and see if one was listed.
I opted to buy a matching wheel for my spare so if/when I use it I won't have to fix and change again. I didn't buy thru jayco, it was 4 times the price of buying it from a wheel dealer mail order.

It's not standard equipment on a lot of trailers, now-a-days. Often, though, it's included in the "Mandatory Option Package" that most manufacturers make you buy. If it's not in that package, many dealers include it in their "Dealer Prep Package". I swear, if the manufacturers & dealers had their way, they'd make you pay extra for brakes and lighting in the "Mandatory Vehicle Safety Package", and for a roof, walls, & floor in the "Mandatory Comforts of Home Package". Enough with the games! Just build me a trailer I can go camping in! (Said the guy in the Eagle, watching the 26" LED TV, while typing on his lap-top, and sipping a glass of Pinot Noir)!

They play those games because we the consumer are looking to save pinch every cent out of a purchase. It makes the manufacturer cut every corner he can to make his product look cheaper then the competitors product. so that we will buy it. Then we can raise caine when the product is cheapened up. Vicious circle isn't it!!

I checked the paperwork and there's no mention of a spare in the standard equipment or the equipped options. I'll probably just order a spare online. The oem tires are $77 and I'll just get a rim. Does anyone know how to measure the lug pattern? It looks like for 15" tires you can get a 4.5" pattern or a 5" pattern. Does it say anywhere on the rim itself?
