Spare tire

I have a 2014 335 and have been doing some research on spare tires. The more I look into it the more it looks like if you want to carry a spare it should be just the tire. This way when you call for roadside assistance they can actually put on rim a exact replacement. Especially if you in the boon docks somewhere. The Georgetown has a lot of space behind the rear wheels up between chassis, a bracket made of angle iron can be made to hold up just the tire. Any thoughts or experiences?

Interesting idea, rear end there should be room between the back of the gas tank and the end of the MH. Have been under and looked on my but that was a while ago, thinking i need to have another look with this idea in mind. Would not think the extra weight of the tire would be an issue for the frame. If you do figure something out please let me know what you did, might just do something with my 335.

I have a 2012 with 22.5" tires and just went over 41,000 miles and no flats.
I do carry a truckers tire repair kit but never had to use it.
I know being prepared for the unexpected but the Michelin tires are good quality RV tires and if you maintain the proper air pressures cold you should be ok.
I also have a tire monitor that warns me if I'm getting low on air and continuously monitors all tires pressures and temps.

But if you want to buy a spare tire and haul it around a few years, go for it.

Most (probably virtually all) roadside repair vendors have RV size tires readily available. Unless you are traveling outside the U.S., I'm not sure it's worth the expense and trouble to carry a spare.
