Lug wrenches were no longer included, starting during the 2012 model run.

Spare Tire For Sunseeker 2250

Thanks to everyone for your posts regarding my question about a spare tire for the Sunseeker 2250. Looks like I will be buying a spare and figuring out the best way to mount it.

Spare Tire For Sunseeker 2250LE

My '14, 2860 has one underneath
Changing a spare on a unit like this IMHO is what a good roadside asst. plan is for (Safety)
I've had two blowouts on a class C
(Not the new one)
While waiting for roadside I secured the spare and both times I was back on the road in less than an hour
I'm really not sure if roadside would supply a spare and/or extra cost is involved (how do they get their spare back?)
Having a spare and Roadside works like a charm
Both blows were on the side of I-95 and I'm here to tell you that Baby shook every time an 18 wheeler went by and I would not be comfortable doing that change by my self

The other thing we did was mount a spare tire hoist underneath to allow the spare to be cranked up and down. Parts can be found online as new vehicle take-outs. The first time you try to take the chained-up spare down or put it back up you'll see why 😳

Agreed. Did the same thing. Also got a factory Ford Econoline jack and lug wrench the same way.

I have a Forester 2251SLE same truck. I don't see any place for a spare I don't think the back wall can support a heavy wheel and tire. I don't worry about it, I have Good Sam and tripple A and tire coverage thru WW. A flat can be fixed right on the side of the road and if its a blowout you need to go for a new tire anyway. Check air in my tires before I leave and I use a tire moniter. Good luck.

If you have a Ford chassis, you could buy a factory spare tire winch from the Internet. A number of owners in this forum have done so. Do a search for threads about it.

Winches for a Chevy may be available but I don't recall seeing it mentioned.

LE no spare.

None of them have lug wrenches anymore. Ford stopped putting them in on "cutaway chassis" with the RV package.
