Spare Tire For Sunseeker 2250LE

I was surprised to find that our 2015 Sunseeker 2250 LE does not have a spare tire. Any suggestions on the best and safest options for securing a spare to the RV?

That brings up a good question...Do spare tires come with any of the Sunseekers? We are planning on ordering a 3050S and weren't counting on having to fork out more money for a spare tire! I guess it was one of those things you just assume. Brian or Joshua...what's the real story???
Thanks

All of the sunseekers I looked at came with spares. Maybe they don't come on the LE series.

I have the same issue on my 2250.......drove it the first summer with no spare. This year purchased a Curt Manufacturing spare tire mount on Amazon that attaches to trailer hitch........about to give a try over the next couple of weeks

All Sunseekers (except, it appears, the LE ) come with spares underneath but no jack or lug wrench. You have to buy them separately if you want to have the capability to change a tire yourself. If you get the Big Foot leveling jacks you can use them to lift the coach to change a tire but still need to buy a lug wrench.

One of the many reasons I went with the sunseeker was the spare tire. Almost went with a Jayco redhawk. They have no spare and come with a warning in the manual about having a qualified technician change the tire. I would rather have the option-to change myself or not- and the spare on board .

Our 2011 year model 3100 Sunseeker came with a spare. A lug wrench was on the coach floor. No jack was included. The spare was a Michelin but it had a date code two weeks from the other tires.
