Spare tire suggestion

OK...so got myself a 2018 Avenger 26BH. Of course I find out no spare tire when I'm picking it up. Need to a tire and wheel ASAP....trip planned in just over a week. Suggestions on a good online place would be greatly appreciated.

also, it's not easy finding the tire size. Can someone confirm it's ST205/75R14/C? It's at my mom-in-laws place otherwise I'd just go look at the tire.

Sorry for the new guy question, but that's what I am right now.

Call your MIL and ask her to look at the tire for you. Or take a pic and email it to you.

Ha...well, if only it were that easy. She's not good with technology. I'll call the dealer tomorrow.

No kidding. I asked about it and they said "uh, no, it doesn't come with one" So I asked to buy one. Has to be ordered...that was two weeks ago and no call that it's arrived. Can't wait for needing service from them....insert sarcasm.

Amazing, if you bought that from a dealer then I would have to have a talk, either way it seems it's not a common practice to sell a TT without a spare...could be your bag, good luck.

If there is a tractor supply store near you you can buy one for about $100. That's where I bought mine at for my first camper. Just a thought.

Thats amazing to me that you received it without a spare. According to the specs from the manufacturer, it does indeed come with a spare. I'd have a serious talk with the dealer.

Spare tires are almost always an option.
Most dealers will order them with a spare but some dealers may choose not to, especially on entry level units.

PrimeTime's website clearly shows a spare tire as an option for the Avenger and Avenger is their entry-level TT line.
But my PT TracerAIR, a mid-level line, came standard with a spare tire.
