Its hard to tell from you profile pic and since you don't have your unit listed in your signature line it appears you have a sabre.
If so the spare tire is located in the front storage bay and hangs below frame ?

I have a 2013 365saq Sandpiper. The spare wheel is located on the exterior under the front storage. It hangs down the full depth off the tire and is flush if not slightly in front of the front lower edge off the camper under the door. The only mod I may need to do is flip the foot on the Steadyfast so it protrudes forward and maybe weld an extension to it so the crossbar clears the wheel enough. Will see. The PIper is a long unit. Almost 42'. Even with xchocks, tripod, rear stabs cranked, and a couple of A frame universal stabs under the frame in a couple of places it still moves as the kids move around back there. The universals helped a lot tho I must say.
If you click on my profile pic is my unit not listed? I can see it when I do. And other people's. just curious. Thought it was visible to all. I do use the app all the time tho. Maybe that's the difference. Thanks for the input.

I have Winfields since they do the side to side WITHOUT drilling any holes. and they tighten better than the thumbscrews. With these, rotochocks and the rear stabs thing are steady.

Try Xchocks first. My V-lite would almost make us seasick with the rockin' & rollin'. The Xchocks have eliminated almost all of it, but not all. It could be a 2 digit fix vs. a 3 digit fix.
