The plan is to have the work done 5/29. Will post pictures. Not to worried about voiding the frame warranty.

We are livin dangerously with out a spair for now:/ wich is super risky with the still low clearance after the shakle once we get one it will go I back of truck since the inside seem so delicate and the floor is a bugger to clean

Spare Wheel mount on the rear of Airflyte

OK. Here it is. Please note that this is not mounted to the bumper but the bumper rail. Road tested- no issues. Had it professional installed and required some modification and re-enforement. The U bolts are for show only to fill open holes. This is also a 19ft model.

Did the installer fabricate the spare tire holder? Or did he start with a pre-manufactored part and modify it? If the latter please provide part number and source. By the way it looks really nice. My wife isn't thrilled I'm going to put a spare tire under the dinette as a footrest.

Hello,

I know he (JD Trailer and Hitch) started with a prefabricated part but I do not know which one. Sorry I don't have the part number. The total project was $300 including parts. He may can create a kit for you if you want to give him a call.

The way he set it up I would not have been able to do it myself. You really have to make sure there is zero movement in the mount so it does not bounce against the trailer.

We used a Ford f-150 spare tire hanger and mounted to A frame...works very well and frees up a bunch of room in the forward cubby...
