Agreed, this appears to be a poor design, but there is not enough room for a tire between the rack and the back of the TT when the rack is raised up in the vertical position. I have the same rack on my Surveyor 5er, and the spare tire is mounted in front compartment under the bedroom. Appears to be a much better solution.
