I put one on my 5th wheel, when I got the tire mounted on it and went to put it back into position I realized it was not easy to do. I fabricated a lift jack to lift it into position because once down with the tire on it it was damm heavy....

This is my next project on the 5th wheel. Glad to hear the quality is good.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Nice write-up.
Unfortunately I don't think this would be so easy with my 5er, since the frame is pretty much completely covered. There might possibly be space with enough exposed frame, right at the rear, I'll check next time I'm at the storage lot

Looks like it should work ok but might be heavy to lift into place. Think I'll just keep mine in the truck bed where I do now

My Aviator came stock with this system and I keep 2 spares on it. After my 3 blowout trip last year, I'm considering a third spare in the PU bed. Who would have thought I would have had three blowouts in 350 miles. Glad I didn't have to spend the night in lower Miami off the edge of the road.

What could you possibly be implying about certain Miami neighborhoods ?

This system is on the short list for me. I want to loose the spare mounted on the rear cargo rack. After the axle flip ground clearance of the rack is not longer an issue but I just do not want to deal with it.

I have a 2702WS and can't decide if I should mount this in front of the axles or behind them. Any suggestions?
