What do i need to know about buying a spare tire for a 23ikss.

I am not sure how to make sure it fits my trailer. Please help. Oh, and any advice on where to look or what to look for will be appreciated.

The tire size can be gotten off the tires on the trailer. See the bottom of the attached pdf file on how to measure the hole spacing for the wheel.

Northern Tool has tires and wheels. You will also need the width of the wheel which you can measure.

The trailer I bought was off a lot, so I had no choices, and it did not come with the barbecue or the spare tire. Thanks, I will look at northern tool.

Seems rather odd that a spare tire would be "optional." Its really not something many people would want to be without.

May not be the cheapest option, but seems like your dealer could get one from the factory so you have the tire, the mounting rack, and the cover.

KMP44, it seems it's optional on a handful of campers. I was pretty surprised the first few times seeing it, too!
