BAL hide a spare

Anyone familiar with the BAL Hide A Spare assembly that mounts under the trailer and slides out to access the spare tire? Looks pretty cool and accessible. But, not sure how sturdy the rails are. Please comment if you have success with this spare tire carrier.

My Aviator came stock with this type of tire rack. I keep 2 spares on it. If you didn't know they were there, you wouldn't see them at all.

Put one on my Micro Lite this summer. Only one trip with it on at this point, but it seems to work great. See my post about it here:
