I just came across this on YouTube and thinking of getting it. My camper doesn't come with a spare, and this may work. AND, if I can fit 2, may consider one for the Jeep's spare, since it has to be removed for towing.

The only draw back I see with this set-up is laying on the ground to get at it should you ever have a flat tire. Trade offs with everything.
Anyone with a flat tire on a pick up know this dilema. crawl on the ground then scrape dirt off the hardware after you release the tire. Is this crank down or loosen bolts and drop? I think I prefer bumper mount.

I made the bracket with one center threaded rod with a round plate that fits the hub diameter of the wheel. One nut holds the assembly up in the carrier. As to your preference for the rear bumper mount.....to each his own. I just wanted to share what I did with my trailer. I will take the laying under the trailer for a few minutes if the need arises. The nice clean look of the rear bumper and no flex stress issues is worth the hassle for me. Just my 2 pence.

Where can you buy one? I am carrying my spare in the truck bed, because I don't like it on the cargo rack that my vcross comes with. This is a great solution, I think.

Here is the email I got from BAL.

Matt,

Thank you for your interest in our BAL Hide-A-Spare. Since this is a relatively new item not many distributors are stocking them yet. Once you decide which model you need you may need to have your local RV supply store special order it for you. Or you can contact www.campingworld.com; www.colawrvs.com; or www.nonstopshopper.com. They all are very good with special orders. Delivery will depend on our available inventory.

We had quite a bit of wobble in our spare.

First thing I did was chop out the extra 1.5" space between tire and upright.
Now tire is snug to bracket. Most vibration is gone, but I would still like to relocate tire to the underside.
