wind up spare tire holder

Hi guys,

I was thinking of fitting a wind up spare tire holder under my 2013 259rbss Puma. Can anyone suggest a good mounting point for this? I am cautious about screwing/bolting to the underside floor as I don't want to damage any cables water lines etc

thanks
Will

Keep ground clearance into consideration too.

This is why I was glad the spare for mine was on the bumper.

And I could not see myself crawling on the ground to unhook the spare from the crank up.

I know the bumpers are pretty light, anyone any issue with the spare wobbling/movement causing stress cracks?

I have the same camper and they put it on the back bumper. I have not noticed anything wrong with it there. The camper before was the same way. I live in Minnesota and personally would not want it under the camper. I still have room back there for a boat hitch.
