How to carry a spare?
Good thread topic which I needed. My class C has no spare but I am trying to kludge together a method to carry the tire and wheel. I tow a dingy so was thinking of getting a dual hitch receiver from Roadmaster which is rated for 10,000 lb pulling and 400lb tongue weight per their website. I was thinking a Curt spare tire rack in top receiver socket and tow bar in lower socket. But, when I called RoadMaster to get dimensions of dual receiver the tech support tech said I could not use it to carry an 85 lb spare. That does not seem right to me as the tire and wheel are no where close to 400 lb and the tow bar has very little tongue weight. I do not want to install front hitch but may be forced to. How do you all carry your spare tire and wheel?
