Spare tire Hoist?

Has anyone added an under carriage spare tire hoist to their Class C?
Any thoughts are appreciated.

A lot of folks have done it to their travel trailers. Probably about as easy on a class C. Maybe easier.

I removed my Lippert spare tire winch from my old class c and installed on my new class c (2018 Freelander 31BH) recently. In fact, the framing underneath already had been predrilled from the factory to accept this same tire winch. Easy swap.

Was looking at the Lippert winch. Have you had any problems with it? I need a support structure. All I have is a single bolt and nut arrangement. I would assume the tire has a stop to leave enough room for the rod.
Why FR did not put a spare tire winch on the Sunseeker, I will never know.

It's 18 years old but still works like a champ. I used it a couple years ago after a blowout and most recently when I swapped my spare tire to the new rig. The tire rests on the metal framing surrounding the winch and is not flush against the floor leaving room for the handle. Here is a pic of it on my old rv:
