Spare tire for Alaska trip

I am planning an Alaska trip in my 28í Class A. It has one year old tires with about 2,000 miles on them. I keep reading to carry a spare tire. I travel with a rear bike rack and a couple E- bikes. My tires are huge and heavy. How/ where would I carry a spare? Is it ok not to bring one and easy enough to find a replacement on the route?

We took that trip in a class A. Will do it again this summer. Didn't need a spare last trip and don't feel a need for it this year. Highways are paved - except for numerous repair areas of winter damage - just take it slow through those spots.

However, we left our Berk in Fairbanks and took our Jeep toad up the Dalton Hwy to Prudhoe Bay, but with 2 spares. Wouldn't want to be caught on that road with flat tires.

FWIW, I don't think I've ever noticed a class A anywhere with a spare tire.

Between Anchorage/Fairbanks and Fort St John about the only place you're likely to find a replacement tire is Whitehorse. The distance between Anchorage and Fort St John is 1530 miles. So, one possibility in between those two points.

Me personally I took the rear seat out of my wrangler and carried a tire only for the motorhome. I felt like I could change the tire if I had one. The right size would probably be hard to find.
