Class C motorhomes

Do most class c motorhomes come with a spare tire?

Some models do come with a spare, some don’t. Some don’t even have room to put a spare wheel/tire. Our Sunseeker did come standard with a spare; I made sure of that before I decided on that model.

My Mercedes Benz Sprinter Coachman Prism has the MBS spare mounted between the rear frame rails and the MBS jack and lug wrench under the passenger side floor mat.

In 2019, Forest River had a poster comparing Sunseeker LE features to other brands, including spare tires. With the competitors FR chose for the poster, those other models did not have standard spare tires. So, you’ll want to shop carefully, and if a spare tire is not a mentioned feature, assume there isn’t one included.

If you have a Cordovan spare made in Mexico throw it in the trash. Mine lasted less than 300 miles before throwing a tread and damaging the brake line. Get a good tire to put on the rim.

My MH came with a China bomb spare. Had to use it due to a front tire blowout. Unfortunately the spare had only 50 psi (should be 75-80) and no way to air it up. Drove the 40 miles to home but as far as I was concerned the tire was no longer usable so I threw it away.

Got a new spare now and because I saw how much trouble (and dangerous) it is to get the spare down from its spot I added a winch. If you get a MH with a spare definitely add the winch if it has the normal single nut hold down method.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
