Moving spare tire and left tail light

Has anyone moved the spare over and raised the tail lights on >2020 Roos? The stock position of the spare renders the factory- provided hitch unusable.

Mine isn't a 2020 but the tire mount is just bolted on. I just loosened the bolts and slid the mount to wherever I want it. Mine was blocking the rear storage hatch.

You can see where it is in the lil' photo on the left.

I'm a lucky man. I actually test- fit the Thule rack today and it fits perfectly since all the mechanism lies to the right of the hitch. Yes, it looks torqued clockwise, but that's because the hitch itself is not square and plumb with the frame and bumper. Thankfully that exact amount of rotation allows the rear bunk to come down if I fully extend and fully rotate the Thule rack (I promise never to do this with bikes attached as I realize the hitch may not like that much rotational torque). Bikes on tomorrow and camping on Sunday!Click image for larger version
