Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Cargo Control C31006 Review

Today we're going to review part number C31006. This is the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier. Now, this is a universal spare tire carrier that'll fit in any wheel bolt patterns and installs into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. Now, this carrier will fit on a front or a rear mounted hitch receiver. It's made of a nice, durable black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. Now, the hardware, if you'll notice on here, it has two horizontal slots and one vertical slot, and that's where you would mount your wheel and tire up to here to carry your spare tire. Now, the hardware to mount your wheel on to here is not included with this part number.

It does require three bolts and nuts to attach that spare wheel to the carrier. What I would recommend, if this is going to be used on a trailer, I would recommend using half inch nuts and bolts to attach your wheel to this carrier, since most trailers use half inch nuts on their wheels. That way, since your spare will be held on with half inch and your trailer will be half inch, you'll be able to use the same lug wrench that you remove the wheels on your trailer on this carrier. Now, if you are going to use this spare tire carrier on a vehicle, you might try to get the bolts that hold the spare tire to this carrier the same size as the wheel lugs that are on the vehicle. Again, that way you can use the same lug wrench for both the vehicle and the spare tire. This does measure 24 inches tall to the very top. From the bottom to the very top is 24 inches tall. Now, the weight capacity on this spare tire carrier will be the same as the tongue weight capacity of the hitch that's installed on it.

If your hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, this will be able to hold the 350 pounds. You just want to make sure that the weight of this spare tire carrier, and the weight of your wheel and tire, will not exceed that tongue weight capacity on the hitch. Now, I do want to give you a few measurements. If you'll notice, you'll see that the actual mounting upright does angle back a little bit. I wanted to give you, first, the dimensions from these three pinhole locations to that upright, and then I want to give you the dimension of how much it angles back. Right now, if we go from the very closest pinhole to the upright, from the upright to the center of that pinhole is five and half inches. If you go to the middle hole, from the upright to the center, is seven and a half inches.

If you go from the upright to the center of the farthest hole is nine and a half inches. Basically, those holes center to center are about two inches apart. Now again this does angle back, so if I drop a straight edge down here, right about there you can see that it's about three inches. Try to give you an idea here. It's about three inches. This very top part will be angled back, so just to give you some measurements on that. Now, what I'm going to do is, I want to move this table out of the way, and I'm just going to show you how it installs on to a hitch receiver, so let's just move this table out of the way. Okay.

Then with the table out of the way, we have a display post here. I'm just going to try to show you. There's a two inch receiver opening, so, basically, you would just take your spare tire carrier, slide it into your hitch, line your hitch hole up with the hole on the carrier. Again, there's three choices, so you can put it, this is the furthest one. You can even put it to the closest one. Use whichever works best for you. Then use the clip you already have or lock, whichever you're going to use on that. Then you can see, once you've attached this down, then you'll be ready to go. I have an example here of the wheel. Then you'll just bolt your wheel. You'll line two holes up just like that. The two bottom holes will line up with those horizontal slots, and then you'll line up your bolts and nuts with the top hole in the vertical slot. That's how it'll hold your spare tire on to your vehicle or your trailer. That should do it for the review on part number C31006, the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier. .

Excellent delivery time. Great product. Easy to install. Only drawback is there are no bolts shipped with this product to attach the spare tire. We bought several different things to try to mount this tire carrier. Finally bought the correct ones after 3 trips to Lowe's. Very satisfied! 67824

The trailer hitch mounted tire carrier is well made, was as advertized, was delivered in a timely manner. The tire carrier will be used with a front mount trailer hitch receiver to hold the spare tire. The truck camper on my truck doesn't allow access to the spare tire in the standard location under the bed. This is a tidy solution to the problem. 72663

Curt makes an excellent product. Strong, sturdy and reasonably priced compared to other manufactures designs which I did not care for. I installed a Curt receiver hitch on the front of my 2500HD and am using this to carry my spare tire since converting to 19.5 wheels due to hauling a heavy slide in truck camper. 143045

  • Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier For a 39 Inch Diameter Tire on a Motor Home
  • For a trailer hitch mounted spare tire carrier, I recommend something that is designed for that purpose, like the Curt carrier, # c31006. We have had one customer put a 33 inch diameter tire on the spare tire carrier, # c31006, and possibly a 37 inch diameter, but not yet a 39. The carrier is a universal fit item. Basically, if you take a look at the mounting surface dimensions and pattern in the pictures I have provided and they will allow your tire to be mounted to it, it will fit...

  • Do You Have a Spare Tire Carrier Designed for a 2 inch Receiver
  • We do have a spare tire carrier that mounts into a 2 inch receiver. The Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier, part number C31006, is a very nice mount that is easy to use and can be used with locks to secure the spare to the carrier and the carrier to the vehicle. You will need a hitch pin and clip or lock to secure the mount to the vehicle. Either the # PC3 Pin and Clip or the # 63232 Anti-Rattle Device and Lock would work well with this product and to secure the spare you...

As long as the hitch that is on your Class A Monaco Monarch Motor Home has tongue weight capacities that are above the weight of the carrier and wheel that it would be carrying you would be fine in that regard. As long as you can get two bolts through the mounting plate of this # C31006 you would be able to secure your spare to the carrier. This carrier can accept a wide variety of...

  • Spare Tire Mount Recommendation for Trailers with Limited Frame Space
  • We do have a couple different spare tire mount options for you to check out. You could go with the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Systems, # RA-16HST, that you referenced, but you will also need an E-Track rail. For this I recommend the 4 ft Vertical E-Track, # E19146. The E-track system was primarily designed to be installed inside of an enclosed trailer, but you could install it on the outside of the trailer if you would like. I do not recommend installing it on the side of the trailer...

  • Bolts Needed for Mounting a Spare Wheel and Tire to the CURT Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier
  • You would need to find grade 5 or harder bolts, nuts and washers that match the wheel stud diameter of your wheels to mount a spare wheel and tire to the CURT Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier, # c31006. It would also help to use a nut that matches the lug nuts for your wheel so you do not need an additional wrench to remove the spare from the carrier. Most trailer wheels use a 1/2 inch diameter wheel stud, so 1/2 inch hardware would work well, check to be sure of the wheel stud...

I went out to the warehouse and measured on the angle from the center of the tire mount and the distance back down to the support bar at 15.78 inches is 8 inches. This is why the angle is built into the item, so that...

  • Availability of a Trailer Hitch Mount Spare Tire Carrier that Will Fit a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • We do not carry a trailer hitch mounted spare tire carrier for a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but, you could use a 2 inch, like # C31006, with a reducer like # 80303. I have included a video review of this adapter below. Please note that when using an adapter, the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch is reduced by 50 percent. If you are just using the spare tire carrier and a tire/wheel on it, you should not have to worry about that reduction.

  • What is the Height of the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier I have 20 inch wheels
  • At this time we do not have a picture of the Spare tire rack, part # c31006, in use, but I can tell you the height of the unit is 24 inches from the bottom of the receiver shank to the top of the carrier. From these measurements I believe the spare carrier will work for you. Along with the spare tire carrier you may want to consider the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches, item # 93347. These items will help keep the movement and noise of the the spare tire...

In order to determine if your 26 inch wheel will fit, I have taken some measurements and made some pictures for you to view. You can also get a piece of paper and draw a triangle on it that measures 6-1/2 inches across at the bottom and 7-1/4 inches long on each side.

Although you could drill additional holes in the tire mount that would match up with those of the pintle mount, the two pieces really are not meant to work together.

  • What Hardware is Needed for Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Spare Tire Carrier # C31006

Or, to deter theft, a locking hitch pin like # 7683.

From the bottom of the bumper, measure up approximately 15 inches, this is about where the center of the top wheel bracket will be. Then take half the diameter of the tire and measure back down to see roughly where the bottom of the tire will be. This is all approximate but it is a good start.

I found that the furthest forward part of your spare tire would sit directly above the last hitch pin hole (see photo).
