Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Spare Tire Carrier - Frame Mount - DL22120 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at an Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier.Now, this spare tire carrier mounts to your trailer frame and moves your spare tire up and away from your trailer, so people who are towing boat trailers really like this type of spare tire mount because it moves the spare tire away from the boat.The unit is constructed of heavy duty steel construction, so it's very strong and durable, and it has a zinc TUFFPLATE finish on it. That is designed to keep the unit protected from rust and corrosion. This spare tire bracket is designed for 9" to 14" wheels with either 4-hole rims, which would be a 4" bolt circle, or 5-hole rims, which would be 4-1/2" bolt circle.It fits trailer frames up to 3" wide, and up to 5" tall, so you can see the multiple mounting holes that we have here. This makes the unit ready for installation onto a 3", 4", or 5" tall frame. Again, that frame needs to be 3" wide or less. Now, frame members wider than 3" do require replacement at the existing mounting bolts, or the included mounting bolts, with bolts of appropriate length.It does come with mounting hardware to get the unit installed onto your trailer, and it comes with hardware to hold the spare tire onto the carrier.

You'll notice that we have three square holes right here. You would place the carriage bolts through the top and bottom center square holes for a 4-hole rim, and you would use the top and bottom corner square holes for a 5-hole rim. They install from the back side. Place them on there. Place your keeper on, which keeps the bolts in place, and then you place your spare tire on, and then you secure it with the included hardware.Now, if you would like to guard against theft, I recommend using a cable lock.

You can place it through the center hole in the top plate, and then through the center hub hole in the wheel to lock the wheel and bracket to the trailer. Cable and locks are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.I just want to go over some basic measurements with you real quick. When it comes to the carrier measurements, this unit features a 4-1/2" side offset, so it scoots it from this point here, out to the plate, 4-1/2" away from the trailer, and then from this point here to the top of this bracket, that's 4-3/4" height offset from the box. This plate right here, this is called the wheel mounting plate. It measures right at 4" wide by almost 5-1/2", about 5-7/16" tall.Again, we're looking at a nice, durable construction.

Everything you need to get it installed is included, and the product's also made in the U.S.A.That's going to do it for today's look at the Dutton-Lainson Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier.

This is a very good quality product. Heavy duty stuff. I love it but it won't fit my trailer. That's my fault because I mis-measured. Wish I could use this product. I really like it. Also Customer Service was very prompt and helpful in the return. I will be back to do business with etrailer.com! 145037

by:

Very impressed with how easy it was to find what I needed. I purchased this product to use on my galvanized boat trailer to hold my spare tire. This seems to be a very sturdy corrosion resistant mount and locks on to the trailer frame very easily....total install time was less than 10 minutes. The only issue I have with this mount is that the bolts that hold the tire on are not the same size as the lugs on the trailer tire. However, I would definitely recommend this product as a quality spare tire carrier. 21898

I bought this tire mount along with a tire for my tandem boat trailer. The quality of the finish and hardware will allow this to last for a long time. The product description and shipping have sold me on etrailer.com. 392585

Received the spare tire holder and lock right on time. Great quality and am very satisfied. Will purchase from here again. 472343

I have a 26 foot boat with a tandem axle trailer. I must travel quite a bit to reach the ocean. Having two spare tires gives piece of mind. I have the exact product on the starboard side of the trailer and have now installed another spare tire on the port side of the trailer. Most trailer frames are either 3" or 4" tall however, the DMH trailer frame is 5" tall and this product fits perfect. One suggestion that I would make is that all hardware (bolts, nuts, washers, etc.) be stainless steel. I noticed that the older bracket hardware is showing signes of rust from salt air exposure. Shipping was very good and I would purchase from this vendor again. 44898

Well made and easy to install. The frame of my trailer is 4.5" and this is the only bracket I found that would fit. 669664

Very good quality and the right color for my aluminum trailer. I decided to take a risk and mount it directly to the sidewalk but it seems really solid. Hoping for years of reliable service... 647134



- DL22120
by:

Seems solid and well built. Easy installation. I had to mount it to the side of the rear bumper next to the bracket so there was less wobble. That was due to the bumper on my camper, not the bracket. We'll find out more as I get more miles on it. 646877

The bolt pattern didn't work but I think I can still use the carrier with a small modification. Trailer bolt pattern is about an inch larger than the carrier bolt pattern. Installation was very easy. 590808

  • Bolt-On Spare Tire Carrier for Aluminum I-Beam Boat Trailer
    Our range of clamp-on trailer spare tire carriers is displayed on the linked page. You will want to choose one to both fit your frame dimensions and your spare's wheel bolt pattern. I like the MaxxTow # MT70214 for its 100-lbs weight rating and compatibility with both 4-lug and 5-lug trailer wheels. This fits frames up to 3-inches wide x 5-inches tall.

    As long as you have the necessary clearance on your trailer to fit your spare tire onto this Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, part # DL22120, and you secure it well you should have no problem installing this # DL22120 in any direction that you wanted.

  • Can Spare Tire Carrier Be Mounted On Trailer Wall
    From the photo you sent, it looks like you have aluminum trailer walls, so the first thing you will want to consider is the strength of the walls. Since the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, part # DL22120 is designed to be mounted on a trailer tongue or frame, you will want to make sure that the location you choose is strong enough and able to handle the weight. You will want to consider strengthening the wall by reinforcing with a metal plate on the inside of the wall between the...

  • Why Can Dutton-Lainson Offset Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 Only be Used with Wheels Up to 14 Inches
    I checked into this with Dutton-Lainson, and the limitation on the # DL22120 offset spare tire has to do with the weight of the 15 inch tire and wheels, and not with the physical size. The welds on the carrier are not rated to handle the weight of standard 15 inch trailer tire and wheels. This carrier has a offset of 4-1/2 inches to the side and 4-3/4 upward. I pulled one from the warehouse and the wheel mounting plate measures 5-7/16 inches tall and 4 inches wide.

  • Offset Style Spare Tire Carrier for 15 Inch Wheel
    We have actually reached out to Dutton-Lainson in the past regarding the specific reasoning as to why they don't recommend using wheels larger than 14 inches on the Offset Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120. They said that it's not the physical size that's an issue but the heavier weight that would be present on a larger wheel. The welds on this particular unit simply aren't rated to handle the weight of a standard 15 inch tire and wheel combo. For an offset style carrier that can support...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Compatible With Aluminum Motorcycle Trailer
    We do not have any aluminum spare tire carriers so unfortunately nothing that can be welded to your aluminum trailer. The best option is to use a bolt on option that is either galvanized like # CE27310G or is zinc coated like # DL22120 or # FSTC1000301 to avoid galvanic corrosion from the dissimilar metals.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for a 15 inch Wheel With 6 Lugs
    I would recommend you get a Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier # FHDSTC0101. This carrier will fit most 6 lug wheels with up to a 16-1/2 inch diameter so it should work well for your 15 inch wheel. The Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 that you referenced will only work on trailer wheels up to 14 inches in diameter so it would not work for you.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendations for a Loadmaster Tampa Dual Axle Trailer
    Out of the spare tire carriers we have, I am sure that we will be able to find one that will hold the spare tires on your trailer. I have incldued a link to all of the options for you to view. Besides the space where you can mount a spare tire carrier or carriers, you will also need to make sure that the wheels have a compatible bolt pattern. For example, the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, # DL22120, is designed for 9 to 14 inch wheels with 4 or 5 lugs, bolt circles up to 5-on-4-1/2....

  • Do Torsion Axles Come with Hubs and How Do they Attach to a Trailer Frame
    We do not currently carry any torsion axles unless you count the Timbren Axle-less systems. I have included a link to the axles that we carry. Torsion axles will normally have what is basically a long L-bracket welded to the top of them. The standard method of attachment is to bolt them directly to the bottom of the trailer frame. Torsion axles are not as easy to order from tractor or trailer supply shops because you also have to consider start angle and articulation. Bolt size 5/8...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for 6 Lug Wheel on a Boat Trailer
    As long as your trailer frame isn't wider than 3 inches and taller than 5 inches, the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier, part # FHDSTC0101 is what I'd recommend. The carrier fits wheels up to 16-1/2 inches in diameter. You can see an install video featuring this carrier by clicking the provided link.

  • Frame Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for Good Ground Clearance
    For an offset spare tire carrier that would mount to the frame of your Little Guy Rough Rider trailer that would be high enough to give you good ground clearance check out the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson # DL22120. This carrier can attach to a variety of frame sizes and would give you great ground clearance. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Typical Spring Deflection of Torsion Trailer Axles
    Torsion axles can have different spindles with varying geometry. The specific spindle installed will have a specific range of deflection angle. The spindles on torsion axles can deflect as much as 4-inches between the unloaded and loaded conditions.

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Trailer Spare Tire Carrier DL22120 Have a Weight Capacity
    The Dutton-Lainson Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 that you referenced does not have a listed weight capacity. This is simply because it's rated to handle the weight of any 14" tire and wheel combo. As long as your tire/wheel combo is 14" or smaller you can be sure that the carrier is up to the task. I have attached a short video demonstration below that you can also check out.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier For Boat Trailer Made In USA
    For your Spare Tire Carrier, I recommend the Trailer Spare Tire Carrier and Dolly Bracket by Dutton-Lainson # DL22144. Not only is this spare tire carrier made in the USA, it also has a really nice function for your boat trailer in that it can be used to help move your trailer in a straight line. This carrier will fit 4 on 4 bolt pattern or 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern with 8, 9, or 12 inch tires. Another option I recommend is the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson...

  • Corrosion Resistant Spare Trailer Tire Carrier

It has a zinc plated yellow chromate TUFFPLATE finish.

  • Spare Tire and Lock Recommendations Between Fulton and Dutton-Lainson
    Lock # 262DAT will fit both spare tire carriers # FSTC1000301 and # DL22120. It is designed to fit 1/2 inch wheel studs. The other lock you mentioned, # FSTL0603, is for 1/2 inch wheel studs. For a spare tire carrier I prefer the Dutton-Lainson carrier # DL22120 because it can fit taller frames (up to 3x5 inch) should you ever need it to and Dutton-Lainson does make a quality product.

  • What Size are the U-bolts Included with RoadMaster Spare Tire Carrier for Tow Dolly Part RM-2000-7
    The RoadMaster Tow Dolly is a 3x3 inch tongue and the U-bolts are threaded just at the ends so they will really only fit a 3x3 inch tongue or trailer frame. Of course you do have the option of buying longer U-bolts if you have a 3x4 or 3x5 trailer tongue or frame. We also have other trailer frame and tongue mounted spare tire carriers you may be interested like Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire carrier, part # FSTC1000301 or Dutton-Lainson Offset Spare Tire Carrier part # DL22120.
