This was exactly what we were looking for! Price was in our price range. We have been camping several times. No problems within item. We are extremely happy with this item. 713452

Here's some photos of the installed spare tire carrier which also serves as a fold down stainless steel table on my cooker trailer. Thanks for all your help. 19246

Poor quality. Needs to be a bit more beefy, it has a lot of bounce/flex. Real flimsy for a 235/75-16 Broke weld on first one along with bending the tire hold down plate. The second one I used a ratchet strap to help hold the tire from moving. Wouldn’t recommend for larger tires, maybe a 15”. 782955

I like to carry two spare and this one matches the one I already have. Good quality, fits a four inch bumper just fine. Tire mounts on sturdy and easy. Swing away makes it nice to get it out of the way if you have shower or something back there. Definitely would buy again if I ever need another one. 702696

Great spare tire carrier and easy to install. Directions did say for 15" and 16" rims only, but when looking on the etrailer website it said it would still fit my 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern on my 14" rim (the reason why I bought it.) Sure enough, the wheel mounted right up to the carrier. I bought this because when I got my travel trailer it did not come with a spare tire or carrier and it better to be safe than sorry. I would definitely recommend or buy again. 668996

The product is of top notch quality. Exactly as advertised. Most impressive is the delivery time. Two days from your place (Missouri). If I order from Mpls, it's 4 to 6 days and that's only 200 miles. It will keep the spare tire out of the travel trailer and be so handy on the rear bumper. You've got another steady customer here! 663192

This item mounted very easily on the rear bumper of our Coleman RD202 travel trailer. It appears to be a very solid mount. Once again a very good quality piece from etrailer. 651851

Overall decent product, easy install and straight forward assembly. I decided to weld mine straight to a rear bumper, then when it folds flat I have a place to set up a table on the back side of the carrier, then there's the tailgate for more table, pretty cool. I knocked off a couple stars because a.) There's only one bracer plate for the back of the rimed tire and the "lug" nuts are regular plain jane nuts which means neither is a special keyed one so anyone can steal your tire and b.) the hitch pin to drop the carrier down is particularly small so I made a longer one out of a half inch, six inch long bolt. Fix those two things and it's 5 star. Thank you. 651720

The TR-2 folding tire carrier arrived on time and in good condition. It was well-packaged and all of the parts were there. The powder coating looks good. Other reviewers have mentioned that the open rectangular section bends down over time due to the weight of the tire bouncing up and down. I added a custom bracket to prevent this from happening. See pictures. The bracket was made from an 11-inch long piece of 2-inch by 2-inch by 1/16-inch (16 gauge) cold-rolled mild steel angle iron purchased at my local Ace Hardware. To make the bracket I used a tape measure, a pencil, a heavy vice, a hacksaw, a 2-pound hammer, a large crescent wrench an electric drill, and a can of black spray paint. To install the bracket I used 1/4" bolts, nuts, flat washers and lock washers. I have not yet mounted it on my trailer, but will update this review after I've done so and have used it for a while. 593798

I bought this to replace the undercarriage tire carrier on my 2018 Cougar. I have my reasons for doing this. Nonetheless, moving the carrier to the rear bumper makes it a lot easier to access when needed, I decreased the tongue weight, and I can put a tire cover on it. I also did not want the tire/assembly full of snow/slush, sand and salt this winter in the northeast this December. The new carrier fit perfectly, up tight against the bumper. There is some rotational movement of the upright support with the tire mounted (a previous review may have mentioned this). My 15in spare weighs 48.2 lbs and the carrier has a 60lb rating (hope Stromberg Carlson builds in some safety margin). I will be putting a safety cable/chain on it just in case. 4 stars for now, we'll see after my trip (cross country California to RI back). 563808

Exact match for my factory carrier. I added a second spare and this was a must. However, the nuts to the bolts that are used to mount the wheel were too small and did not fit the bolts. A quick trip to the local hardware store fixed it for a couple bucks, but slightly disappointing. Not etrailer’s fault at least. 527230

No problem with wheel carrier; I need to find suitable location on trailer that will not interfere with "truck to goose neck trailer" rotation, make tire accessible when needed and not interfere with machine when loading flatbed trailer from side. 458252
