Well made and easy to install. I replaced bolts with 9/16 bolts with lug nuts that fit my vehicle.


Good quality and heavy duty. First delivery was when I was out of town and the carrier was sent back to etrailer. I called customer service and they resent it with no extra shipping charge. Thanks again for the great service! I’ll definitely use them again!

Exactly what I need but a few minor things which reduces it to between 4 and 5 stars. The retainers do NOT hold the bolts in place so they slide around while installing the tire. Quite frustrating. I used a lock washer and nut to hold them in place after adjusting to fit my tire. The multi-tool is pretty useless. Overall quite pleased with this purchase.


Just what I was looking for, a spare tire rack with a little extra room behind the tire for Gas cans.


etrailer could have done better on their description of this item. They do not address locking this item to your receiver. I ordered the 5/8" lock, which fits every standard hole on all the receivers I have seen. But, the hole on this item will accept only the 1/2" lock. now, I have to have a machine shop make the holes bigger, this is less hassle than trying to return my 5/8" lock for a 1/2" lock. Then I ordered the lock for the wheel and I saw the note about keyed alike. I mistakenly thought that the wheel lock and the receiver lock would be keyed alike for $[XX]. I was wrong, but etrailer should have noticed that I did NOT order any items that could be keyed alike and should have deleted that from my order or at least sent me an email to clarify my error. My rating is based on the fact that the holes for the lock should be larger to fit the more common hole size on most receivers or at least make that fact known in their video. they even have pictures showing a receiver lock on this item, another opportunity to say to use a 1/2" diameter lock.


The spare tire mount that came with our motorhome was not strong enough to securely hold the heavy spare tire. etrailer recommended the Mount-n- Lock HiLo Hitch receiver and the etrailer Hitch Mounted Spare Carrier and the combination worked out very nice for us. My husband and I are in our mid 70's and we were to do the instillation ourselves with the help the inclosed directions and some online videos. The hardest part was lifting the heavy spare tire onto the carrier.


Extra parts made the install a piece of cake. made all part the experience easy, including install/product review video.

Sold with the trailer in April 2023


I was very happy with the item. It's solid, well welded, all the tools I need plus the bolts and nuts included. I am especially pleased with the extra support piece that sits to support the upright tube that holds the tire and horizonal tubes that connects to the hitch. This fits my off-road small camper. I don't rock crawl, but I do go off road on all my road trips.


My heavy duty pick up truck tire only 2 of the bolts will match the lug nuts. The tilt to the angle of the head makes it so it pushes in to the back of my vehicle. Needs to be more straight-up-and-down with the bigger tires.



I have used the tire mount for a year now. Even though the super duty bolt pattern will only let two bolts hold it to the mount, it has stayed secure.


I purchased a used class c motorhome with no spare tire setup. It was an easy installation onto the hitch, but very difficult putting the heavy tire on afterwards. I probably should have put the tire on first before placing on the hitch. Almost no movement or shaking, it’s very secure.


Use it on my square drop camper for the spare tire and it works perfect.


This is a sturdy but to me somewhat awkward shaped. It sticks out more than I like. It was quite difficult to get the tire attached and could only get 3 bolts on to secure it. Directions were good, would like to have had more detail instructions for how to install the tire on it, like which side should be facing out, etc. Fingers crossed that it stays on.

I believe that I have a video that may help! Please take a look at the link below.


Great product. One question do you have locking devices for the etrailer unit into the trailer 2" square holder and lug nut locks as well

We do! Part # e98892 is an example of a lug nut lock we carry, and part # e98880 is a hitch pin lock that should work with your spare tire carrier.


This worked great for adding a spare tire for our new teardrop trailer. I like the fact that the bolt provided holds the jack nice and tight in the bitch receiver. Well made product and great customer service from Paula! Thanks!


This is what I needed to make room in my trailer for more cargo.

Perfect wish I knew about this a year ago.
cut our bumper off to install a more heavy-duty installation. Doing this we lost our spare tire mount. So we stored it in the front of our 5th wheel where it just bounced around. But with this mount we no longer have to store it up front. We no longer haul a boat so this works perfectly. And now we found etrailer we are making all our rv purchases through them. Thank you etrailer.

Been a year got a email asking me hows it working? So before i wrote a response I went out and gave my spare a good yanking on. And been a year and everything is as tight as the day I installed it. I couldnt be more happy.


Nice tire carrier. Worked great for 2000 Roadtrek Camper van.


I was excited about this item. But after the install i tried to open my hatch back and found that it doesnt clear the tire carrier. Its an inch to far in. Im sure anyone that ordered this item would have the same problem. Its obvious that the carrier was never modified to correct this issue. It looks great but its useless as it is. I actually have to remove the entire carrier in order to open my rear door.

Depending on how far under the bumper the hitch receiver is, the carrier may or may not extend far enough to be able to open the rear hatch. On this spare tire carrier the hole closest to the upright bar measures 3.75 inches from the center of the hole to the upright. The furthest hole from the upright bar measure 6.25 inches from the center to the upright. You can use a part like part # Y02483 that will swing away from vehicle in order to give clearance to open the hatch.


Very quick delivery, it even came a day early. Nice online tracking. Good price, very solid steel spare tire mount for my SxS. It is already mounted. Some very nice features like a screw in trailer hitch pin that I think will eliminate any rattle. Also, hardware included. Very happy. Thank you



Works great. Very solid and heavy duty. I used a U bolt with a bracket to stabilize where the stinger slides into the receiver to eliminate any wobble there. Very happy with it.


Very well made, the tubing is of heavy gauge. It weighs 16 -lbs.
Getting ready to install on my Mule Pro.



Still working great, I love it.


Very sturdy and does its job. Just what I needed.


Worked well for my Polaris Ranger. Only thing I didn't like was the 1/2" hole for the pin. Should have been 5/8" to match most common receivers.


There is a lot of slop when fitted into the 2" receiver. Needed to order an additional part to correct the play so that the tire and bracket fits snuggly onto the back of the trailer. Thought it would fit tighter. Somewhat disappointed, but will make it work.


Quality spare tire carrier received on time and in perfect condition. Since I was installing it on the front of my van, I had to use a 6" extension to the receiver. This should have it far enough forward to allow good airflow to the radiator.


Fit perfect on my Jayco Redhawk !!!
