Expert Answers about Spare Tire Carrier


  • Choosing Between Roadmaster Spare Tire Carriers RM-195225 and RM-195125
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 pivots down 90-degrees as shown in the photo, but specific rear door clearance on your RV would depend on several factors so we cannot guarantee your rear doors would still be able to open. The things that matter are the tire size on the RV and of course the spare, the hitch height and the RV's own stance above ground, which is a function of the total load in it. My contact at Roadmaster hears customer comments all the time...

  • Spare Tire Mounting Location on Trailer Frame
  • The spare tire can be mounted near the wheel and axle to the frame, but you will want more than 5 inches of ground clearance. I recommend the Extra Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson # DL22145 based on your photo. Every extra inch will help as trailer suspension normally has a deflection of about 4 inches so just 5 inches would be pretty tight but can work in most cases. Another option if you have enough tongue space to mount the tire vertically, you can use the...

  • Recommended Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier for a 2012 Itasca Sunstar 26P
  • Since you should be using wheels that have an offset on your 2012 Itasca Sunstar 26P then you will want to go with the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 (see attached photo) over the Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195125. The Carrier # RM-195125 has a little bit of an extension from the upright to the mounting bracket which helps keep trailer tires with no offset from rubbing on the back of your trailer and creating black marks. Attached is a review video...

  • Can Demco Spare Tire Carrier be Installed on Inside of Enclosed Trailer
  • From the floor to the middle of the mounting bracket for the Demco Spare Tire Carrier for up to 4" Trailer Tongue - Silver # DM15851-52 (also available in Black as # DM15851-76) it measures 13-3/4". Ideally the middle of your wheel will be about in the middle of this bracket so you can use this as a gauge as to whether or not your tire will mount to this in the floor of your trailer. Usually on a spare tire mount the tire will hang below the mounting bracket a little bit but if you have...

  • Can Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier be Used on a Isuzu NPR Box Truck
  • Even though the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier was designed with RV use in mind, since it mounts to a standard 2" receiver you can use it with your Isuzu NPR box truck provided you have a 2" hitch receiver. You need part # RM-195225 for a dually wheel and you need part # RM-195125 for a wheel that doesn't have as great of an offset. I have attached a photo a customer sent in of this carrier being used on their van that you can check out.

  • Will Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier Work With Motorhome and Bike Rack
  • The Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195125 only has about 8 inches from the hitch pin hole to the back of the carrier and my understanding of Fiamma racks for motorhomes are that they are designed to sit pretty low when mounted on rails of motorhomes. What you can do is use this spare tire carrier as a receiver for a bike rack, but you would need one that is rated for use on the back of a motorhome such as the Swagman Titan 2-Bike Rack # S63400. The Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier will...

  • Will Brophy Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier Fit Stake Pockets That Measure 3-1/2" x 1-3/4"
  • Yes, the Brophy Trailer Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier # SPTC will fit your 3-1/2" x 1-3/4" stake pockets. I went out to the warehouse and verified that inserts into the stake pockets measures 3-1/2" x 1-9/16". This is almost identical to the same part on the Buyers Products Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier # 3375201012 which is designed for 3-1/2" - 3-3/4" wide stake pockets.

  • Which of the Roadmaster RV Spare Carrier Should be Used on RV with Mercedes Sprinter Chassis

Unlike the other carrier the # RM-195125 is capable of folding down far enough to allow the rear doors to open.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for 75 Pound Class C Motorhome Dually Wheel
  • I do have a solution for you, however as you referenced, the Stromberg Carlson Folding Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-2 will not work for Class C motorhome tires or dual rim wheels. In order to mount your 75 pound Class C tire, I recommend looking into a hitch-mounted carrier like the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006. This is compatible with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and will provide the capacity needed to safely secure your dually axle wheel and tire....

  • Spare Tire Carrier Compatible with Extension for Truck Bed Camper and Utility Trailer

My recommendation for your application is to use a stacked receiver ball mount like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 16K # 325-GH-514 to give you the option of a spare tire...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier That is Not Angled Upwards
  • I have an option with less of an angle but there is not an option that is perfectly vertical besides the Roadmaster Spare Tire carrier part # RM-195125 like you mentioned. However, the Draw-Tite Spare tire carrier option part # 6715 has less of an angle compared to the Curt. It is also angled out instead of in so the tire is angled dramatically upwards like with the Curt option. I have attached photos so that you can compare the two carriers. The Draw-tite has a universal bolt pattern which...

  • How Can the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Be Secured to Deter Theft?
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier w/ 2" Receiver Opening - 2" Hitches # RM-195225 can be secured with a hitch lock like the B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-3/4" Span - Stainless Steel # BWTS51234. Then you can use a spare tire lock like the MasterLock # 262DAT or etrailer.com lock # e98892.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for a 2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport
  • We do have spare tire carriers like the Buyers Products Spare Tire Carrier # 3375201010 which can be added to vehicles but this is a universal type of carrier so you would need to mock up the product dimensions (7/8 x 6-1/2 x 23-5/8) and see if and how that would allow you to mount your full-size spare under your 2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport. Unfortunately we don't carry anything that would let you mount the tire to your rear door. For an option that doesn't require as much math and testing...

  • Dimensions of Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier RM-195125
  • The Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195125 pivots to the side as opposed to folding down so the height when doing that would only be to the top of the bracket, which is 7-1/2 inches. When it is in the upright position, the overall height will of course depend on your tire, but from the middle of the receiver to the top of the tire mount is 28-3/4 inches I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195125.

  • The type of frame-mount OEM spare tire carrier you describe is not offered as a general-purpose aftermarket product but we do have sturdy hitch-mount spare tire carriers. For a large heavy wheel/tire such as those on your Class C Coahmen Leprechaun I suggest the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire # RM-195225.

If your RV has a 2 inch hitch, and the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the rear bumper is less than 10 inches, you could use the Roadmaster # RM-195225 hitch mounted spare tire carrier.

  • How To Carry A Spare Tire On A 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Cab And Chassis
  • For a road trip we often see the rear hitch is already going to be occupied so a front mounted spare carrier like the # C31006 can be a great option for the front of your Mercedes 3500 Sprinter. A front hitch to mount it to would also be required and the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7352 fits the bill there. This solution keeps the additional spare from taking up space in the van and frees up the rear hitch for towing, cargo carriers, and more. Included...

  • Installation Of The CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier # CE27202 On 3 By 2 Inch Frame
  • The CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier - Locking - Steel - 4-Lug and 5-Lug Wheels - 8-3/4" # CE27202 is designed for trailer frames up to 3 inches wide. You will want to have the brackets screw down all the way to the hub or you won't hold the tire tight. I recommend using the lug nuts # CE11050 and then the brackets and lock. This keeps the tire tight to the frame, the wheel tight and yet centered and unscratched, and then the brackets and lock close to those lug nuts.

For your trailer dolly, I recommend the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Dual Pull Trailer Dolly - 1-7/8" Hitch Ball - Steel - 600 lbs # MT70881 because it has the pneumatic all-terrain tires and the handle and stand to make it easy to operate and store when not in use.

I have attached an image to assist. This carrier is designed for wheels as large as 19-1/2" in diameter. It could potentially support a dually rim but it's going to depend on how wide your particular wheel is. You can use the stud length to determine if it will be compatible with your existing wheel.

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Work On a 2016 Coachmen Orion Motorhome
  • The use of a hitch adapter such as the Brophy Hitch Expander part # HTAD or part # HT5R will reduce the trailer hitch's capacity by 50%. Therefore, your new weight capacity is 100 lbs if using either of the above. The Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier part # c31006 weighs around 15 lbs therefore so long as the weight of your spare wheel/tire does not exceed 85 lbs then you will be okay to go ahead with this. That said, I really don't see any other option to carry a spare...

  • Can Truck Tailgate Come Down When Using Roadmaster Spare Tire Carrier

The carrier comes down horizontally (see accompanying photo) to the side of the bumper, so it depends on the diameter of your tire and where your hitch sits in relation to your tailgate.

  • Will 33x12.5 Wheel/Tire Fit on Buyer's Products 3375201010 Spare Tire Carrier
  • The 19-1/2 inch figure refers to the diameter of the rim, not the 33 inch diameter of the tire. So, as long as the rim the 33 inch wheel is mounted on is 19-1/2 inches in diameter, your spare tire will work great of the Buyer's Products # 3375201010 spare tire carrier. Since a 33 x 12.5 tire is typically found on a 15 or 16 inch diameter rim, the carrier will work just fine.

  • Options for Carrying Spare Tire with 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Cab/Chassis
  • I have a few alternatives that would work for you. The first would involve a spare tire carrier like # C31006 installed into the receiver hitch if one's available. If you don't have one installed, you could use an adjustable width receiver hitch like # 13703. The hitch can be adjusted for frame widths ranging from 22-72 inches wide, so there isn't much it wouldn't fit. If your rear hitch is already being used for something else, you could install a front mounted receiver like # 306-X7352...

  • Can Spare Tire Carrier be Used Under Trailer
  • There are great options for spare tire carriers on your trailer, but I do not recommend using the Buyers Products Spare Tire Carrier # 3375201010 or mounting it under a trailer. Bolting it on, in particular, is not something you would want to do in this instance so if you did decide to use it under your trailer you will definitely want to weld it on. The spare tire carrier I highly recommend instead is the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier # FHDSTC0101 because it will mount your trailer...

  • Can Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier be Bolted to a Featherlite 3110 Trailer
  • Since the frame on your Featherlite 3110 is mostly covered you wouldn't really have any other option but to bolt Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier # FSTC1000301 to the outside of the frame at the front of the trailer. I do recommend bolting it through the frame meaning the hardware would go all the way through. Using the included brackets at the back will also help distribute the force applied to the carrier over a larger area.

  • Can Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier # UF15-954730 be Mounted on a Trailer Frame
  • Yes, provided that the trailer frame is 4 inches square you could mount the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier # UF15-954730 on a trailer frame. Since your frame is smaller (the picture looks like you started measuring at the 1 inch mark on the tape which would make it 3-1/2 inches tall and 2 inches wide) you would need alternate u-bolts and would have to modify the carrier for the alternate u-bolts. I have no doubt that the frame will handle the spare tire without any issues.
