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...

  • 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.

  • 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 Spare Tire Hitch Mount And Locks For 2000 Ford F-550
  • The Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 will for on your truck as long as it is within the 100 lb weight capacity limit. Another option for your 2000 Ford F-550 is the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006 which doesn't have a capacity rated limit. I recommend using a hitch receiver lock like # e98880 to secure your mount and a spare tire lock like # e98892 to secure your spare and deter theft.

  • 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.

The cap diameter is 5 inches which is typically too large to fit smaller wheels. If you measure the diameter of the mounting flange on your wheel and it's smaller than 5 inches in diameter though it would fit and work well. Otherwise you'd have to look into a spare carrier designed for the smaller wheel diameters like the CE Smith U-Bolt style carrier...

  • Could Erickson Spare Trailer Tire Bracket Kit # EM77316 Fit 16 inch Diameter Wheel

This has an outer diameter of 5 inches so if you compare that to your wheel and it would work fine then this would be a solution that would work well.

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

  • Can Rack'em E-Track Spare Tire Mount be Used on the Exterior of a Trailer
  • Technically you could mount E-track on the exterior of your trailer and use spare tire carrier # RA-16HST. However, it is really best used on the interior of the trailer since the carrier is not a permanent attachment. If there isn't any free space on the frame to mount a carrier such as # FHDSTC0101 then I recommend welding on carrier # 413200 which is normally seen on gooseneck trailers.

  • External Spare Tire Carrier for an Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • Mounting a spare tire carrier, like # 413200 to the outside of an enclosed trailer can be done. You will just want to be absolutely sure the carrier and the tire are both secure. I would secure it by adding braces on the inside of the trailer going horizontal to the frame. Then fasten the carrier through the trailer's wall to these braces. The tire attaches to the carrier using wheel bolts and lug nuts.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation that Can Attach to Side of Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • Yes, If you have an enclosed utility trailer, you could bolt on the spare tire carrier, # 413200, to the side provided that you were to re-enforce the area where the carrier is to be mounted. You can do this by attaching wood cross braces inside the trailer between vertical frame posts. Then, when you bolt the carrier to the outside, you would bolt it through the side of the trailer and into the wood cross braces. You will have to drill holes in the carrier in order to bolt it into place.

  • Spare Tire Carrier for Class A or Class C Motorhomes
  • The tires on Class A and most Class C RVs are too large and heavy for the Stromberg Carlson Spare Tire Carrier # TR-1. They require something a little more serious such as a hitch mounted carrier. We have the extremely stout Roadmaster option # RM-195225 which can tilt and we have the fixed Curt carrier # C31006. None of the other carriers are really strong enough for larger Class A/C tires.

  • 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.
