Spare Tire Carrier for 2019 Aluma 6818 ESW Utility Trailer

Question:

Hello. Side-mounted spare tire carrier for a 2019 Aluma 6810ESW trailer, ie, to bolt through the low sidewalls. If possible, I dont want to use the frame locations, which on this trailer are strictly on the tongue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I don't offer anything specifically designed for your situation, with the low sidewalls (more of a lip, really) on your Aluma 6810. You could use something such as the MaxxTow # MT70214 but you'd need to devise your own way to mount it to the trailer sidewall, probably by through-bolting it. It's very possible that the sidewall is stout enough to handle this, but without knowing what the interior structure of that sidewall is I'd recommend you play it safe by making sure you either tied into some of the interior structure or used a backer plate of some kind to ensure the hardware wouldn't tear through. The carrier is compatible with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern used by your wheels.

Barring that, mounting the carrier to the side of the trailer tongue on the opposite side of the trailer jack would be your best bet. The carrier I mentioned fits trailer frames/tongues up to 3 x 5.
