Default Re: No spare tire

i don't see how the rapidjack would work on the van. it appears you need 2 tires close together? i do know you have drw on cs but it seems this could only work using inside tire taking off outside tire in rear?[/quote]

I am looking to get a B+ rig such as Pleasure Way Plateau XL that has dual rear tires so I believe the rapidjack will work on those types of RV's.
If it does not then it does not cost very much and I can always return it to amazon.

I would think that the jack would only be good for the outside tire of duals, meaning it would only work on 2 of six tires. I don't think it would be worth my carrying it for that limited use. It would be very nice on a multiaxle trailer though.

I bought a spare tire carrier off a new Jeep Wrangler and bolted it to the rear door of my Promaster. Works great. About $70 in parts and a little over an hour of labor.

Again, that will only work if you have a flat on the outside tire of a dual wheel set-up, not the inside tire and not the fronts.

if you bought a van with no spare you have 2 choices. 1. take your chances-as wincrasher says the odds are in your favor -you either will have no flats-a very slow flat or nail flat that can be fixed(at least temporarily) by the slime or the tow will have a spare tire and rim.

2. if it will cause you worry-even though it probably will not happen-then your only choice is to buy a tire /and /or rim-this is a chioce-and put it on the back somehow-or in your bathroom area i suppose.

... and if you use a Rapid Jack to lift on one of the duals under a loaded van you would likely damage the tire by overloading it.

it is a common tire-however the tire also has to get on a rim. if you depend on them to have a tire you are also depending on having a rim, or the ability to put tire on your rim.
That sounds scary and somewhat unlikely. ..guess I'd better learn about tire kit???

If I didn't have a spare I would always carry lots of food and beer knowing I might be sitting there for a long time waiting for someone with a new tire. I would also carry some wet wood and matches so I could send smoke signals if I was out of cell phone range.
