Default Ezee-Lift for Roadtrek

My friend and I wanted to buy this product for our RT's. It assists in lowering the spare tire to open both back doors. Unfortunately I discovered that they no longer make this product. Any ideas on what else might be out there other than removing the spare tire completely.

Thanks,
Marie

some of us have carriers which attach to the hinges, the tire swings with teh left door



pleasureways use this






roadmaster makes lowering spare tire lifts


there is also a forum member selling his carrier from his RT ( shipping expensive)


my neighbor went with the EZ to increase interior storage- the model he bought sticks out about 2 feet behind the van

Thanks Mike. Swinging out is a much better set up. I could remove the tire altogether but I am not sure I feel comfortable without a spare.

Thanks

I don;t know if this is an EZ brand- it should fit a wheel with a 245/75R/16 tire mounted- but check with seller- you will also need to check bolt pattern spacing as he has a MB

( on some carriers the bolts for the lugholes are somewhat adjustable)


Roadtrek used a 2nd 2" receiver similar to the hitch receiver offset for the mount.


Maybe this will work for you- I really like the added brake light as i know that some mounts block signal lights


also check your local classifieds- craigslist will have a wheel and tire section and also auto parts- check both


did you check roadmaster ?

Mike, do you know if the RT continental tire cover would fit on the tire if replacing with the Roadmaster tire carrier?

For those the have the tire swing to the side, what brand
Do you have? I have a 2013 RT Agile with the tire holder that lowers down.
But it is too heavy and rusted for me to get it back up.
I would love to switch to the side swing out
So I can access the door easier. Thanks

Ditto on the side swing out. Is that even possible and affordable. If so, that would be wonderful.

We bought a Wilco swing away spare tire carrier for our Travato. It swings 180 degrees and allows the rear door to open. Once it’s installed in the hitch, opening it is a breeze. You can also piggyback a bike rack to it. It’s a quality product that fits most Van based Class B’s. It’s a tad pricey, but well worth it

Yes, thanks. A bit too pricey for me though.

Has any one used the Owlvans.com
Tire Carrier NCV3 for sprinter vans 2007-2018?
$898 swings to the side on passenger side. Looks
Good and says a lifetime warranty for original owner.
It says not comparable for vans without magnetic catch?
I’m not sure what that is talking about?
