Welcome to the Forums

My neighbor has one- he is happy with it.
He got a cover for it ( tires and AZ sun and a bad mix).

I does stick out quite a ways but the tire is easy to get off if need be, and he says feels tight on the road.
Just be careful backing up!

yes he does, a Pleasure Way- with a 2" receiver hitch...
I didnt ask about weight rating- you should look at that and make sure..


( my chev has a 500# rating on hitch- luckily my spare mount is mounted w left rear door)

Default Wilco spare tire carrier

We bought the Wilco swing away spare tire carrier. We chose the swing away type in case we had an emergency while weíre inside sleeping, and couldnít get out thru the slider or front doors, we could exit thru the rear doors. A fixed tire carrier would not allow us to do that. Itís very well built and although a tad pricey, it fits our needs. Once itís swung away, the rear door will fully open. We bought it directly from the manufacturer. It does cover some of the license plate, but depending on your stateís laws, you may not need the optional plate holder. Itís extremely well made and very sturdy.
