A spare tire rack that fits under the F53 chassis? How's your fabrication skills?
And have you looked under there to see where it would fit? I think most have the fuel tank right where a spare might fit up out of the way. So that leaves a spare hanging pretty low below the frame.

Some keep just a spare tire under the bed if it will fit (no wheel).
Some carry a spare in the TOAD.
Some use the Roadmaster hitch mounted carrier.

Axis/Vegas chassis have enough room between the frame rails for a fabricated spare carrier, the F53 does not (maybe the newer F53 chassis is different?).

There is no space for under carriage spare tire on the F53 chasis. When we went to Canada this summer, I carrried a full spare tire inside my towed Jeep. I really want to get the Roadmaster spare tire carrier designed for Class A. Just too damn expensive. I have a heavy duty multi level hitch mount at home rated for 10K lbs. i purchased a spare tire carrier from Amazon and mounted it to the heavy duty hitch mount. Used it for over 3K miles now and didnt have any problem. No wobble as I used tighteners on every connections. As soon as I see a good price on the Roadmaster, I still want tk get one.

The Roadmaster Spare Tire is fantastic! Its expensive bit worth every penny.

Its great for large and heavy 19.5 and 22 tires. It takes almost no effort to mount the tire and get it locked into place and it is very secure.

Class A Hurricane Motorhome undercarriage spare tire rack.

My MH came without a under carriage spare Tire rack. There is a lot of space between the frame with bolt holes the are for the tire. Please advise where I can get one.

At 150 lbs for tire and wheel how would you jack up the m h and change a flat?
The recommendation is to have a good repair service contract.

I think RoadMaster makes the tire rake that I have mounted on the reciever of my 2018 Windsport 29m. It's the bomb, just loosen the wing nuts, extend the hand rail and you lower it right to the ground. No sore back or getting wet and nasty on the ground. They aren't cheap but well worth it!!!!

Leveling jacks work just fine

Which one? Looks like $548 to me. Add $400 for a tire & wheel. I’ll either use roadside assistance or single it out and limp somewhere.

I just sold mine for $150. Had it listed for months and that was the best I could do. It weighs 70 pounds so shipping is a bear!

I have a Hurricane 29M on a Ford F-53 chassis with 19.5 rims. I was thinking like you but my spare would not fit between the frame rails which would have necessitated mounting it below the frame rails which would have greatly reduced the ground clearance. On my first trip with the motor home I dragged the receiver coming out of a gas station. Just the bare receiver, no trailer, no drop hitch, no nothing. If I had a tire hanging down there it would have been bad. Measure carefully before putting a tire under there. I now have a Roadmaster hitch mount carrier and I tow a small car 4 down. I also watch the slope on driveways very carefully before entering and exiting.
