The only tire carrier I've found for our 23TR is the Ford crank style.....and it's not able to fit because the crank system has nowhere to go.....and Thor put stuff in the place of the carrier underneath.

I'm currently looking at the hitch mounted tire carriers......but they are not cheap.

The BAL tire carrier is a nice idea, but they're not recommended for motor vehicles.

Still looking myself......

Thanks for reply. Under couch looks ok, but I replaced with recliners(love them).
Can mount on my trailer with golf car, but without trailer no spare.

Maybe some kind of ladder mount,if made,weight ect.

Have you considered a hitch receiver spare tire carrier? You could haul tire in trailer when towing, and move it to motorhome receiver when not towing. It'd be extra work but carriers are inexpensive and or easy to build. Your tire and wheel should be fairly light. Or they make combo receiver units that allow hauling a tire and towing a trailer at same time.

I wouldn't attach to ladder, in part because I'd be concern it would damage ladder. Plus you'd have to remove tire every time you'd want to go up on roof.

Another possible option is to mount off back wall (my Class C was like that) but looking at pictures of your interior there is no good place to have a backing plate on inside of MH that wouldn't show. Even so you may want to ask Thor if they offer an option for a spare tire carrier.

Slide on side. No bumper on compass
Got recliners from e trailer,great company. 2 day del.
Couldn’t fit central console , 2 hook together ,fit perfect.
Not cheap (1000.00) but look great and feel great. Seem well built.
Down sized, makes more livable then jack knife couch.
