Does anyone know where you should stow a spare tire on the rig?

Congratulations on new coach. Perhaps the best option is to use a hitch mounted carrier. Some folks have contrived an under chassis mount like the ford vans used but most models, I think, have holding tanks in the way. I have a larger class A and Iíve pretty much given up and will have to depend on roadside assistance and replacing my tires every 5 years.

Welcome to the forum!

Use the search tab to find many posts on the pros and cons of taking a spare. Some of us are comfortable traveling without one, but it depends partly on how and where you travel.

I believe some have stowed a spare between the rails in the back by the hitch.

I am usually towing a trailer so my spare is in drivers side big compartment. I put it face down and store canbles in rim.

I tried to put between rails but is too tight on my e450 based unit.

Yes, it’s tight between those rear rails.

And as I said in my post on the other threads...there’s 0 pounds of pressure in the tire/rim during install (or removal) And, once in, I fill to about 20 pounds to completely lock-in place.
And if I ever needed to remove, I’ll need to deflate completely, then lower to ground, then re-fill to 75 pounds or so prior to install.

If you want to change yourself...make sure you carry a bottle jack and a breaker bar with sockets.
Or, in my case, I use my hydraulic levelers to raise the side up accordingly.
