Rear bumper spare tire mounts are cumbersome and ugly. They make it difficult to install bike racks and cargo trays. Plus they add weight and length to your travel trailer. BAL now offers the 'Hide-a-Spare' Tire Storage System that allows you to mount the bulky tire beneath your trailer and out of the way. This system is very easy to mount and if you ever require access to the spare tire, simple to remove. Self tapper screws mount the two plates to the frame for a quick install. A knob and pin are removed to lower the 'Hide-a-Spare' to the ground. It then telescopes out for easier access to the spare tire. Made in the USA. Not retail boxed. Limited One-Year Warranty. 72" L x 12" W x 13" D. I-Beam Underslung mount for trailers with enclosed underbelly.

After an afternoon checking for suitable mounting locations, I was left with just 2. The one chosen was directly behind the wheels. The fall back location was going to be at the very rear of the trailer (30' Cougar travel tailer). The primary restrictions were the heating ducts in the underbelly. They would be one one side or the other from the axels to the front of the trailer.
The other difficulty in mounting is the underbelly covering. On this trailer it extends to the outer edge of the I-beam. It is firm enough that there is limited flexibly to get you hand to the other side of the I-beam. My solution was to put the bolt in from the inside. I used a tight fitting flat washer on the outside to hold the bolt in place. I then slipped the mounting bracket over the bolts/washers and add a flat washer, lock washer then nut. This allowed me to tighten the mounting just from the outside. Worked great.
I spent the majority of time locating mounting points and about half that time mounting it.
I got the spare off the bumper, and easy to install!
tip: just be sure when ya mount this, make sure the drop down/pull out part is on the right side of yer rv/camper, otherwise you will be extending this out into the road to access the tire.
