Do you have a bike rack? That could carry a spare. Failing that, certain parts of the rear panel are probably reinforced to take a bike rack, so a spare wheel carrier could be mounted on those parts.
Sorry, I can't be too much help. Our 2010 Chausson came with no spare wheel, but the mounting bits were there on the chassis behind the rear axle, so the dealer swapped the spare, and its carrier, over from our old van (both Fiat X2/50 Camper chassis).
I have no spare fitted on my x250 mooveo and would also like to fit one.
Which chassis is yours Gerald ?
hi spike64. i was going to put my spare on the back like my last m/h autotrail Dakota but the bike rack had priority. my idea was go to a scrap yard and get the fitting to hold the wheel to the m/h & buy a cover from these people . if you take this route make sure the back can take the weight .back to the other option under the chassis you can get the spare wheel Carrier from ALKO but i was quoted £200 plus so i made my own scrap yard for the wind down mechanism and the local blacksmith who supplied the 20mm round bar e.t.c and wielded it together cost £40. if you look under the chassis you will see where the carrier goes ( ALKO CHASSIE ).jud
The weight of a spare wheel wont be any heavier than a bike rack with 2 bikes on it so if you dont have a bike rack fit a rear wheel carrier.
If properly fitted (and it isnt hard) they are fine. a rigjid cover is a good thing to to keep it clean. Nice and easy to check the pressure there too.
