I have a hitch mounted swing out carrier being made now. Will post pics when it arrives.View attachment 8234
The spare. I'll mess with stowing it on my days off.
My first choice would be to put it where the donut is. Out of sight, weather and easy to get to. Unloading my junk to get to my spare is the least of my concerns. I know a 10" wide tire won't fit down there without raising the cargo platform.
I hate the idea of losing head room and storage space back there, so it may not prove to be a workable option for me.
A roof basket?? My last two vehicles were a Jeep Wrangler and an FJ Cruiser. The wind breaking over those steep windshields and the roof rack was very noisey. They were about as aerodynamic as my shed.
I'm tying to keep this thing as aerodynamic, good on gas, and as quiet as possible. So the roof option does not appeal to me at all.
I'm thinking about building a hitch mounted tire carrier. I would prolly only use it when I leave town. Problems with this idea are blocking the back up camera and blocking the license plate.
