    Default Spare tire position on trailer

    I finally went out and purchased a spare tire for my outback I am trying to figure out where to mount it on the trailor. The spare is rather large so Im just wondering where everyone else (that has one) have mounted theirs.
    I have the single axle boatmate trailor

    Thanks

    I'd like to see as well. Our spare goes in the back of the Tahoe!

    We have ours on the front side of the trailer. I'd like to get it mounted under the bow but not sure who sells a bracket.

    I mounted mine on the right front side of the trailor. Left enough room for the swing away toung to get by. I found a spare tire mount for a 6 lug tire at iboats.com.

    I have a belly mount spare that came from the factory. when i was ordering my boat, i was told that they (boatmate) could provide some kind of after market belly mount if we could not get the belly mount on at ordering.

    Here is where the dealer mounted mine. It's completely clear of the swing tongue.

    I think I might be able to mount mine near the bow on the side. Its a tight fit. It looks like there might be more clearance on the tandem trailor maybe the bunks are a bit higher. I really like the bracket for mounting under the trailor. Curious what that is worth.
    Ill post a pic when I get it figured out
    Thanks as always for the help guys!

    Cheers

    The bracket I bought aftermarket is an angled bracket so it follows the angle of the hull better. With that your choices for mounting improve. I just mounted minr right front similar to others you see here, but I think with the angle I can get a little higher.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.
