Rear bumper spare tire mounts are cumbersome and ugly, and 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.

With two models to fit every type of trailer frame, installation is quick and simple. The 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.

Tire mounting hardware included. Frame mounting hardware not included.

Only one tire per carrier allowed. Additional Tire Mount Plates not available for purchase.
