    As weather has been crap lately (very long time now).
    Just sorting out a few bits and tidy up areas.
    Whats the best way of securing the spare wheel in your garage do they make a bracket to mount on one of the walls?
    Thanks
    Jim

    Mine was on a bracket on the rear wall but I took it off.
    A / Because there was no way it would stay there in an accident & would have done a lot of damage as it broke free.
    B / Because with it flat on the garage floor I can move it from side to side so that it is always on the kerb side.

    I took mine off the frame underneath and put it in the Garage, just laid it flat on the floor, on a piece of carpet, and screwed a batton in front to stop it sliding around, because,
    A I didn't want to go grovling around underneath and
    B, I don't expect any Recovery Fella to do that either

    It's a real pain to even lower the bloody thing to the ground, let alone get the damn thing out from under:Angry:

    This is how I secured the spare wheel for our previous Chausson MH, it kept the weight in the centre of the van and never moved a millimetre!

    We didn't have a spare wheel when i purchased the MH.

    It's Transit based so has 6 wheels (all the same) so i thought a spare was essential. I sourced a spare from ebay (never used but not new, a spare from a MH) made a bracket and mounting, its solid as a rock and looks the part :thumb:
