    Where do Autotrail Cheyenne drivers keep their spare tyre?
    Or do most motorhomers not bother carrying relying on the Fix and Go standard kit or recovery services?
    Thinking that at the very least to save weight I should carry one spare tyre rather than the complete tyre and rim, I guess that the biggest risk and fear I have is getting a flat abroad and waiting days to get the right tire.


    Any advice gratefully received

    Our spare was underneath on our LMC liberty-at the age of 72 I feel disinclined to lay under M/H to remove spare and replace the punctured tyre in the cradle-also I don't fancy the idea of changing a wheel on a vehicle that size by the roadside.So,I am removing the spare wheel to make room for an LPG tank. This will also free up the gas locker for storage as well as removing the need to carry a jack and wheel brace-we will rely on our recovery people.
    As a precaution I have had my tyres treated with Sure Seal-cheaper than Run Flat tyres :BigGrin:
    This is just what I am doing and I take no responsibility if you do it and it goes belly up :Rofl1:

    Good luck,

    Mike.
