    Hi I have a SWift Sundance 624FB 2013. Surprised there was no spare wheel when I bought it. Not too keen on a temporary fix with the Kit supplied. Due to the probable need for a new wheel. Has anyone had one fitted and if so can you give me an idea of cost . Appreciate any comments thanks.

    The alko one you linked to is for alko caravan chassis John.
    The Motorhome version only fits the back end and hinges down.
    I could not use one because I have a garage so I made my own for in front of the axle

    I only discovered that my all singing and dancing old ( German) motorhome didn't have a spare after I had a blow out.:Doh:

    You are right to get one fitted :thumb:

    I fabricated my own support, it weighs 12kg plus a 30kg 16" wheel so be aware of your payload
