    just bought a spare wheel for the motorhome, it weighs some 30kg and about 30" in diameter, were do you keep it ? if you put it under the motorhome, how do you lift it while laying down ?

    There is a mounting kit of parts available for under the van. this includes a cable that you attach the spare wheel to and then turn a nut to wind the cable in and lift the spare up against the underside of the van

    an alternative is strap it to a bike rack on the back of the van and put a wheel cover on like many 4x4s have

    You lie on your back. Curse life. Grunt. Fart. And do what a man has to do.

    On Froggy I made a bracket to fit it on the back.

    Underneath is usually best for weight distribution and getting it out of the way. On the back is best for access.

    You could always lift it up with your jack if you can't lift 30kg and the chosen mounting doesn't help you.
