Hi All
Can you help please. I understand that most if not all RV's do not carry spare wheel. If I were to have puncher/wrecked tyre is there an organisation or club you join that will repair/replace a tyre or is it just relying on the local tyre company to come out?

Hope this make sense!!!

Hi Pete, what size wheels do you have, some are easier to source than others

Although it appears you have no rim to put a spare tyre on, there is nothing wrong in fitting just a spare tyre under your chassis.
Tyre fitters anywhere can fit it for you, finding a RV tyre when you need one is the hardest bit, so a spare tyre on its own has to be the next best thing:thumb:

My spare tyre (not rim, just tyre) is carried in the belly locker sitting on top of the bridge over the chassis between the two sides. Easy enough to get it there and out of sight nearly all the time.

We have a pusher and I was tempted to fit it into the space in front of the Genny and the front cap but was worried about the heat from the genny when we were running it.

I have posted this on another thread before, my spare 295/70 22.5 tyre sits on the slideout tray of my Monaco, I store all sorts in the tyre aswell as in a cut off old water butt that sits nicely inside the tyre:thumb::thumb:

Hi
Quick Fit do a call out service but its expensive. They will supply the tyre and fit it. Personally I woudnt leave home without a spare. If you are a member of a breakdown club they will come out and fit it for free whether its on a rim or not.

Cheers Jim :Smile:

There is a spare under mine. :Smile: Having said that last years trip to Italy was not fun with tyres, two blow outs and a puncture :Angry: Have to say that it was not a problem to get them replaced maybe just lucky I don't know. Had more fun trying to get brake pads as I noticed they were very low when I changed the first wheel, ended up having them sent out from UK.

Its a mystery to me, some do and some dont. I suppose if they dont have too, a lot of manufactures wont simply to cut down on the expense.
Maybe one of our trade members knows the answer.

Cheers

Our Holiday Rambler was supplied with a spare wheel on a bracket below the LPG tank. Maybe depends on the length of the RV as I know a shorter version of the same model (Vacationer) didn't have one or maybe it's an option on purchase.
