Why didn't someone think of this before? With a spare tire carrier you can get back on the road in no time, keep your tires matched, save valuable cargo space and still tow whatever you want behind your motorhome. All while saving money - carrying your own spare allows you to control the cost. The proactive approach to a flat tire: With a ready-to-go spare, Roadside Assistance can get you back on the road quickly. You have a place to put your spare, without taking up any valuable cargo space.

Since you don't have a spare (because of their weight and size, hardly any motorhomes come with spare tires) you call AAA and wait. Not a bit deal; within an hour you'll have a new tire and be on your way. Except that AAA doesn't carry spare tires. They have to take your tire back to Phoenix and hopefully find the right size, fit it, balance it and drive it back. That can take hours and leaves you wide open to paying some predatory tire dealer whatever he can get. Adding to that feeling of vulnerability is your long wait alone in the gathering darkness, listening to the coyotes.
