Spare tire mount

Any recommendations on where to mount a spare tire and wheel on a 1962 Safari? I would prefer not to mount on the rear bumper as I only have 450 lbs of tongue weigh. If I remove the battery box on the front I'm afraid there still would not be enough room behind the propane tanks. With a tonneau cover on the bed of my truck the tire must lay down and uses a lot of rea estate. What to do?

Spare tire mount

On my ‘61 and ‘63 I mounted it behind the propane tanks. Of course I removed the battery box on the ‘61.
Tight fit but it goes in there.
