Spare tire carrier

Getting close to my first trip in the 68 Trade Wind and need advice on the best way to carry my spare on the A-frame. The trailer came with no spare or carrier. I have seen one that was attached to the front of the trailer and I have seen one that was attached to the LP tank hold down. Any pics from anyone with a vintage trailer showing the spare carrier would be appreciated as would any pro's and con's of various suggestions. I am sure there are numerous ways to mount the spare I just need some visuals.

Thanks in advance.

We had our spare put under our fixed bed. It works, and hopefully we will not need it however it is better than us forgetting to take it or having to drag it into and out of a car.

Here's ours on our '64 GlobeTrotter. In our '56 Safari it is under the curbside bed.
