I found a product Hide A Spare that looks like it can work under the floor behind the rear axles. Has anyone installed this? Here is some info.

It might be fine, if your trailer is higher than my 31', other wise it will be close to the blacktop....

Having weighed my Classic trailer's individual wheels, I found that fully loaded for camping that the tire with the most weight was carrying about 2,080 pounds. That got me thinking that perhaps a spare could be a much thinner tire since the actual weight carried is much less than the main tire rating and would allow one to limp to a tire store without overloading the other inflated tire.

One reads that if the tailer is pulled on three wheels, one might be wise to put two new tires on that side as the solo tire has been overloaded. In our case, the solo tire would be asked to carry over 4,100 pounds versus the 2,680 pound rating of our Michelin LT225/75R16/E LTX M/S2 tires or the 2,540 pound rating of a stock GYM ST225/75R15D.
