The tire rack is the black 1"x1"-ish framework on the underside of the frame clearly visible in your first and last picture. This is a cradle for the spare that lowers to place the spare and raises and locks in place for storage. My '72 Tradewind had the same arrangement.

Online Metal Store | Small Quantity Metal Orders | Metal Cutting, Sales & Shipping | Buy Steel, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, Stainless | Metal Product Guides at is in Ballard... they have alclad, but you'd have to call to see how big a sheet you can get. I think it was more expensive than Airstream Spruce, but if you can pick up directly, you might save money vs buying and shipping to Canada.

They're great folks, easy to work with... custom cutting provided for a nominal fee.

Spare Tire Carrier

I also used that spare tire carrier but left a pocket under the floor to let the tire ride up higher and give more ground clearance.
