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?

On both our 55 and 66 we have the spare tire rack between the main frame members underneath. It would take a little work, but doable. I believe some also sell the rack, you just have to attach it. You can see what Iím referring to by looking at post #26 on our 55 Flying Cloud rebuild thread. Good luck

We were faced with the same thing when we restored/renovated ours. We have a 64 Safari. I mounted mine under neath the front between the trailer frame. The mount I have is from the AS dealer (same as the new units) and works great. Modifications needed.

Great build and documentation. I love your outrigger end caps!

Welcome Aboard....👍

We mounted it behind the tanks on our 63 safari.👍
I used two 'trucker bungee cords' threaded thru the wheel and around the tanks to keep it off the AS.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions. Looks like behind the tanks would be the simplest to do.
