Spare tyre

Anyone know of where to get a spare tyre holding bracket for the trailer? Damn thing just gets thrown into the boat at the moment and is a bloody nuisance.

Any prices also would be helpful.

Thanks

How about bolting a spare wheel hub onto the trailor, holds the wheel and you get a spare hub too ,other than that what about welding or bolting some threaded rod on.

You can make on quite easily.
A lenght of st.st stud iron, 8mm/10mm thread.
Bend in vice the square shape (for my trailer box section), ensuring it will pass through the wheel holes.
Make a holding plate, rectangular with two 12mm holes, to fit the bent shape.
Then assemble -threaded bar around the trailer box section,then put on spare wheel ensuring threaded bar goes through two holes, fit on plate and tighten two nuts and washers (Nyloc nuts).
Watch where on trailer you fit it, front/back (it will go in the water every time you put your trailer in), and what orientation as you don't want it to collect rainwater.
All bits from B&Q for a couple of quid.
Worked for me.

.. or saltwater. This is a good point and reminds me of a mate who had his spare rusted to sh1t before he realised.

Many thanks everyone who has contributed to this. Towsure do indeed sell a solution - they are out of stock at present -but it has given me an idea that I can follow up in B&Q!!

Thanks
