  1. If there was enough interest in the A frame design I’d be tempted to make a few up.

  2. I keep mine behind the shed, I’ll never get a puncture :thumbsup:
     
  3. I'd be interested in buying one :)

    Would you get them powdercoated? I'd need instructions on how to mount and would be handy if fixings could be included too ;)

  4. I got the one I did powder coated yeah. Ok well perhaps I’ll look at doing some towards the end of the year (need to get our bus finished and enjoy it a bit). If I get enough people interested I’ll cost it up.

  7. I inherited mine and I’m guessing it’s been on there 6 years at least

  12. Dont bother, Got something like this in the glovebox https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Emergenc...560620?hash=item1a4f4c75ac:g:8x4AAOSwadda~bdm

    As some know I do car recovery, in a small way :) I dont carry a spare on my sprinter just one of these. The local tyre bloke who supplies my tyres phoned me one day and said can I recover him as he had a puncture in his newish merc. He had someone with him so said sorry I cant ive got the 2 kids in with me and only 3 seats, turned out I had just past him in a local garden centre where he pulled in with a flat. I turned round and went back, saw the white gunge that comes with the car tyre repair kit running out the hole in the tyre. At least it marked the hole but nothing else. Popped a plug in and pumped it up and off he went. I carry a vw/audi pump that come supplied as standard, the Halfords etc ones are crap. Leave em in the shed. :)

    Been through this dilemma
    Front mounted spare wheel, deleted
    Rear bumper drop down bracket, never fitted as didn’t want to drill holes in my new stainless bumper
    Last option space saver in original spare wheel carrier
    If you want to try the rear bumper mounting option I still have it

  16. Decided against a front mounted one. Anyone selling a rear mounted one??
