I Didn't trust it under there. The winch looks cheap and i seen what happened to a camper that the tire fell off from the winch falling apart and dropping the tire. The tire tore everything up under the camper. 2, one my friends had one that Jammed, It would not go down. Roadside service tech somehow cut the cable so they can get the tire off. 3, I haven't seen the spair tire crank thingy in some time,(YEARS) It is either barried in the basement or one of the kids used it for hotdogs on the bomb fire. What then? Don't ask me how i know this can happen.. A lug nut wrench is always handy. Have multiple means and tools for lug nuts.. Don't leave home without them. AND, Other fellow rv'rs have the same lug nuts.
I would venture bet i could get the tire off the rear bumper quicker and easier than squeezing between the truck bumper and camper to crank the tire down then cranking the cable back up.. lol.. All that squeezing, Bending and twisting.. eeks. On vacation dang it. hehe.. Been there and done that. The bumper was much easier. Now i just open the storage bay, Grab my 18v battery impact and lug extension socket and walk to the back. Braaaap, Tire comes off.. Back to the truck, grab plastic tire aid, tire lifting thingy.. Pull camper up on ramp Braaap, Braap, Braap, Braap, Braap.. Tire is off.. Put spair on.. Braaap,braap,braap,braap,braap.. Tire on.. Toss spare in truck, put impact, plastic ramp thingy and spare tire cover away in storage.. Tire change in less than 10 minutes. barely the amount of time it takes to call roadside. And it was less time than my wife took to make a pot of coffee .. hehe LOL.. By the way.. impact torques at 100 ft pounds. Good enough and tested frequently. on fresh charged before every trip battery of course
No weight bouncing around. It is fastened securely. I have had 4 bikes on my bumper. I mounted a hitch with a bike rack. I have also had a back platform for generator but gave up on that, used it once and sold it.. Tire wasn't in the way either way Plus anything you put back there, your back to "weight bouncing up & down "
Lastly, Checking the air pressure before every trip or screwing on the monitor system sensor was a pain. Now i just pop off the cover and check psi and screw on sensor. No cranking or crawling on my backside.
