Trailer with spare tire???

Do you carry a spare trailer tire with you on long trips, or just the tire repair kit?

Re: Trailer with spare tire???

For a trailer? (I carry a spare). For a bike? (I carry a repair kit)

It is not wise to meddle in the affairs of Dragons for thou art crunchy and good with katsup.

Re: Trailer with spare tire???

I carry a spare and folding lug wrench.

I also carry ghetto turn buckle "jack" that I made to support the LT that fits under the engine for front tire changes on the road - that also fits into the channel of my trailer axle. Idea for the jack stolen from someone on the forum with gratitude.
