Our 2007 Endura (6340) came with a factory mounted spare tire. It is mounted underneath between the rear axle and the hitch. It has a manual crank assembly to raise and lower the tire. I haven't had the opportunity to do this as I have not had any need to remove the tire. I will try to get underneath and snap some pictures in the next day or so.

That would be great, I would love to see some pictures!

I wonder if this is something that was done by Gulfstream, or by international?

Do you have your ISIS report from international, it might show the part number for the spare tire mount?

The 2007 Endura is almost certainly on a Chevy Kodiak chassis with a 19.5" tire. I don't think any of the International chassis coaches were produced as a 2007 model year. I ordered mine in February of 2007 and it is classified as a 2008 by GS and International. I have not seen any spare tire carriers on the International chassis.

Yes you are correct it is on the C5500 Kodiak Chassis and yes it has the 19.5 inch tires. The construction and placement of the spare tire mount would be close to the same as it is attached to the frame behind the rear wheels. I believe it was added by GulfStream as there were several similar units on the lot when we purchased ours and it was the only one with a spare tire on the unit. If you still want images posted let me know.

Yes, I would like a picture if its not too much trouble. I am doing my own spare holder so any pictures would help me design mine. I can post pictures when I get mine installed to help future Super C owners that want a spare.

I have been running around for a couple of months now with the spare tire mounted behind the axle on my International Gulfstream Gladiator. So far I haven't needed it, but I like having it in case of a flat.

Details:

I took some 1.5" square tubing about 4' long and welded a flat plate to it. I mounted 4 casters to the flat plate. The casters let me slide the tire in and out (assuming I am on a flat surface). I also welded some locating pins on the tubing that make sure the rim is held in place while moving it around and raising and lowering it. I also mounted a large eyehook to the middle of the 4' piece of tubing.

I then welded 2 1.5" square tubes to the frame of the international chassis, and welded some 1/2" all thread to the bottom of these.

I then mounted a small waterproof ATV winch above the spare tire location, and I used the winch to raise and lower the tire. The winch wouldn't hold the tire tight to the frame, but it would raise it enough to engage the all thread rod which can then be tightened up to hold the tire securely to the frame. The winch is connected to the eyehook via a winch hook. I did have to weld the eyehook closed because the winch deformed the eyehook the first time I tried to raise it.

I haven't gotten around to wiring in the winch yet, I was just using jumper cables to run it for now.

I got the winch from Ebay for about $90, and I got them to give me a remote switch instead of a handlebar mounted type switch when I ordered the winch. I think the name of the winch was viper.
