Your right Myron. I thinking about the reflective take like they use on Semi trailers.

That would be the retroreflective tape usually called "conspicuity tape" or (in the regulations) a form of conspicuity device.

Very nice. Did you mount your tire some place else?

I was expecting a debate over whether or not one needs a spare, given recent discussion...

Interesting spare tire mount. I would have guessed that Phil had bought Steve & Sue's trailer, but it's not a TA:

Please visit our Shutterfly page for several photos of the mods, etc.:

In front of the pin box uses otherwise wasted space, without causing interference with the pickup cab. It's a hefty item to place up high, and adds directly to the pin weight, but if you have the capacity, why not? It's certainly structurally sound. I've seen photos of bikes carried there (which would interfere with the cab in most cases), as well as generators (similar situation to the spare), and satellite TV dishes.
