16" spare wheel carrier. Anyone got such an animal? I may end up making one myself .
The chassis is massive so can't be hard to create a suitable device.
Help / advice appreciated

Made loads, mainly for trailers.
Easiest option is a plate with 4 wheel studs on it, use 2 for bolting wheel on, and drill holes in the other 2 and fit R clips/spring clips, there for 3 reasons, security if the nuts come loose, it holds the wheel in place while you take the nuts off and you put these on 1st to hold the wheel up while you put the nuts on.
Either that or make an hinged frame, sit wheel on frame and then lift it up and bolt it

If Al-ko will not deal with you have a word with Mark @ CLS and see what he can do, no harm in trying.

While fitting my Status 560 today I had a quick look below and realised the reason no spare wheel hangar is fitted is BECAUSE Rapido put the frickin waste water tank there Neutral So it will definitely be a bespoke midship mounting when I've time
