We just purchased a Sundance 2900 MK ,Very pleased overall:p, but one concern of mine is the inadequate mounting of spare tire bracket, it is just welded to the thin plate floor of the front storage compartment. It is very floppy and my concern is that it will rip this plate:confused:. I think it should be solidly mounted to the frame. Has anybody had any issues with this mounting, or my concerns unfounded:cool:

Same on our 3300SK, but no problems in approximately 10,000 miles. I was more concerned about the clearance from the road, until I noticed the rearend on my truck is lower. Guess that would bust up anything before the spare would hit it.

Same set up on my 2900rk. I to had concerns about the quality of the spare tire mounting bracket being welded to the flimsy metal up front. so I purchased a spare tire bumper mounting bracket for the back bumper and moved my tire. I had to buy a tire cover as well but that will help keep the uv rays off.
