04 trailer spare tire bracket

This is a pic of the trailer used on the 04 Team boat from my dealer.
I believe it was a brand brand new trailer when I left the lot and I've probably not put more than 400 miles on it but the tubing on the trailer has broken away at the weld. Weird

It looks like on my new red one, that the weld line is at the top edge of the tubing where this blue one has the spare welded lower than the top edge and I think it's weaker there.

Anybody with a spare mount, might ought to give it a visual to see that this isn't happening to you

Thanks for the heads up! Took a look at mine and it's welded to the top corner of the frame rail and doing fine.

Good info, Ric. I'd take a look at mine, but if it hasn't fallen off in 13 years (knock wood) ....

After making the trip to Indy I noticed that the weld on mine is cracking at the top. I will give the local dealer a call here in the morning and hopefully they will be able to help me with this. I'm just glad I didn't loose it on the trip.
