Video Transcript for Rackem Spare Tire Rack Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the Rackem Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers, part number RA-16. This rack features a unique and durable hammered paint finish, and it will last for many years. It allows you to securely transport spare tires in your enclosed trailer. You have multiple attachment points. The multiple attachment points allow you to adjust the height of your spare tire or carry an additional tire. Additional holders are sold separately with part number RA-16HST. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the rack, let me show you how to get this installed into your trailer.

As you can see, we've got a nice, large hook here. Typically, for the rounded-top enclosed trailers, that's going to be made to go right over the top edge here into that frame runner or that rail that runs up and down. Now, in our case, we're using a flat-top, so right behind this board, we've got wires that run the length of the trailer, and we certainly wouldn't want these coming over there getting into our wires. Plus, you can see it's not the thickest plywood in the world that they've used, so what we've done, we've taken the 2x6. You can see it here.

We've beveled the back side of it, and that allows for a perfect fit when our rack inaudible 00:01:20 just slid down on top. Let's just take our screws and start putting them in. Please keep in mind the hardware is not provided. We're now going to remove the wing nut from the stud. Slide the spare tire over the bracket. As we do that, we'll want to place our bolt through one of our wheel stud holes.

We can then replace the washer and tighten down the wing nut to hold our spare in place. That will complete today's look at the Rackem Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers, part number RA-16. .

Rack'Em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers - RA-16

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (51 Customer Reviews)


by:

Does exactly what you'd expect. Ordered 2, 1 for trailer spare and 1 for UTV spare. Took a little adjusting to get it to work correctly with the UTV spare but it's not the intended purpose so no complaints. The wingnut is a little clunky because of the angle of attack but it just has to hold it back from bouncing off, so again, no complaints.




by:

Very well constructed mounted it on 2x6 cut 45° 3inch wide. Also watched your video.




by:

Attached is a set of photos of my new “Rack-Em” interior tire hanger. I bought both the new spare tire and wheel from etrailer and it was SUPER easy on-line. I watched it track on my phone and both items arrived AHEAD of schedule. I installed the hangar and the tire in MINUTES!

Thanks Bros and Sis’s at etrailer, I’m as they say: “Miles Ahead with etrailer!”




by:

The product was simple to install and seems to be a great fit for my trailer.




by:

This spare tire rack is a great accessory for inside an enclosed cargo trailer. Remember to place this inside near the side walk-in door for easier access to remove when you have a flat. I also found that a 2x4 mounted on each side of the tire keeps the tire from wobbling and keeps the tire stable. I would recommend this to anyone to get the spare tire up and out of the way but easy and quick to get when you need it.




by:

This works great. My only complaint is that I wish the etrack went even higher (or the install bracket was shorter), I would like to get the tire as close to the ceiling of my trailer as possible.




by:

works great!




by:

WORKED GREAT BECAUSE ITS OUT OF THE WAY BUT FUNCTIONAL




by:

Followed the installation recommended in the etrailer video and it works fine. I would suggest adding some wood blocks on each side of the tire to limit wobble.

Works like a champ. Had no issues with it so far. Nice and sturdy.

Quick shipment, easy to install and good quality. Inside enclosed trailer spare tire storage.




by:

First the service - - prompt, very well packaged, arrived faster than I expected. Now the products - - tires and wheels look fine and installed correctly - -I will update on how they do on and off the highway. Spare tire rack was EZ to install in the enclosed trailer. Great experience with etrailer!




by:

Gosh it's great. Mounts perfect, and have zero trouble with it. Looks great in my trailer. I recommend it to all. Everybody that sees it, just love it, and the way I mounted it. 6 stars from me. I'll have to send a picture from my I phone.




by:

Very impressed with the quality of the RA 16 spare tire holder. Installed fairly easy requiring some addition wooden panels to shim up the walls to ensure a flat fit against the wall. Would have been nice to have included at least some 1 inch self tapping screws for installation. Would recommend the product to my friends.




by:

Installed the RA-16 Rack in my trailer and stowed the spare wheel assy. on the new rack. Excellent product, well made and easy to install using the helpful interior trailer photo found on the website. Thanks.




by:

East to mount and so nice to get the tire off the floor.




by:

Looks like it will be very useful for a spare wheel which now just lies on the floor of the trailer getting in the way.

Will install later this spring.




by:

Just as listed, very nice well made item. very fast shipping and very well packed. will order any other needs from etrailer.com

  • Minimum Installed Height for the RA-16 Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Cargo Trailers
    The minimum height of the # RA-16 Spare Tire Rack is 48 3/4 inches from the inside of the hook that installs from the runner in your trailer. The hook portion of the rack is welded to the vertical E-Track portion of the spare tire carrier, so if you needed to adjust the height you would need to remove a portion of the bottom of the spare tire carrier. There are attachment holes in the E-Track portion of the rack at 22-1/2, 30-1/2, 38-1/2 and 46-1/2 inches, for securing the rack to the trailer...

  • Will the # RA-16 Store Two Full Size Spares in a 1995 Wells Cargo 5 X 8 Enclosed Trailer
    Yes, If you use the top and bottom slots on the Spare Tire Carrier, item # RA-16, to hang your tires there will be enough room. You will also need the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track, item # RA-16HST, for the second wheel and tire. I figured your tire height and it should be 24.62 inches. If we round that up to 25 inches then you would need 50 total inches to hang the tires. From my calculations a 14 inch wheel and tire combination will also work with the Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier For Inside Of An Enclosed Trailer
    It sounds to me like you're wanting a spare tire carrier for inside of an enclosed trailer. If this is the case then we have the Rack'Em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers # RA-16. This rack will allow you to hang the spare tire on the wall of the trailer and additional holders, item # RA-16HST, can be added to carry another tire below the first or other items.

  • Slot Dimensions of the E-Track
    The E-Track has slots that have a length of 2.45-inches and a width of .58 inches. See attached diagram. I couldn't find any information on the ANCOR brand so you would need to compare what you have to those dimensions to know if the accessories like part # RA-16 would fit.

  • Recommendation of a Spare Tire Carrier for Inside a Cargo Trailer
    I would recommend the Rack Em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers, item # RA-16. This rack will allow you to hang the spare tire on the wall of the trailer and additional holders, item # RA-16HST, can be added to carry another tire below the first or other items. The Spare Tire Carrier - Horse Trailer, item # 413200, is designed as an external weld on application.

  • Will RackEm Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Work With 6-Lug Wheels
    I checked out our Expert answers and could not find a reference to limits on the wheel lugs the # RA-16HST would work with. As long as the pilot hole on your tire measures at least 2-15/16 inches diameter, your tire will fit over the end of the arm on the carrier. It uses only one of the wheel lug holes to hold the tire in place. I have attached a photo that shows this carrier being used with a wheel that has 6 lug holes you can check out. To be able to use this carrier you will need...

  • What Solutions are Available to Hang Spare Wheels and Tires for a Quad in an Enclosed Trailer
    The RackEm Spare Tire Rack, part RA-16, would be a great solution, provided the top clip can hang on the top edge of the wall. And provided the spare has a large enough pilot hole to fit over the hangers. If there is not a place to hang the track from, you can use standard E-Track, part # E19146 that does not use a top hook. You will also need extra spare carriers, part # RA-16HST to hang the wheel and tires from.

  • Will Spare Tire Rack # RA-16 Hold Two 225/75-15 Tires in a 24ft Enclosed Trailer
    Your 225/75-15 tires should be slightly over 28-9/32 inches in diameter, so combined you would be looking at about 56-19/32 inches in order to clear both tires. I spoke with my contact at Rack'Em, and the # RA-16 spare tire rack has an overall length of 49 inches, but the E-track portion of the rack is only 25-1/2 inches long. Even with one tire in the top slot and the other in the bottom slot, you would still be a few inches short of fitting both tires on the rack. If your trailer...

  • Spare Tire Mount For Inside a Cargo Trailer
    We have a couple different options available for a spare tire mount inside your cargo trailer. - Rack'Em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers # RA-16, this includes (1) spare tire holder but has the ability to hold additional tires with the # RA-16HST. - Erickson Spare Trailer Tire Bracket Kit # EM77316, this includes (1) spare tire mount that works with most 14"and 15" tires-and-wheel assemblies.

  • Will the E Track Spare Tire Carrier part # RA-16HST Fit Horizontal E-Track on Trailer Wall
    The E Track Spare Tire Carrier part # RA-16HST that you referenced would be what you need. It will attach to horizontal E-track like what you have. I attached a picture of it being used in horizontal E-track on a trailer wall like yours.

  • Could Rack Em Spare Tire Carrier # RA-16HST Carry 19.5 inch Wheel
    I spoke with Rack Em, and the # RA-16HST spare tire carrier will work with basically all wheels with a diameter of 12 inches and up. The wheel bore will need to be able to clear the end piece of the carrier, which measures 2-15/16 inches by 2 inches. There is not a specific weight capacity for this carrier, but their engineer let me know that it has been tested up to 300lbs.

  • Can E-Track Mounted Spare Tire Carrier be Used on the Outside of a Trailer
    The spare tire carrier for E-Tracks, # RA-16HST, would hold and secure a spare outside of a trailer but it would not be ideal. The issue is that there will be some movement of the tire since the E-Track connection is not tight. It is secure, but there would be some bouncing. What I recommend is a frame mount spare tire carrier, see link. You can bolt these to the frame nice and tight and secure the spare to the carrier tight as well so you will not get near the amount of movement that...

  • Best Placement of E-Track in Enclosed Trailer for Holding Spare Tire Rack
    A single spare tire mounted in your trailer will not have too much effect on tongue weight but if your application means installing multiple E-Track spare tire holders # RA-16HST then you will want to try to distribute the load evenly if possible. For reference I have linked our main page for E-Track supplies. If the choice is between increasing your tongue weight or placing the weight in the rear of the trailer, behind the rear axle, then I would go for installing them up front. When...

  • Is Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Hard to Fit to Trailer Wheels
    The Rack'em Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Item # RA-16HST is not known for being hard to fit to trailer wheels. We did have one customer come back and say it didn't work for them but they didn't give us any size details of their wheel/tire so it's hard to say. We've had a far larger majority of people report back that this fit well with their wheels. We have several examples of it easily fitting standard trailer wheels as well.

  • Best Method of Attaching E-Track
    You can mount the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control, # EM59150, using wood screws if the mounting surface is wood. If it is sheet metal, I would use sheet metal screws. Basically, match the screw with the material you are mounting to. There is no recommended way of installing the E-Track as installation is the responsibility of each individual installer. The more points you can contact the trailer frame, the more secure the spare tire will be. You might also want to consider using a backing...

  • Is the Top Part of Rackem Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers Available By Itself

    Since we don't have any frame mount spare tire carriers that can mount to a 6 inch tall trailer frame, we will need to consider other possible mounting options for a spare tire carrier.

A similar option is the use a section of Vertical E-Track # E19146 with the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track # RA-16HST. Either of these options will mount to the wall of the enclosed...

  • Can the CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier Be Mounted to a Wall
    The CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier part # CE27310G could certainly be mounted to a wall if the proper supports and hardware were used to support its weight. That said, a better option actually designed to be mounted to a wall is the Rack'em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers part # RA-16. Please note, if installing on exterior wall on aluminum trailer steps will need to be taken to prevent galvanic corrosion.

  • Can Rack'em E-Track Spare Tire Mount be Used on the Exterior of a Trailer
    Technically you could mount E-track on the exterior of your trailer and use spare tire carrier # RA-16HST. However, it is really best used on the interior of the trailer since the carrier is not a permanent attachment. If there isn't any free space on the frame to mount a carrier such as # FHDSTC0101 then I recommend welding on carrier # 413200 which is normally seen on gooseneck trailers.

  • Erickson Vertical E-Track E19146
    I have a solution for you, but the Erickson Vertical E-Track # E19146 only comes in sections 4 feet long. There are no vertical E-tracks that are shorter. However, the E-tracks can be cut to fit the length needed for your trailer. The # E19146 with the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track # RA-16HST will work well for your trailer. Since the E-track will be a smaller section, you will want to ensure that it is secured to either the trailer frame or with backing plates, like # e96RR,...
