Rick replied to spicejax's discussion Put a Hitch on your smart to pull a small trailer in the group smart RV Owners

Spare tire holder

Posted on March 3, 2012 at 5:43pm 1 Comment

Hi.  I'm new to  Smart USA Insider. One of the first pics I saw was a number of different Smarts with a spare tire holder that seemed like the one's used on small SUV's. Where are these available? Google searches didn't turn up anything. Help.
