Having an aversion to carrying anything heavier than my long handled shovel and UHF aerial on the roof racks and needing a spare tyre casing I have made a Masonite base (415mm dia) which fits onto the bottom of the tyre beading and is held in place with an internal brace and a top of 460 dia which just sits above the beading. So far we have managed to fit into the tyre the tent, tent pegs, 2 recovery straps, couple of fluro lights, tyre repair kit, small pump and ½ dozen shackles. Last time I put tinned food in it and it took two of us to lift it. We have noticed the more we travel the less we take.

Enzo - I don't think you can post diagrams on this site. Drop me your email and I'll send you one.

It is just a safety thing as my tyres are not a normally available size. It's the same as carrying straps - hope you never have to use them.

David, when I had this problem on Tuesday or Wednesday, after hitting the submit button I got a "Border manager" error page open. If I tried to clear that by hitting refresh or the browser back button, I'd eventually get back to ExplorOz. However, my post was being duplicated for every time I hit one of the above buttons. The only way to avoid it was to choose Home, or some other website from favourites and then start again. It hasn't happened to me since Wednesday but I notice Steve suffered multiple duplicates on postID: 5668Smile, you're on ExplorOz

Trevor, what a good Idea!
I have subscribed to the pack tight travel Light philosophy for some time now, while I do carry an extensive kit of recovery gear, and by nature of my work tools never leave the truck anyway. I stick to just the basics. The next few trips will be longer ones & carrying a spare casing will be necesarry, Do you put anything inside the casing to prevent rubbing the inner surface?

Young Jack - The tent and straps are soft. The pegs are in a bag and the shackles are in the soft stuff as well. It keep it full now to stop, try to stop, vibrations. When we did the Simpson I had some food in there along with some packets of milk. One packet ended up with a hole in it and we almost had an omlette!

Trev,
this is what I was wondering about, we did a trip back in the 80's with a bunch that packed a heap of tinned food, after bouncing around all the lables had fallen off or rubbed un readable, each night they has "surprise" tea! writing on the lid of the tin with a marking pen helps, so does wrapping the tin's. shame about the beer they lost when the alloy cans rubbed through."No officer we are not Drinking as we drive"

As you can see from my pic I carry a spare casing, tube and gater on the bonnet of the truck. It works well and is held on by straps which hook up to a galvanised frame which is bolted to the bonnet. I also carry a variety of stuff inside the casing. The only problem I have encountered so far is rain water dripping into the casing. Have to work on that one and have some ideas.

Lifting the bonnet something else !! But this system works for me and casing does not block my vision as I sit high in the old truck.Cheers, Willem

Willem have you tried puting a wheel cover overit before you strap it down that should keep the water out

Bruce,
Yes, I had that in mind as an option. Have to get down to the Big Smoke however to find such an item as those covers are not found out here on the edge of the outback.Cheers, Willem
