Hitch Hauler Clearance Question.

I'm interested in a hitch hauler for my van, no problems with weight as it's a class v hitch on a 1 ton van but the spare tire is on the drivers side back door. Who makes a good carrier that will clear the spare?

I'm going through this same issue on my Jeep Wrangler. I want to haul my 300# klx. I'm looking at these, but I'm a bit concerned about 'wobble'. I see the anti wobble devices that are sold, but i'm not sure of how these work...

OR use a regular bike hauler with an extension on the receiver...

I like the looks of the first one seems handy with the rack. I don't think the wobble would be too bad, I bet you could just run a strap from each end of the hauler to your bumper or something.

Thanks for the link.
