Trasharoo With No Spare Tire

I have a Trasharoo which I really enjoyed using while on OEM tires. Since moving to 35s, I have been running without a tailgate mounted spare, and wish I could still mount my Trasharoo. I have thrown one of the old tires back on for certain trips, but carrying around a useless spare just to mount a trash bag is a bit silly. I don't have a roof rack to use as a top mounting point, either. Anyone have a creative solution?

I want to use what I already have, not buy something new. Also I like keeping the smelly stuff OUTSIDE of my vehicle.

well that snappy response made me go look at what a trasharoo was.

you still have the mount for the spare tire. How hard could it be to come up with a mildly fabbed assy, that would attach to the spare tire mount and hold the top of the trash bag?

a piece of steel bent at bottom could give a base for it to sit on and a slot or bend on top to attaach top of bag. holes drilled for mounting to spare tire mount.

edited to add. cool looking item. I can see why you would want to continue to use it

oh got a good idea. I have a bike rack for the spare tire mount. can't remember the brand but it has a plate that goes behind the spare, from the plate a square tube comes thrugh center of rim. slide the rack onto the square tube. set something up like that but instead of a bike rack, a formed piece that will hold the trasharoo.
it is 1" square tubing and actually pretty stable with two bikes on it. Should be able to hold the weight of a not too overstuffed trash bag.

Here's an idea, why don't you get a 35" spare.

I understand it can be a contentious issue, but I do not see the need for one most of the time. I have plugs and CO2 with me at all times. If I am paranoid for a specific trip, I will throw it in the back.

Let's say I had a big awesome black and blue jeep with a big awesome spare on my custom trunk cover. I would still need a solution for hauling out questionable trash (ever get to a campsite where too much recreational activity occurred?) without putting it all in my jeep.
