Spare tire

I recently removed my spare tire to make room for some thing else and I am not at my permanent location to put it in a new home. It looks like there’s enough clearance to put it in the truck bed while I tow but I don’t want to do something stupid. I took a couple of pictures and I would love to hear thoughts from people smarter than me.

Thanks for any advice or stories!

Hitch the fifth wheel first, then slide the tire in. You'll have enough clearance then.

Why not get a under trailer carrier for the spare.
