I considered an Aluminess rear bumper and several hitch swingout options like Hitchgate, but each option took the extended departure angle from bad to worse. Furthermore, I decided to order my next Transit without a hitch, for I learned on my last extended the hitch makes the departure angle worse. I won't hang the spare from the rear doors, put it on the front or roof. That pretty much leaves inside the van as the only option. Does anyone carry their spare inside the van? Has anyone come up with a better solution?
