Arrow Motorhome Spare Tire Covers

Does anyone have any good sources for wheel covers like or similar to the one pictured below? I'd like to find one for my motorhome. Thanks in advance.

Tire Cover Blues

I didn't get any encouraging words from anyone out there. I know these were supplied by the factory, so perhaps I should address this with Airstream Inc. Any feedback is welcomed.

Here's a couple more.

I checked with Airstream Inc. and they informed me that the molds for the Airstream spare tire covers had been destroyed.

I have found some manufacturers that make customized tire covers, but I am still not totally satisfied. I received no commentary on this thread and I assume this is a tough item to find new or used.

Nonetheless, Thanks.

Wink Spare tire cover

LeeMo,
This may be of some value, years ago I made a spare tire cover for my brother. I bought a plain white vinyl cover from CW, cut a paper stencil of the shapes and words needed, taped them securely to the purchased cover and spray painted it with vinyl paint from an automotive supply house. Last time I looked it still looked good. May not be as good as the original but it will get you by until you find one off of a wreck.

Ernie and Jan

you may want to contact Colaw's RV Salvage in MO. They may have one. ALso do a search for RV Salvage in FL. I've heard of another good yard on I-10 down there. Good luck.

One more idea - if you want the "hard shell" cover try a web search on "Continental Spare Tire Cover". I found a number of hits for conversion vans tire covers

We had to replace our cover some time ago it was damaged, we found out as you did no longer available from A/S . We patched it together and used it as mold to fiberglass a new mold hey presto, only problem for you is to find someone with one to use as a mold as we are based in the England.
