Missing spare tire cover panel

On a recent trip the spare tire cover panel from my 1984 310 Classic diesel MH went missing.
Anyone know where I can get another?

that is one of the most sought after items, and not easy to locate unless you are really lucky with a salvage dealer. You might try that Colaw's Salvage, get on the list for one if one comes in.

Welcome to the club. I had painted my cover and during the process removed the turbo diesel emblem, carefully polished it so it sparkled. I then put it back using the exact same rivet hole I had drilled out of the plastic. Needless to say someone somewhere has a shiney turbo diesel emblem from my spare tire cover. Now the cover itself I keep locked with a bike chain to the chassis frame.

I was at the Airstream Plant in Jackson City last week and found a decal which says: Turbo Diesel. Granted it will not look as nice as the aluminum script which I lost but it will be a suitable replacement on the spare tire cover.
The part # is: 385880.
