Spare Tire Cover Replacement

The first good trip with out 325 "Rv-Voyager" the buckles gave-away and the tire cover sailed down the highway. Any suggestions where to find a replacement or an alternate solution?

That sucks.
Talk to Andy at Inland, and if they are available. If not, now there are 2 of you looking for one, I might take a mould off mine, while its still in primer, so i can make some.

Oh, darn ... we had the same problem, and drove nearly 100 miles back looking along the roadside before we found the (BROKEN) thing. However, with it in hand the fix was not difficult if you like working with fiberglass and resin (available at WalMart)

That cover is still available, but not too cheap.

I have the same problem with the 345 we're getting. Andy gave me a price for the one that fits ours. He's right - not too cheap - but... managable - and a "must have"!!! It's ugly without it!

For those of us who have not yet lost this cover: check the weatherstrip that the cover rides on. Ours had no weatherstrip when we got the coach, and the cover kind of rattled around loose and was just waiting to be lost. When I took it off I noticed grooves for weatherstrip where it mounts to the coach. Bought some standard square weatherstrip at a hardware store, stuck it on, and now the cover is nice and snug.
