Front mounted spare tire & cover

There is currently (6/6/06) a '63 Overlander on ebay that has a spare tire mounted behind the propane tanks. What interests me is the alumunum(?) tire cover. Do any of you know where such a tire cover is available? I think the best place for the spare on my '66 Tradewind would be in that same spot. The cover sure gives it a nice finish.
Thanks, Neil.

I think the aluminum wheel cover were an option on the '63 trailers. Herb Spies has one on the rear of his '63 GlobeTrotter too.

We have a similar spare tire mount on our '64, just not the wheel cover. Here's some diagrams & pictures I posted some time ago showing how if works.
