Where can I buy sway ball covers?

I need to replace the plastic covers for the one inch sway control hitch balls. These are to keep the grease clean, and off our clothes. The existing ones have deteriorated through sunlight. I have tried all the usual suspects, including Google, Camping World, Eaz-lift, local Airstream dealer, RV stores. The story I'm told is that they are no longer manufactured.Any suggestions?? Thanks. Nick.

The Airstream store at the Florida rally had a bunch, for a couple of dollars each. They took some back with them, so you should be able to acquire them through Airstream parts dept. If they really don't make them anymore, you may want to stock up...

Nick, in this neck of the woods, you can find them at nearly any farm supply store that carries hitches and hitch parts.

Roger, thank you. I will look for a farm supply store tomorrow. They may be a little scarce in Baltimore! Nick.

Airstream store has the covers. They are not listed on the website www.airstream.com, but I e-mailed store@airstream.com and obtained the information. Thanks to Terry and Roger, from Nick.
