I'm in the same boat, and I've just about resigned myself to buying a new rim from e-trailer. It seems that everyone around here (Fort Worth/Dallas area) just stocks the white spoke rims and pricey alloy stuff.

e-trailer has this rim for $49.95 plus shipping... if you "need" over $150 of stuff from them they have free shipping, but to north Texas it's another $15 to deliver that rim. I haven't quite given up, but I want to have a spare by the end of the month so unless someone has other suggestions I may just give in and buy new. It looks like this rim should accept the hubcaps from my Argosy, but in the worst case I could live without that for the spare.

Southwest axle sells 'em....in Dallas.
My local (Denton) trailer guy just orders 'em from a catalog and has it delivered the next day. Not hard to get...at all.

I bought two Airstream wheels off him. He is in Beaufort, SC.

Perhaps the 4 or 5 places I've called in/near Fort Worth are disinterested because I'm just buying 1? In general I like to do business close to home where possible, but beyond a certain level of hassle I'll buy online. As it would cost me more than the shipping to drive to Denton and back (or to Dallas and back to get it from Southwest) I'm still leaning toward e-trailer for mine.
