Looking for a 1984 310 spare tire cover

So I bought a 1984 310 on Thursday (5/14), from a gentlemen up in North Dakota. I drove it 10 hours down to my place in Nebraska, and somewhere on the 200 miles stretch from Jamestown ND to Isabel SD we hit some rough road and the spare tire cover at the rear fell off somewhere during the journey.

I'm looking for a replacement and hoping someone here has a line on a part, or any ideas for replacing it even if it's not OEM.

Good luck on your hunt for a NLA spare tire cover. We lost our cover on I29 in Nebraska or Missouri in 2019. You might get lucky and find one!

I gave up trying to find a replacement, so I made one out of aluminum and hinged it at the top edge, used shocks and push release system on both sides. If it falls of now, you will just about have to rip the complete back off the coach.

I have a mould for the cover. I would need to check, by 95% sure it is for a 310. Only issue is that I am in the UK. Maybe you could get a mould out there or possibly get something made here and shipped.

Sorry Bo, I don't have the 310 anymore, and no longer work at the shop that helped in the fabrication of the cover!
Our 350LE has a trunk, and the spare is under the rear of the coach.

As far as I know, all the spare tire covers are the same throughout the years.

Can a fabric/vinyl one be purchased through Camping World? That is what I have done for my trailer spare.
