Baby Moons

Does anyone know where I can order 13" Chrome Baby Moons for my 13' Scamp? I've tried local, and came up with nothing.

Look like they have them but dimensions are vague.

I couldn't find any that would match my wheels so I went with full size Moons on my Hunter C-II. Available from several sources on eBay. Most are sold in sets of four, but ask if they will break a set for 1/2 price, many will. Here's a link:

I could not find "baby moons" that would fit correctly so I went with "full moons". 13" on the Compact Jr and 14" on the Bigfoot. Hubcapmike calls them "Smoothies".

Mary Ann,
If I can tell correctly from your pictures, I don't believe that your rims will take hubcaps. Others can correct me if I'm wrong.

If it's the standard spoke trailer wheel won't fit.

You need wheels with "nubs." And then need to know if they're innies or outies to get a proper measurement.

Vintage Trailer Supply sells the Baby Moons you want, but you would have to get their wheels as well. Your spoke wheels will not take the baby moons. A nice chrome center cap would look good in your wheels tho.

Don't waste your money on hub cabs that are spring clip mounted.

ok then for one of you inventive types that own a machine shop...heres a line of product waiting for you .
an adaptor that would attach to your lug nuts for the baby moons maybe? or a set of baby moons made specificle for these rims. while maybe not a huge market,,, could be a nice little product for someone needing a little more income.

As an alternative, replacement "Clips" that held small hubcaps in place up until the 60's at least, are available and 3-5 of those could be bolted/riveted on the wheel to hold the correct size Baby Moons in place Hubcap kingdom in Tulsa (www.hubcapkingdom.com) might be a good source. That is where I got a 1/2 set of full moons.
