A large tire cover on the rear just screams out to have something on it. Wev'e all seen some that catch our eye going down the road, some hard to remember, some hard to forget. I kind of "struck out" when doing ours, it's pretty bland.

So, how about it ! Show us your spare tire cover, please.

Pretty realistic, don't you think?

Harold you are a genius and skilled craftperson. (takes in both genders). Very attractive and would certainly catch my eye if I were following.

Harold,

I can appreciate the look, although I would caution against leaving the tire itself exposed. Sunlight is one of the primary causes of premature tire failure also known as "Sun-Rot". If you regularly rotate your tire onto the trailer axle you may not need to worry about that. Most of us probably have a like-new tire in the spare position and hope that we'll never need to use them. While I'm hoping to never need mine, I will probably put a cover on ours when we get done with the rebuild, if for no other reason than to extend the life of the tire.


I'm not knockin the woodwork tho, I think it looks great.

We finally replaced our 'Scamp' factory cover, which was in embarrassingly bad condition, and now we have the big white blank. Now we need to find a graphics place to add whatever we decide from the ideas we've been kicking around:

'Alpha & Omega' since this is the first & last RV we expect to own.

'NOT an Italian Shrimp' for those who love our "Scampi"

'Towed Hall' with a nod to another member here who has "Towed Haul" - love it!

'NO regrets' - which is EXACTLY how we feel about full-timin'

and, of course, there's always the good ol' Stars 'n Stripes ...

Wishing safe & happy holidays to all - L 'n D

I'll be replacing my spare tire this coming season, but here's a tail-gaters eye view of what our cover looks like. If you can't make the wordage out, it says: Old Farts Car Club and Day Care Center (matches the plaque on the right side of the trailer) LOL!!!
I am a member of this club (based in Seminole FLA.), it is a true to life club with dues payable yearly....

Hi: Every post I do has our tail covered... Most people take one look and ask "Why do you have Coors Light" on the back of your trailer??? Again!!!

I don't have a picture here - but the Escape has a really nice big red Canadian Maple Leaf - I love it.

I don't have a spare tire mounted on the back of my trailer.
In it's place, I have a large decal usually found on semi trailers:

My 13' Scamp is my little castle on wheels, hence its name, "Taj Mah Small". Folks on the road have had lots of chuckles over it (and my crazy sticker collection too)!

Aha, Chris - thanx for posting your "Taj Mah Small" - I KNEW I'd read that for a member's trailer and couldn't remember whose. It's great! LdB
