I would like to find a cute spare tire cover. I don't care fo the typical "casita 1-800" tire covers and I was just looking at glass the other day and ran across this cute trailer with a really cute tire cover. But where would l find one like this or at least something that isn't an advertisment for beer, manufactures,etc? Thanks for the suggestions! Robin

Looks like a vinyl tablecloth cover. cut to fit, sew elastic around it and you have a tire cover. Many patterns to choose from.

Great Idea Richard, but I doudt its a table cloth. At least I have never bought a vinyl table cloth that would hold up to the wear and tear of driving down the road at what ever speed I am going................................. But you gave me a idea! I know they sell heavy duty vinyl at the fabric store. But I am pretty much lazy, so if I can buy it, it would be much easier than actually sewing it.

We found just a plain white one at an RV Dealership in Minot, ND a couple of years ago. About $14.

I have a girlfriend who makes tire covers out of table clothes all the time. She has seasonal ones, xmas, thanksgiving, halloween.....

She says they last surprisingly well.

Hi: Robin G...I took my plain white one to a local sign shop and between the sign writer and I, and $60.00, I came out with this.

We bought a plain white one & searched online for graphics, then went to a local place that does graphics, decals, etc. They added the lighthouse decal we chose & the wording we wanted. We chose black & white because it cost less. Like Alf's, it was around $60.

I also took mine to the local sign shop ( same one who laid out the graphics on the El Camino) and told Terrie to cover the 1-800 number of Scamp (and Carrie likes frogs-long story on that.....) then added our names (my last name and Carrie's), modified Scamp, and walked out $40 lighter. It's done in vinyl sign stuff and has lasted quite well. Larry

Robin,

Check the thread on Tire covers in Modifications and Alterations. We bought a plain white one from Camper World ($11.00) and painted it ourselves.

Use your imagination and have fun -

I bought mine a couple of years ago on EBAY. It is a discontinued item, new old stock. It has a scene with a couple of bears on it.

Plain white ones are readily available in RV parts stores.
