The only Scamp logo tire cover I've ever seen had their 800 number on it. I own a Scamp and am proud of it, but I think the phone number makes the trailer look like a rental. I suppose you could peel off the numbers, but personally I think a plain white one or maybe one with whatever the "theme" you're decorating with, would be

I got my 13" moons from Mooneyes in California via the web; www.mooneyesusa.com
Their item # MC0513 and they are packaged as a set of 4 but they will break and sell you 2, my cost was 62.11 including the tax and freight.

Small Tire Moon Hubs

Moonies for the Fiber Stream proved problematic in that I have 12 inch tires. This is the only supplier I've found. http://www.simpletractors.com/sponsors/ten.../tennies_ad.htm I haven't ordered mine yet.

That looks great. But I need the "Baby Moons" not full. I may try a VW scrap yard.
Thanks,

Normally I hate purely decorative items, but full Moon caps on my lawn tractor is just so cool I'm tempted. On second thought, my wife would not be happy... even at $15 each.

Dan, the Bearing Buddy website has an installation page with removal instructions.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The spare tire cover can be ordered directly from Justin at the Scamp factory...I think it is about $22.00 plus about $5.00 shipping. Check the Scamp web site they have a complete parts list and current cost of every item on the list.

A Bearing Buddy is a device to keep pressure on the grease in a trailer axle bearing set to keep out water, intended for boat trailers. It sticks in the end of the hub, where the cap should go. They are not recommended by axle manufacturers for any axle with brakes, and I wouldn't use them myself, but many people choose to put them in various types of trailers, to ensure continuous adequate lubrication of the bearings. Their web site is reasonably informative (although, of course, biased).

Dan mentioned removing them - which I personally think might be a good plan.

Drew,

I will definitely give Red Neck a call. The Fiber Stream has 12" wheels. So, moons in that size are pricey. The online catalog prices look better than any other I've seen.

I know this is an old thread but I am wanting to purchase these baby moons. JC Whitney has 2 kinds for sale. Which ones are the 304 stainless?

The Coast to Coast brand; Product Number: 13902G
http://www.jcwhitney.com/baby-moon-h.../p2021572.jcwx

or the

Mr Gasket brand; Product Number: 40238G
http://www.jcwhitney.com/baby-moon-h.../p2031512.jcwx

Just from the picture the Mr Gasket brand looks better but it may just be the photograph.

Let's see, from the coast of China to the coast of U.S.A. Mr. Gasket has been around for a long time. You also know you can buy chrome hubcaps at the truckstop, don't you?

Jean-L,
Where did you find your white rims? I think you switched to a 5-bolt wheel when you changed your axle? If so, I'm having a tough time finding white 5 bolt trailer wheels so I can add these baby moons as well. I didn't think it would be a tough task!

(thanks for finding this old thread, julie! I've been looking at this as well)

Thanks!
Luke
