Somewhere there is a thread on spare covers. I couldn't find it. I was going to wait to post this when our remodel is done (someday...) but, in light of the traveling cat discussion in Chat I had to post this now.

I made this. Bought a spare cover from Camping World, made a stencil and sprayed it with Rustoleum Vinyl paint (small detail using wife's nail polish).

Inspired by our cats and the adage that there is no such thing as an all black cat. Sorry about the lighting.

Now that's cute... Love those cats no matter which way they want to travel.

Here's our tire cover.. we didn't have our Jerry (cat) when we purchased our Casita so it's the birds for us.

Our 1978 UNIK's tire cover was deteriorated when we bought the Canadian built unit. So I bought a plain white cover, cut out a Canadian maple leaf from vinyl(just like the original), & glued and sewed the leaf on the tire cover. Here's how it turned out. It has held up well. Terry

Our Boler is named the USS NeverSail. We are completely redoing it with a nautical theme. Here is spare tire cover to complete the theme.

I've got a spare tire cover ordered, and I'm going to want to add something to it. Did everyone use the Rustoleum Vinyl paint like Tom???

Terry---how did you do yours with glue (type?) and sewing? Anything special to know about??

I got a brown cover and I'm wanting to put the name "Bean" on it and maybe a coffee cup.

Thanks for ideas!

Bought the cover,and painted it the same color as our truck/trailer,
then added the chrome Coca Cola for that extra flavor.
