Question Hub/Lugnut covers?

Anyone know where I can get those white platic caps that cover the hub and lugnuts? Camping World sells chrome, but I'm looking for white. Thanks!

I bought our previous trailer from an RV show at the
Kentucky state fairgrounds. I found an extra (empty) but
brand new LP tank in the closet along with a bag
of those white plastic lug nut covers.
I'm guessing the dealer brought them but forgot to install
them.
So...... Try your nearest dealer parts/accessory counter.

As far as covering the hubs, my trailer did not come with
any means to grease the bearings except dis-assembly
so I bought Bearing Buddy grease caps.
Cost about $18 per axle but are stainless steel, nice and
shiny and will likely outlast the rest of my trailer!
YMMV.

The white lug nut covers that we got with our Surveyor were a brighter white than the wheel.....they just didn't look good. They came off right away......my 1st mod. I am thinking about getting chrome lug nuts, as well as chrome wheel rings. The problem with the lug nut covers, is that you have to remove them to re-torque the lug nuts occasionally.

Thanks for the replies! I'm trying to make the wheels look better. Maybe I'll look into the individual chrome lug nut covers or just go with the one piece chrome covers at Camping World. The problem is the current lug nuts are rusty and the hubs are black and greasy looking. You think these would look good on a white wheel?

I think if you went with a chrome hub you'd also want a chrome trim ring.
