Spare tire cover - Wildwood

Any ideas on where to purchase a replacement spare tire cover that is imprinted Wildwood or Forest River? I've only been able to find plain or novelty covers. Mine lost the elastic and blew away.

The elastic on my tire cover was stretching and I knew that at some point that it would blow off. I tied a short piece of rope behind the bumper tire carrier going both ways to the edge of the cover and put a tarp clip on the rope and clipped the edge of the cover.

not sure where you can get a Wildwood or Forest River cover. Call a local sDealer of this brand and see what they say.

Good suggestion, but a bit late for me. Hopefully I can find another.

I emailed Forest River about getting one of these for my 2013 Heritage Glen. I got a response requesting my VIN, which I sent, but it’s been crickets ever since. I may reach out to my local dealer.

They responded to me immediately, to tell me they do not sell directly to the public. They instructed me to contact a dealer and have them order it.

Do you want a tire 'cover' so bad that you 'HAVE' to buy it from a sDealer, who will put a up charge mark up on it?

"I" would not play this game and buy a generic cover somewhere else or have one custom made. I know nothing about these companies, but there are other options to go to.

Actually I bought one from a generous forum member. It would be nice to order directly from FR but I understand why this is not practical for them.

Sure, there are tons of generic tire covers out there, but a factory included cover with logo/brand on it just completes the look of a rig. Jayco does this for their Jay Flights and it looks great.
