Spare Tire Cover

Hi yet again,

Does anyone know what type of spare tire cover comes standard with the trailers from the factory?

I like the idea of the picture in the brochures of a tan or beige hard cover being available... instead of the dealer slapping on his ugly white vinyl cover hoping for the free advertising.

Thanks!

Tell him you want the hard plastic cover that came with the camper or you will write "Screwed By:" across his vinyl one.

ours came with the hard cover, I also told the dealer not to put any of his stickers on my trailer.

Ours came with the hard beige cover as well, might be part of the big options package?
And I pulled all of the stcikers off our camper, dealer's, the nitrogen tire one (we didn't refill when changed tires anyway), and all of the other stickers that would just look ugly in time. I must say that the camper sure looks a lot cleaner now!

I pulled off all my stickers too except for the FR ones. Looks much cleaner now.
My spare is covered by a thin white vinly cover that is looking fairly ragged after only one season. I am going to replace it with something better this year.

FYI Caution, just be careful if you get a plastic spare tire cover. If you look at the support rib of the cover at the lower right hand side you can see a crack, this was caused from tighting the wing nut too tight.

When the plastic covers are new they are durable and will flex, but as time go's on and the plastic is expose to sun light the plastic gets brittle and will crack. My spare tire cover crack when it was 3 years old.
