Wheel Cover

Looking to buy wheel covers for my motorhome. Any recommendations? Do I just measure the height of the tire? Also the same for a cover for the whole unit. Are the covers specific to models or just lengths?

You just need to know the diameter of the wheel.
Happy hunting!

What Bob said. I picked these up at Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T36B9CK/

Work good for me and heavy enough I never use the back strap.

I use Covercraft snap ring tire covers

They are easier to use than the elastic ones and stay on better in the wind. The web site lists them by tire size. White or black.

I just got these and really like them. They appear to be made very well. Time will tell on durability. They do come with a bungee but are heavy enough to stay on without unless some very high wind. Reading the reviews many stated they wished they had ordered the next size up which is what I did fit perfect. Click image for larger version

The ones above lasted about four years now. Two good, one ugly, one even uglier. They're cracked to hell but still held together by the flocked lining. This is in direct sun, -8 to 111įf

The one in the picture is off of a trailer not the 24.1 so it doesn't fit well for the picture.
I found it blowing in the yard yesterday and just pulled it out of the trash for this picture.

Big +1 for Covercraft, I challenge anyone to get one of their "other" brand on while I put ALL 4 of ours on
It's been years since I squatted, crawled under etc to put the covers on

Here's a link, cost more BUT oh so worth it.

I had the Adco Tyvek cover for my previous unit (camper) and it came with 4 wheel covers.
Both the cover for the camper and the covers for the tires where still like new after 3 years when I recently sold the unit.
It is not cheap but that is what I'll buy for my MH.

I'd cover a spare if I had one.

I bring my covers with me. If the site doesn't have shade I put the on

Iíd cover the spare if it was on the back in the sunshine. But you canít use the ďregularĒ covers as theyíd not stay on. You can find big spare covers on Jeep sites. I put my wheel covers on if Iíll not be using the coach for a week or more.

19.5 inch rims use "wheel simulators" whereas 16 inch rims use "wheel covers". Wheel simulator fit over the wheel studs and are held on by nuts. Wheel covers have metal friction grippers than hold it onto the wheel rim. Both types are sold by most of the RV parts houses.

First measure the diameter of the tires.
Minards has multiple sizes at a reasonable price. Color choices are white and black. I chose white since black absorbs heat and heat is an enemy of the tires over time.

Tire Covers

I also recommend the Covercraft Snap Ring Tire Covers in white. Measure the diameter of the tire to order correct size. They stay on during high winds yet are easy to install and remove. I hated trying to reach behind to attach straps on my previous covers.
