Assuming that picture is on your cell phone, go to a local truck service center, show the picture to the parts dept. I'm sure they will know immediately what you need to replace the gasket between the hub cap(that's what it's called) and brake drum axle bearing housing.
Spartan used 2 different hub caps, a 6 bolt-hole and a 5 bolt-hole.The gasket is simply thin, flat gasket material.
I replaced both hub-caps (mine are clear plastic) and gaskets for $35 ea + tax from a local HDT parts store.

need entire assembly

Not on my phone and the base of the thing is cracked in many places and leaking bout a pint in 400 miles.. Want to buy the entire part and have the shop do it when I take the fridge back for the 4th time. The online supply houses I find have nothing that looks like mine. If I don't get the part ahead of time, the rig sits there for weeks waiting on parts..

My advice would be to take it to a heavy truck facility, they deal with those components on a regular basis, RV dealers are usually not great on chassis work. Get your fridge fixed(worked on) separately.

just got some advice from an old friend about a place in west phoenix who he takes the parts to and they do the work. would still prefer to have the parts in hand anyway in case I decide to do it myself and will continue to look for them.

I just went through the same thing over Thanksgiving. My OEM was a Stemco which is cast aluminum, with clear plastic sight glass. The replacement we found yesterday is a Scotseal TF Hub Cap, made by SKF. I was a little disappointed seeing the "plastic" at first but after reading the linked information, I think I might change all of them to the Scotseal. Yours look similar but different to the ones I just got. I was told to use silicon gasket sealer with the gasket. Otherwise they become brittle and leak.

Call Spartan 517-543-6400 with your VIN number and they can give you the make and model of your wheel hub. I just had both of mine replaced due to cracking as well.
