Looking for nut on hubcaps

We are missing one of the giant nuts that hold on our hubcaps and have looked several places so far. Anyone have any suggestions? This is for a 1999 Dutchstar (diesel). I know we can buy the silver cover things at Camping World but they don't have the nuts.

Plenty of nuts here, looks like you may just need a cap for it.

Looks to my like you're missing the nut that holds the wheel liner on and the nut cover for that.
The wheel liners are made by Dicor btw, or at least that's what I was told by WheelMasters when I went there looking for some nut covers.

From the picture it looks like the OP has the wheel liners and not aluminum wheels. Newmar has used Accuride wheels for years rather than the more expensive Alcoa's.

Dicor, was the brand installed by Newmar on coaches of your /my vintage.
I was on there web site last year and didn't find it very helpful , but it may be worth a phone call.

One of our sponsors may have what you want.

Give these people a call maybe they have the nut and cover or just the cover.

While on this subject.. would anyone know where to buy the tool to remove these nuts? Ours has gone "soft". It's a thin metal socket on a T shaft that came with our MACA. I looked in a bunch of stores (and flea markets) for a 1-5/16" socket but could not find one. I supose I could get the original wrench from Newmar but it would eventually become useless over time.

You might consider one of the truck chrome shops. The Iowa 80 is one of the most popular in the country.

Most auto parts stores sell sockets. If you can't find one there go to Amazon.com. They show lots of them there. Just search for 1-5/16" socket.

Paul, you can get a 1 5/16" socket from Sears. I ordered mine a couple of months ago and got it in less than a week. I use mine on a Mountz MPZ 12 to 1 torque wrench with a 1" drive. It is available in several different drive sizes. Actually I ordered a 33MM socket which is my lug nut size but a 1 5/16" socket works also. It's available with a number of smaller or larger socket drive sizes. You can also call Sears Customer Service @ 1-800-349-4358. The price was $19.31 plus $10.20 shipping and $1.92 tax.

If you order a 1-5/16 make sure it is a six point. 12 point will round them off. Just go to Autozone and get a 33 MM which is the actual size.

I'm sorry if my picture was confusing, (my husband said it was ) but we actually do need the nut. One is missing, and there are only two that holds the hub cap on so now it is being held on by just one. Finding the cover is the easy part.
We tried Freightliner and our mechanic tried a couple of local places but no one has it or has any idea where to get it.
Thanks!

Because the wheel covers are Dicor made, and installed by Newmar, Freightliner would not have them in their parts listings.
The part is not shown on the Dicor web site , so I think phoning them would be your best bet , to see if the part is still available. If no luck there you may end up looking a RV salvage yards.
Note: This retainer would be a different size ; being on a Freightliner chassis; than those used on Workhorse and possibly Spartan.
May be an idea to remove the cover till you can find the replacement; if your driving the coach.
P.S. Photo didn't confuse anyone that had ever removed those covers.
