Wheel Covers for DP

Where is the best place to purchase wheel covers to place on wheels while camping? I also have a tag axle that I would like to cover while parked.

I found mine on Amazon made by Classic Accessories. Take time to read the reviews as you'll learn the pros and cons of each product. Also, be sure to know the size of your tires in diameter and width. Seems like most recommendations are to buy one size bigger if you're unsure.

I really like the snap ring tire covers. They come in either black or white. Super easy to use, and no crawling around to put them on/take them off. Best price by far that I found was below. (My Revolution wears the "Giant" size).

The SnapRing looks great. I have the old Camco tire covers that had a elastic cord that hooked around the inside bottom of the tire. What a pain.

I hear ya! I researched these a few years ago when we had our gasser, and they worked so well, also got them for the new diesel.

I agree the snap rings look easy, but I can save you some grief with the elastic ones.

Don't try and put the elastic under the bottom. I have the bungie cords installed permanently. What you do is get the cover right side up and right side out, and before you do anything else you hook the elastic over the top of the tire and wheel and pull the two bottom corners down most of the way so the elastic is pulled down onto the top of the wheel hub (for clarity it is behind the wheel). Then pull the rest of the cover down over tire from the top, and snug it down.

The elastic pulls the bottoms in and up slightly, but since the they are on the curve of the tire turning in to the center they don't ride up. Takes me about 5 minutes to do all 6 (tags included).

One advantage I can see over the snap rings I with the ones I have I can roll them up pretty small for storage.

Mine are also the cheap CW black ones, but mine were two to a box, so 3 boxes were about $90 five years ago.

The PO of Mona had the screens made for the front windows, side windows, and the wheel well openings, and they snap on, work very well! Just another option! Rail!

For those who struggle with the cheap Camco covers, I took a couple of pictures yesterday when I put my coach away. It took me about 5 minutes to put all 6 on.

First, the cord is permanently attached to the cover :

Next you hold the cover in the orientation you intend to install it and loop the cord over the top and down behind the wheel (I don't know why, but the upload feature flips this picture - sorry but you have to look at it upside down):

Then you pull the top of the cover over the top of the tire and get it in position:

Last you snug the cover down and pull the bottom two corners of the cover where the cord attaches to the ground.

I got ours at WalMart in packages of 2 each for a little past $20.00/package. It was easy and convenient.

They just slip over the top of the tire and seem to stay in place all right. I think they had two sizes and I got the larger size.

I purchased our wheel/tire covers from Amazon last year and they seem to be holding up well.


I am glad I won't have to use these any longer by next year as the coach will have a nice new garage to park inside of after her new paint job.

Mike.

I just use the Camco covers from Amazon. I thread the bungee cord through one of the tire cover holes and just toss it behind the wheel. Just to hard to try to route it behind the tire/wheel assembly. Just make sure to pull the cover down tight over the tire and it seems to stay put. I've worn out several sets from the UV here and rarely lost one from the wind.

Ours is parked out on the prairie, wind is an issue. Easy to flip it over the top of the wheel. As I said, 5 minutes to put on 6.
