Wheel Cover Material & Custom Sizes

I've seen the snap on wheel covers online and like the look.

Problem is, I want custom sizes made and am having difficulty finding the fabric material and someone to make them for me.

The samples of "fabric" mesh I am receiving from the few companies I've found online came in and feel plastic and don't look like it would hold up. Nor do they know the exact UV ratings on the material.

The covers I seen on a Tiffin we were beside at one resort looked nice and felt more like fabric than plastic. The owner mentioned his was made by a guy at another resort who simply measured his coach, came back after a few hours and installed them for him AND for around $200 he said. Stainless steel snaps and all.

Anyone have a contact for someone that can help me?

It could possibly have been the RV SunShade folks. They have several mobile installers around the country with some that travel around to different resorts and RV shows, etc. and can custom make those snap-on covers and sometimes can measure and install them the same day.

Here's their main website:

RV Sunshade Company

Here's one of their installers out of San Diego, for instance, Bob and Mary Jones:

RV SunShades Bob and Mary Jones

Here's a list of all their distributors/installers:

RV SunShade distributors

They also make the "invisible covers" but will have the snap-on type also.

Sorry, that link for Bob Jones was not to their home page. Try this one instead:

RV SunShades Bob and Mary Jones

The distributor in Texas, if you're there is: Todd & Renee Seely at 713-208-5569

If you're going to make your own, Sunbrella is the material you're looking for. It's what they make awnings and boat tops out of.

That is what i am giong to use. I had my main awning and window awnings replaced and asked the guy at Girard for a little extra fabric. He gave me a ton for free.
