Where to find wheel cover?
 
We bounced through a spectacularly rough construction patch in Ohio last month and lost one of the front wheel covers on our 2017 Greyhawk 29MV. I tried to find a replacement on ebay but it kept bringing up 19" covers and replacement wheels, neither of which satisfied my search criteria. Other than going to a dealer, can someone point me to a place that might have such an item? Are RV salvage yards a viable option?

Thanks,
Jim.

Happy 4th! Get used to it this is a common occurrence. I have tried different brands, but just the way they are. Google “Wheel simulators” May need to add 16” to the search.

The originals were probably Dicor Fastliners. Dicor no longer makes or supports that product. You may be able to find replacements at a salvage yard or just through a Google search, as was suggested. I haven't had any trouble with mine coming off (knock on wood), but others have suggested using zip ties through a couple of the simulator and wheel cutouts to make sure they stay on.

I did include 16" but looked for hub caps. I'll try your suggestions. Thanks for the heads up.

Same thing happened to the original wheel cover on the front of my 29MV. Hit a huge pothole in the middle of the freeway in Ohio, lost the wheel cover and the TPMS at the same time. The departing wheel cover broke the sensor.

Found a nice replacement at rvwheel.com for $138. Didn't replace with the same kind but replaced with the kind that have two nuts that use the the spare threads from the wheel studs. These won't come off unless the nuts come loose somehow.

Just reread your post and noticed that you lost your wheel cover in the same state. Maybe they were patching the hole that I hit five years ago. :p

Ha, we've travelled across Ohio twice in the last two years and can say they have the roughest pavement we've travelled over. Including they roads not under repair.

They don't sell the wheel cover you mentioned individually any longer, only as a set of 4 for $219. I'll pass. I ordered a snap on version.

Thanks for the pointer,
Safe travels.

Jim.

Amazon is your friend! Put in RV wheel covers into the search box and take your pick!
Center cap and beauty ring look terrific! YMMV😹
