Question Spare Tire Cover ...Exact Size Please?

What is the size of the spare tire cover? (for the 5.0TA)

They seem to come in many sizes. https://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-cov...-co-Black.aspx

I have a dear friend who is an artist and now has cancer.

I hope to purchase a blank black cover and pay him to paint it.

Thank you.

You may want to ask ETI about a tire cover. When I ordered my trailer (and being a non-Canadian), I asked for a plain black cover. They supplied it at no additional charge or discount. Their policy may have changed since then but it's worth a try.

Tire covers

The regular Escape cover is $22 in the showroom. I bought an extra one in August when I was there and it fits the Goodyear Endurace 205 15s or the old Marathons . perfectly. I pull ours off after running rain or when it gets wet and reverse it and dry it. Otherwise it gets funky where it is split at the bottom. I like the Maple leaf and these days, Canada looks pretty good.

When we first started travelling internationally we were amazed at how many Canadians we saw. I mean Canadian lapel pins, Canadian flag patches on back packs etc. Only after awhile we started to find out that the majority of those displaying a Canadian flag weren't Canadian.

For shame!

If you like French fries, cheese curds and gravy, it is an ultimate combo. Only 5am here and now I want poutine. The stuff in that video sure did look good. Some place do screw it up and make crappy stuff.

I still think it is an acquired taste. We have tried it several times on trips to the north and do not see the attraction.

Kind of like durians . Why anybody could think that a fruit that smells like a combination of boiled onions, stinky feet and something your dog would love to roll in is delicious is beyond me.

I'd rather eat the tire cover

Hi: Honair... ETI supplied the decals and I had our local Auto Trim Design and Sign apply them. Steve put them on in my garage. He also applied a new set of front graphics after I messed them up trying to remove bugs. Alf

Very nice. We're getting a new TV and it will probably be white. The opportunity to match the graphics is very appealing.

My 19' has ST205/75R15's - apparently the same size as the 5.0TA. I found the Elements Spare Tire Cover from Camping World to be a very good fit, SKU 84970. It's available in white, grey, and black, and is on sale right now for 13 bucks. Although the single review on Camping World's web site complains that the material is on the thin side, I think it should hold up well enough. My white one is a nice snug fit, and has spent 900 miles on the freeway so far and hasn't gone anywhere, although I may have to replace it once in a while since the white will show stains. The white starts out being stark white in contrast to the trailer's more ivory white, but the cover has faded to match the trailer quite well. I went with the white since I've always thought that the original big black blob spare tire cover visually chopped up the rear of the trailer - looks better all white, more of a piece that way IMHO.

We specifically requested the maple leaf cover. Glad we have it.
