Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Looking for one that can hold a 15 inch tire (about 28 inches) One with a flat face would be ideal. If you only have the face, even better as I already found a ring.

Just about all of the conversion vans (GM, Ford & Dodge ) built back in the 80s and 90s used this type of spare tire cover, and most had 15" tires. The junk yards should be full of them if they haven't already been sent to the crusher.

hey snoopy, the rav 4 covers aren't entirely flat... they have an indented swoosh on several years models... just fyi if you go that route.

personally I like the look of the Isuzu trooper tire cover, but they are just too big for a bus wheel/tire. However if you wanted to make it work you could always find a junk tire of the trooper size and sawzall out the sidewall and slip it over your spare before putting the cover on.
