Default Goat rail paint

Ok, I give up. Someone told me the spray paint color of the cream color used on so many of our goat rails and I can't find it.

Is it antique white?
Cream?
Almond?
Navajo white?

Thanks Randy!

Also do you know if they make tire covers big enough for the 12R's?

Before you buy tire covers consider covering the wheel wells with vinyl. Tire covers are sort of a pain to install and take off. Some where along the line I saw covers that just closed the wheel wells and that seemed like a better way to me. Maybe some one else knows what I'm talking about.

Sunguard makes some. RV toy store. I don't use them but that approach seems like it would be easier (and cleaner)

I've got a set of wheel covers on the big Michelins on mine. I'll check next time I'm there and see if there's brand info on them. They are best put on before you dump the suspension as the clearances get a little tight.

What about windshield covers? Do you guys think it's worth it to cover the windshield from the outside with the sunguards windshield shades? Anyone have them? are the easy to use?
