I will have a base 06 Rav4 soon.
Base has no option to add the moulded cover.
Anyone know where I can buy the OEM moulded cover?
I dont like the soft cover of Base.

What's the Canadian "base" cover look like?

All 2006 RAVs here in the US come with COLOR CODED covers (match the vehicle)... even the "base" model :D The only difference is the LIMITED model comes with a LOCKING cover, while all the others are the hybrid type - soft vinyl/elastic back and HARD exterior cover. Appears the COLOR on these new 2006 covers are MOLDED all the way though the plastic, not just a coat of paint 8)

Couldn't see base in person yet.
Booklet hide base's cover prob intentionally.
but tomorrow I will pick my base up and I must see how it looks like. If it looks plastic, then I dont need hard one to buy. I just dont like the black vinyl old one.

Damit!
I picked up my 06 Rav4 base silver colour 3 hours ago.
The spare tire cover is all BLACK soft printed "RAV4".
Just black. Not color matched to body color.
Dissapointed. but looks not tooo bad.

I went to the dealer's lot yesterday to take a look, and they had a Base model, with a soft cover. I personally didn't like it. The new RAV4 is sleeker and way more refined and the soft cover is just a black vinyl cover, like the one in the old models. Somehow it doesn't looks like it belongs to the car. It is more for off-roaders and I keep thinking on a Lexus RX300 with a soft cover, it looks kind of adhoc, last-minute solution. But then again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Molded

The molded cover looks better, for sure, but although I have it I am kind of concerned about it because if someone bumps the back of the vehicle, that molding could be what's going to be bumped instead of a tire encased in vinyl. And then I wonder what is going to happen to both that molding and the bumper...

Can the Base and Sport spare tire covers be locked in any way?
Or only the Limited?
