All the spare tire covers I've found so far have an elastic hem on the back side, and they're a bear to remove/install. Does anyone make a decent quality cover that uses a drawstring? Is there some reason that the elastic hem is better?

According to the interweb, my tires are 29.3" in overall diameter, so one that fits 30" tires is the goal.

Probably cheaper to make with elastic hems.
I don't know much about them as I don't use them. The one time I did it was nothing but a bugs/critters and dirt trap.
If you're not fussy about appearance, and just want to hide/protect the tire from the elements, you could try a big green trash bag with a drawstring.

Had many over the years on different RV's, only one we've owned has had an excellent fit. Our Majestic, after 10 years is still looking good.

But the last two tire covers on other RV's...

I put in grommets (1/2 inch I think) and used "bungee rope" to get good fit. Think I got supplies at big box store under $20.00 And used a bit of old inter-tube for reinforcing material that cover was made of; about a 4x4 square

I have one from Ft. Wilderness that has a bungee sewn in instead of elastic, and a little hook and loop at the bottom to secure it. Pretty easy on/off.
