How to Choose The Right Caravan Cover
When finding the correct caravan cover for your needs, it’s easy to do! There are 2 main things to consider upon choosing your cover, down below can help you out.
The first thing you require when finding a caravan cover you will need, is to measure your camper, caravan or RV.
To correctly measure your camper, caravan or RV, you will need to;
- Measure the length of the trailer. This is important to be done correctly. Failure to do so, can cost you the warranty on the cover
- To correctly measure to find the suitable cover, you need to measure the external length of your trailer.
- TIP: This does not include the A-Frame or any accessories (gas bottles, bike racks, rear bumper, air con, solar etc.)
It is important to purchase the right suited cover as choosing the wrong one can not only damage your paint and cause moisture build up, but this can void your warranty and peace of mind.
Here is a helpful example on how to measure correctly;
The second process within choosing a cover, is deciding which one best suits your needs.
All our covers are backed with a minimum 18 month warranty for peace of mind.
We have many different types of caravan covers available for your required use.
For example; if you are purchasing a cover to have on a vehicle that is always in direct sunlight, it is best recommend to get a multi-layered and high UV rating cover to withstand the UV we have here in Australia (Camec, Adco & Prestige are the main examples)
TIP: Covers that are not fully UV protected for the Australian sun and is in constant sunlight, may start to perish/develop UV rot. In which, the warranty will come in handy.
However, if you are looking for a general purpose cover for storage in a shed/carport, you can steer in the direction of a single/double layered ply cover. (Outback Explorer would be a good example)
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are caravan covers worth it?
Caravan covers do a great job of protecting your pride and joy from the elements, they are worth it not only for the vehicle but your peace of mind.
They are renowned to protect your vehicle from rain, dirt, tree sap and UV fading.
Q. How do you correctly put the cover on?
The most effective way to put on your cover is simple & easy.
You will require a step ladder and a helper to help put the cover on the roofing.
Simply, lay the cover out open , fold in the sides to make a ‘sausage’ like shape. Then stand on the ladder and push the cover on the roof, having a helper to guide this on can be much easier too! When the ‘sausage’ is covering the whole length, stand on the ladder and unwrap one side (back then front). Then do the same to the other side.
When the cover is on, make sure the cover is centre and then tie/buckle it down.
TIP: You want the cover to be firm enough to limit excess fabric movement, but not over tight as this may cause the fabric to tear.
We do find the easiest way is to start with your cover rolled up and placed on top of your RV (a step ladder will be required for most caravans, pop tops and especially motor homes)
Simply, unroll your cover along the length of the roof. Then roll your front back and see panels last. Unroll your straps and buckles and connect to the opposite sides of your cover all round and secure firmly to prevent flapping of your cover.
Q. Are your caravan covers waterproof?
Most caravan covers are not waterproof. They do come with a form of water resistance, more so on the roof to protect your roof top accessories. This will help ensure the moisture levels are controlled and will inhibit mould, mildew and other forms of bacteria that could damage the vans exterior.
Q. Do caravan covers cause damage?
You would want to avoid tarp-like covers that are thin and flimsy. These cheap material covers can leave blotches and hazing on windows. However if you are using a premium cover with a soft lining, then you have nothing to worry about.
Caravan covers are designed to reduce, if not eliminate damage caused by dirt/dust
Q. Should you use a cover?
While they aren’t necessary, they are highly recommended. The covers are an affordable way of adding extra protection to your caravan.
They will protect your van from everyday things that we sometimes forget would cause damage (dirt and dust that would cause scratching and UV rays that can damage/fade your rubbers and plastics on your vehicle)
Q. What is the best cover to choose?
Our top rated caravan covers are, the Adco, Prestige and Camec covers. These are the more durable covers on the market. They are all backed with a 3 year warranty and triple layered to ensure protection.
Bottom line, we think caravan covers are well worth considering and you should spend as much as you can afford. If you’ve bought a brand new caravan, it makes sense to pay a reasonable amount on the cover to ensure your van stays in pristine condition.
