Selecting a Caravan Cover
The evolution of caravan covers have come a long way since their inception. Originally, covers were made from heavy and abrasive materials that would often result in damage to the vehicles that they were meant to be protecting. Since the mid-90’s however, we have seen the introduction of new, light, high quality and breathable fabrics. These fabrics allow the new covers to breathe by allowing the moisture to escape thus reducing mould and mildew which can damage the externals of your caravan including paint.
When it comes to Camec and Adco branded caravan covers, as technologies are improving, so too has the design of these caravan covers, to continuously provide you with the best protection for you caravan or RV.
Use the following sections to guide you to select the best caravan cover for you.
Do I Need a Caravan Cover?
Some people may argue the necessity of a caravan cover. It is true that like any accessory, it is not for everyone, but if your camper, pop-top, caravan or motorhome sees periods of non-use, having a caravan cover to protect your investment is well worth the outlay when compared to the cost of some RV repairs and even the replacement of your RV in extreme cases. So how exactly do caravan covers protect your van? Look for a cover that has a water resistant roof panel to reduce water intrusions (in the event that your van has any leaks). A caravan cover will help protect both the external surfaces as well as internal furnishing from sun damage including your curtains and couch fabrics, along with any belongings you may keep in the van. A new generation caravan cover should have breathable sides that reduce the build up of mould and mildew that eliminate the woes of older style covers which would trap moisture and condensation leading to damaged paint and external surfaces.
Types of Covers
Picking the Right Size
You are going to want your caravan cover to fit nice and snug although it is always better to choose the next size up if your length falls in between the provided sizes. You can then use the cinching straps to adjust the fit of the cover on your RV.
