This step by step guide will answer all the FAQ's helping you to choose the right cover for your needs
Determine your type of RV - there are 4 main types that we cater for:
1) Camper Trailer
2) Poptop Caravan
3) Full height caravan
Determine the length of your RV type and size it accordingly with the cover types available. To do this you should measure the external length of the general body only. The general body does not include your A-frame or accessories like air conditioners, antennas, solar panels, gas bottles, bike racks, spare tyres or rear bumpers.
TIP - The external length often differs from the internal floor plan length quoted by the manufacturer due to storage compartments accessible from the outside only.
Determine the quality of the cover needed for your application. UV rated covers with a minimum 3 year warranty are recommeded for Australian conditions when being stored in the open elements. Consider a basic cover if you intend to store under a carport or in a shed and just want to keep the dust off.
TIP - Covers that are not fully UV protected for Australian conditions and that are stored out in the open can start to perish in as little as 12 months.
Fitting your cover. There are a few different methods however, we 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, poptops and motorhomes. Simply unroll your cover along the length of your roof and then roll down your front back and side panels last. Unroll your your straps and buckles and connect to the opposites sides of your cover all round and secure firmly to prevent flapping of your cover.
Removing your cover. Simply unclip all your straps and buckles and roll the front, back and side panels up onto the roof (you may need a step ladder for this), and then roll the whole cover up lengthways along your roof. Fold your rolled up cover in half and store.

What size cover do I need for my Caravan, Camper trailer, Pop top or Motorhome?
The best fitting cover is the cover that is filled out by the caravan body shape only. Try not to stretch your cover over gas bottles, tool boxes or spare wheels on the back as this will cause a hollow pocket above these items which may lead to excess flapping and rubbing causing premature failure within the caravan material.
Measuring your caravan at the longest points of the body ONLY will allow you to match this measurement to the manufacturers recommended cover for that length and type of caravan, pop top or camper trailer. Try not to

Which brand Caravan Cover is best for my caravan or motorhome?
We generally find that the caravan covers offering the longest warranty are a good place to start. Australia's harsh climate can dramatically reduce the life expectancy when in full open weather, so manufacturers that are offering 3 years warranty at a minimum, are basically telling you that these covers are made for Australian conditions and wont disintegrate from UV damage after a few months.
How do I install a cover for my Caravan, Camper trailer, Pop top or Motorhome?
The easiest way to install any of these covers is to roll them up in such a fashion that it can be placed on top of your RV at the rear, and rolled out from rear to front. You can then roll down the sides and end walls and secure/adjust accordingly. To take the cover off, you can roll the side and end walls up onto the roof, and roll the cover back up like a sausage from front to rear. You will need a ladder for larger RV's and it is always easier if a second person is there to help you - although it is not too much dramas to do by yourself.
My previous cover has not lasted even 12 months - Will these be the same?
No, these covers are guaranteed to last a minimum 3 years, although with the right fitting cover that has been installed correctly, we are finding that the ADCO cover and Camec Caravan covers are lasting a lot longer than this. There is definately a distinct quality difference with our covers and more importantly our caravan covers are UV protected for Australia's conditions.
Do caravan covers scratch or damage the exterior of caravans?
The short answer is NO, although without proper care of your caravans exterior, marks and scratches can result due to a caravan cover being in contact no matter how soft the internal layer is. With a fibreglass caravan, if the outer gel coat has worn away to the extent where it looks powdery, off colour marks can result by simply being in contact with a cover. This is not the covers problem, you need to treat and buff the exterior of your caravan before it gets any worse. A well looked after exterior will have no problem with our softly lined covers. Aluminium cladded caravans have no problem with caravan covers, just make sure there are no sharp edges that may damage your cover - cover or pad them if you have to.
Caravan windows will not be scratched by our covers if they are kept clean. It is the dirt that gets trapped between the cover and the window that causes scratches and abrasions. Perspex windows unfortunately create static which can attract dirt and dust particles which can make it hard to keep clean. We reccommend using an anti-static compound like VuPlex on your perspex or acrylic windows to solve this problem.
What is Vuplex? How does this protect my caravan windows from getting scratched?
VuPlex is an anti-static compound that reduces static and also the friction between your caravan cover and caravan window. Perspex windows can create static that can attract dirt and other grit particles. These dirt and grit particles are what causes abrasion/scratches to your windows when your soft inner layer of your caravan cover rubs against your window. Using the VuPlex compound will prolong the clarity of your caravan windows for longer periods. Otherwise making sure your caravan is clean prior to installing your cover will help to keep your windows crystal clear.
