Why Caravan Needs a Cover
The damage caused by leaving a vehicle outside in all weathers is very painful. Would
you leave your car out on the street or you can put it safely in the garage? You protect
your car from the damages as much as possible and it makes good thing to do this with
your caravan. Just like your car, you need to take care of your caravan, both inside and
outside, to reward you with many years of caravanning and, when you come to replace
it, keep reduction to a minimum.
It's not only the rain, dust and snow of winter that can cause damage to your caravan.
Rain contains the acids all year round, from a light shower to a heavy downpour, and a
build-up of sludge and green algae on your caravan roof is not only ugly but very time-
consuming to remove. As much as we all love to see it, sun can also be a problem for
your caravan, its powerful UV rays mainly attack on paintwork and upholstery. Caravan
windows too can be subject to damage.
The weather is only the start of the problem. Birds might well enhance your caravanning
experience, but they show no respect when it comes to where they leave their excreta!
Consider also the potential for nasty scratches, bumps and even from the audacious
thief. A good caravan cover is that can save you upset and expense. You can even buy
one that will help your caravan blend in with its surroundings. After all, wouldn't you
rather be out enjoying your caravan than spending precious time in cleaning or
The well-fitting cover, especially one made to fit your own particular caravan, is a micro
porous barrier. Just as our own skin is waterproof and 'breathable', exhaling
condensation, so the caravan's weather resistant cover can protect it from damp as well
as all other environmental damage. Most covers are made from polypropylene, a
versatile material well known for its toughness, strength and its powerful resistance to
chemicals, grease, oil and heat.
Your caravan is an investment and deserves sound protection. Look after it all year
round and you will reap the maximum benefit from it. Time spent on good 'over-
wintering' will pay off when it comes to the spring and the wise caravanned will follow a
check-list of jobs to do before settling it into hibernation. Removing all the contents,
leaving the fridge door open and giving the caravan a good clean and polish will all stand
you in good stead for next season and rounding everything off with a good quality
caravan cover will be a job well done.
