How do I choose the right cover?
The cover you choose will depend on a number of factors. For instance, if you plan to use your cover for an extended period of time in direct weather conditions you will require a more heavy duty cover. However if you garage your vehicle for the majority of the time and you only plan to use your cover while you're on the road, you may consider using a lighter grade of cover.
Most importantly you will need the correct size. Measuring your caravan chassis (not the draw-bar) from front most panel to rear (metric measurement advised) you can compare your measurements with those appearing on our online store, ensuring that you choose correctly. It would be a shame to choose the wrong size, as once a cover has been shipped, our Suppliers will not accept returns for an incorrect choice.
How do I fit my cover?
Generally, most caravan / pop top / camper / motorhome covers are fitted in much the same way. However we supply a number of different brands of covers so there are some minor differences in the way they are fitted and secured. As a general rule of thumb the following instructions will assist you with fitting your cover correctly.
Ideally, you will need two people to fit your caravan cover.
N.B. your cover should not be fitted to a wet caravan.
- Make sure all aerials and protruding objects are fully retracted.
- Lay the cover out at the back (off-side Not door-side) of your caravan.
- Look for the front tag on the hem of the cover to indicate direction
- Stretch the caravan cover to its full length
- When the cover is fully stretched, find and unzip the 3 zips, which will open one side of the cover
- Lay the unzipped side panels over the top of the caravan cover
- One person should stand at each end of the caravan
- Check location of any obstruction such as air conditioners, antennas etc.
- When both people are ready, carefully pull the cover from the off side to the front door side
- Then fit the elastic hem of the cover to the front and rear of your caravan
- Pull all 3 zippers to the closed position. You have now fitted your caravan cover
- Pass the nylon straps under your caravan and fasten buckles to hold caravan cover firmly in place
