Caring for your Caravan Cover.

Fitting, and looking after, your CoversShop Tailor-Made and Ready-Made Caravan covers.

Firstly , fitting the cover to your caravan:

  • You may have noticed the cover is packed in its bag inside out. This is done on purpose to make fitting it easier.
  • Take the cover out of its bag and sort out the front from the back. This should be quite straight forward as there is a label that says “front”. Don't unroll the cover yet; if you can't see it, then you have the back.
  • Put the cover on the roof of your caravan, pointing in the right direction, and unroll it down the length, being careful with your aerials and chimney flues. Locate the cover on the roof properly by putting the pockets (if you have asked for them) over these protrusions. Once unrolled, if the sides haven't dropped down, pull them down and do up the securing straps.
  • If you are unable to unroll the cover on the roof, unroll it on the ground nearby and drag it lengthways over your van. This is easiest done with 2 people.

To pack the cover back into its bag, simply reverse this procedure by folding the cover inwards first, and then rolling up.

To clean your cover:

  • Use warm soapy water (washing up liquid is fine), and sponge the cover down. Probably easiest done while in place on your caravan.
  • Don't put it in a washing machine! The fabric treatments will not withstand this.
  • If any oil or grease gets on the cover, a degreaser such as Gunk can be used.
  • It is best not to cover a dirty caravan, but if any dirt does get on the underside of the cover, again sponge it off with warm soapy water. Also, if your caravan is dirty, beware of the cover rubbing the dirt against your paintwork.

Warnings:

Beware of any sharp points, especially if you have not asked us to add pockets for protrusions. Unless covered with an old glove or something similar, they are likely to tear the cover.
