Pro-tec Guarantee


The properties of Pro-Tec Covers’ exclusive material, CaravanShield (waterproofing, breathability, UV stability), are guaranteed for 3 years on full covers and 12 months on towing covers. Pro-Tec’s workmanship is under warranty for 12 months. Pro-Tec Covers will not be liable to you or indemnify you for any claims relating to third party components. Pro-Tec will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages with respect to third party components. Pro-Tec must be allowed to inspect any possible damages at their premises. Should there be possible problem with the cover, then return postage will be arranged and paid for by the customer. No remedial work should be carried out on the cover without Pro-Tec’s agreement, as this will invalidate the guarantee. Returned covers must be securely packed prior to return and must be thoroughly cleaned, as Pro-Tec will not handle dirty covers due to the health & safety of our staff. Any return of covers must be previously arranged with Pro-Tec Covers prior to sending. 

In no circumstances shall the Company’s liability to the Buyer for any breach of guarantee exceed the price paid for the Goods with respect to which the claim is made. Any possible refunds will be assessed on a pro-rata basis. Covers should be cleaned on a regular basis, depending upon level of usage with water and gentle soap solution if required, to ensure the materials retain their properties. Improper care may result in degradation of the material and invalidate the fabric guarantee. In certain weather conditions, moisture from the ground can condense on the vehicle until a change in conditions allows the moisture to evaporate through the material. This is unavoidable and is not a result of the breathability or waterproofness of the material. Should the Company deem that a replacement be provided prior to original Goods being returned, it is the Buyer’s responsibility to ensure that the original Goods are available for collection at the same time as the replacement is delivered. The vehicle must be free from dirt, dust and any other debris prior to fitting.

Pro-Tec’s covers are designed for UK weather conditions and the warranty does not cover products used outside of the UK. Pro-Tec Covers will not be responsible: ▪ If the Buyer has not ensured that protruding or sharp edges are covered and prevented from coming into contact with the cover; ▪ If the Buyer has not thoroughly cleaned the vehicle before fitting the cover; ▪ For vehicles which have been polished by the cover, when the vehicle has been dulled by traffic film, wax build-up and exposure to the elements; ▪ For damage caused by incorrect use; ▪ For damage caused by incorrect fitting, as this is a supply only contract ▪ For standard wear or tear to the cover. The Company’s covers are designed to protect vehicles from rain, dirt, tree sap and bird droppings. The Company will not be liable for damage to vehicles caused by improper or incorrect usage or external forces not exclusive of but including vandalism, animals such as cats and birds or cases of force majeure.

How to Properly Use Your Towing Mirrors

Safety is always the highest importance when towing your caravan, both the safety of you and of your caravan! Towing mirrors are vital when on the roads with your caravan, read our helpful guide to towing mirrors so you’re fully equipped to get yours!


What Does the Law Say?

In simple terms, it is a legal requirement for you to have towing mirrors installed when towing your caravan on the roads. Legally you need to be able to see, clearly, an area that is 4m wide from the sides of your caravan. There is however one exception that if your caravan is smaller than a 4x4 car you are not required to use mirror extensions. This would be an extremely small caravan! So, generally YES you do need towing mirrors, legally.


What Do Towing Mirrors Actually Do?

Towing mirrors are there so you can see better as the caravan obstructs a lot of your view when driving and towing. The mirrors extend outward, further than the average side mirror, increasing your vision to see other cars, changing lanes, reversing, and general road view. They overall increase the safety of your towing experience.


Which Towing Mirrors Should I Get?

Towing mirrors come in many varieties, specific to make and model of cars, universal, clamping mirrors, stick-on mirrors, there are so many options it may seem overwhelming to choose the ‘right’ one. Towing mirrors with clamps are generally recognised as being the best and most secure option by regular caravan users.

What about when it comes to your car’s make and model? Does it matter when choosing your mirrors? In contrast to popular opinion, having universal mirrors may be the most beneficial to you and your caravanning future. Mirrors are an investment that you don’t want to regularly replace. By purchasing universal mirrors, you prevent buying new mirrors every time you change your vehicle!


Where Can I Get My Mirrors From?

Towing mirrors can be bought in many different places, especially online through many different vendors. The best place we suggest getting your towing mirrors from is through your local caravan dealer’s accessories shop. Here you can get advice on what’s best for your specific situation, travel habits, car model & caravan. Here you will also have the expert help of someone to fit your mirrors for you, ensuring they are on correctly & safely.


Make Sure They’re Clean Before Towing!

It is of the upmost importance to ensure your towing mirrors are clean before getting on the road again! If you have recently been towing your caravan out on the road, it is very likely that dirt, dust & mud has ended up on your mirrors. All of this will be obstructing your view, increasing the likeliness of a potential accident. Always give your mirrors a good wipe down before heading out!


Other Than Towing Mirrors How Else Can I Protect My Caravan on The Road?

Another way to protect your caravan on the road whilst towing is through the use of towing jackets! Lots of pebbles and stones are likely to flick up off the road and your tyres, causing chips which can lead to rusting and expensive repairs in the future. Towing jacketsprotect the front of your caravan and prevent this from happening, saving you pennies in the long run.

The Show Must Go On - Save £45 off Pro-Tec Full Covers


We’ve been attending the Motorhome & Caravan Show at the NEC in Birmingham since its inception in 2011.

We love interacting with our customers (past, present, and future) and chatting with you about this wonderful passion of ours. To celebrate the shows, we always run promotions to give something back to our customers.

Sadly, the 2021 show has been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic and the increased risk the delta variant poses.

Fear Not ...

Despite the show’s cancellation, we’re still running our annual promotion to give you sizable discounts across our entire protective cover range. We’re giving you £45 off any full caravan or motorhome cover when you apply the promo code SHOW45 when you check out on our online store or quote it to one of our expert sales team if you order over the phone.

If you’re after one of our exclusive Towing Jackets or Universal Towing Covers you’ll automatically get £25 off your order whether you buy online or over the phone. You don’t need to do anything other than work out what to spend your extra cash on.

But There’s More …

Not only are we running our annual promotion in the absence of the Motorhome and Caravan Show, but we’ve also been given the green light (Thanks to Keith & Anne) to extend the length of the promotion by six weeks.

Starting on Monday 23rd of August and running until Sunday 31st of October, you can buy your premium protective cover at a discounted price.

But don’t wait too long to buy your full cover or towing jacket. Our promotions are hugely popular, and the number of orders we receive is always dramatically increased compared to typical months. 

The sooner you place your order, the sooner your cover will go into production.

The Savings Don’t Stop There …

The savings don’t stop there because we believe in rewarding loyalty.

If you’ve bought a full caravan or motorhome cover from us before, you can benefit from our ‘Returning Customer Discount,’ which will reduce the price of your order (for full covers only) by a further 5% on top of your show discount.

Stacking both promotions could potentially save you up to £80 (depending on the cover you buy) off your order. 


  • SHOW45 promotion runs from 9 am 23/8/21 to 11:59 pm 31/10/21
  • Promotion codes can not be used in conjunction with any other promotions except ‘Returning Customer Discount.’ RCD 5% will be deducted after the £45 discount has been applied. (Returning Customer Discount only applies to full covers).
  • Discounts for Towing Jackets and Universal Towing Covers will automatically be applied.

Meet the new Pro-tec creative team





We always strive for perfection, even though we know that’s not genuinely attainable.


“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” as they say.


While we aimed our laser-like focus at perfecting our designs, improving quality, and working our way through the hundreds of orders we receive each week, we’ve neglected to update the Pro-Tec website over the years.


You may have noticed that it’s not the most … shall we say … ‘modern’ website on the internet, and it can be clunky to use.


We hold our hands up; we’ve let you down. 


But that stops here.


As we aim to update our online presence to bring it into line with our technologically advanced products, we’ve called for help from the caravan & motorhome cover industry’s equivalent of the Avengers to form the new Pro-Tec Covers creative team.


With immediate effect, Peter & Paul (yes, we’re aware of the biblical and literary connections) will get to work updating our current website, so it’s easier to read, easier to use, and full of more helpful information. Simultaneously, they’ll begin drawing up the blueprints for a new, more functional website to give you a fluid and dynamic shopping experience.


Between them, Paul & Peter have over 25 years of experience in the field of content writing, copywriting, and graphic design.


Their levels of expertise don’t stop there … oh no … our new team has been in the protective covers trade for a combined total of more than a decade. They know the business inside and out**.


In the coming weeks, expect to see tweaks and changes to our primary website and the online shop and improvements to our informational and social media content.


Building a new website from scratch takes time. It won’t materialise overnight, but we hope to have it up and running within the next 6 months.


Keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts for further updates and delicious content from the boys.
