National Feast of Lanterns Cancelled

nfol cancelled

Well what a miserable summer we are having so far.  We have just got a call from The Camping and Caravanning Club to let us know that this years National Feast of Lanterns has been cancelled.  The reason, as you may guess, is down to the rain and a water logged site. We were really looking forward to the rally, especially after the Caravan Club's National Rally was cancelled for the very same reason.

We would just like to take the opportunity to send our sympathies to all those who have been in organising the event but we're sure that you'll be back next year even bigger and better. 

Here's a link to the official announcement

Caravan Club National Rally Cancelled

Unfortunately we have been informed that the National Caravan Club Rally at Eastnor Castle has been cancelled due to water logging.  The organisation started to set up this week to get the infrastructure organised and have found that grounds are completely water logged due to the huge amount of rainfall in April.

The Caravan Club have expressed their great regret and here are Protec we would like to second that, we have always had a great time at the National Caravan Rally and it's a great shame that we won't be able to attend but we will be atNational Feast of Lanterns 2012, 16th - 20th August 2012 - Longnewton Grange, Stockton on Tees.

You get more information about refunds and cancellation from The Caravan Club website

Don't forget that we'll be down in Peterborough this weekend for The National Motorhome Show from the 27th till 29th April.  Come down and see our motorhome covers with the exclusive brand new EASY FIT SYSTEM making it even easier to get your Protec Motorhome Cover on.  Protec have a huge database of motorhome patterns and no job is too big due to our highly specialised team. 

Many cover companies are not prepared to take on motohome covers due to the complexity and size but here at Pro-Tec Covers are covers are solutions tailored to meet your needs. See you there!!

An ExCellent ExCel Show

We are nursing our poor feet back to health over a hot cup of tea and a biscuit after a long show in London but we're not complaining. It's the first time we've done a London show since 2007 at Earl's Court and we're glad we've been at ExCel.  We've come back full of beans as it's been an ExCellent show and your feedback has been fantastic.  We have had a lot of people who have been to the show specifically to come and talk to us.  

Here at Pro-Tec Covers we know that there is nothing like face to face contact and we are especially pleased about your kind comments on our Exclusive Easy Fit System® which has been the star of the show.  Many of our customers have come to praise it and many have had a few questions.  The main concern has been as to whether the Easy Fit® would put a strain on the cover or if it would tear.  Well, as always, we put lots of time and effort into our design and that was also our first concern but we came up with the solution and we can assure that there is no chance of this happening.  

We had a very successful show and 97% of all full caravan covers and motorhome covers orders included the Easy Fit System®.  The only orders without the Easy Fit® were from existing customers who felt that the Standard Caravan Cover was easy enough to fit as it was.

As well as ordering the Easy Fit Caravan Cover® our new option of ordering National Flags on Towing Covers is going down a treat though we must say that due to it been a London show they were all English or Union Jack Flags.  Don't get left behind, fly your flag with pride!!

One of the other frequent questions was if our Towing Covers and protectors come with clear panels for the front lights.  Even though the law doesn't insist on them yet, WE DO.  Our Fitted Towing Covers come with fitted clear panels and our standard Protec Towing Cover comes with an easy to fit DIY kit. You won't be getting in bother with the law or your insurers with a Protec Towing Cover.

We also had time to speak to many of the manufacturers.  We have put a Bailey badge on Bailey Caravan Covers for years and we now have permission to do this with most major makes.  Thanks for putting your trust in Pro-Tec Covers.

Finally we would like to thank the NCC for organising such a well run show and as we are National Caravan Council members we got complimentary coffee in the NCC lounge and we also got Wi-Fi which was greatly appreciated.

See you all at Peterborough!!
