All about Easy-Fit

Your caravans and motorhomes deserve the best protection all year round and you can guarantee this with one of our Pro-Tec covers. You want to be able to fit and take off the cover at any given opportunity, quickly and effortlessly. How is this possible, you may ask?  

 

While in the past we received many compliments from customers praising the quality of our caravan and motorhome covers, some customers indicated that the covers could be a touch cumbersome to fit. We agreed, long caravan and motorhome covers can stretch 20ft-40ft which can prove challenging to manoeuvre while balancing on a step ladder. In response to customer feedback, we conducted thorough research in aid of a solution and we now produce and provide the Easy-Fit System with all full covers. 

 

The Easy-Fit system is a unique way to fit or take off your Pro-Tec cover quickly with minimal effort. pair of heavy-duty extendable poles are provided that can hook into the fitted D-Rings to slide the cover into place. The covers are designed with an open back panel that rolls up, so once the fitting pole is hooked, you can slide the cover across the natural sloping front of the caravan without fear of it getting caught. When the cover is in place, simply roll down this back panel, velcro it down and clip the buckles into place.  

 

This system is the only one available on the market, exclusive to Pro-Tec covers. Although the process is a lot easier, the heavy-duty strapping with adjustable easy release buckles ensures that the cover is robust, and your vehicle is well protected. The innovative Easy-Fit System is manufactured with sturdy non-rip material that will not weaken the cover; in fact, it probably strengthens it.   

 

This method means you don’t need as much height, so you can say goodbye to that step ladder for good. The length of the poles also gives you a lot more freedom of movement, which makes it possible to fit and take off a cover by yourself with ease.  Don't just take our word for it, you can see fellow caravanners demonstrating how easy it is! Click here to watch. 

 

The Easy-Fit system is like no other cover assistance mechanism out there. At first, the exclusive Easy-Fit System was available as an accessory feature but due to popular demand, it is now offered as standard on all full caravan and motorhome covers.  

 

Don’t waste any more time on leaving your caravan or motorhome without suitable protection. The Easy-Fit system is provided as a standard with all covers so make your order today! Click here to shop.

Caravan & Motorhome maintenance during COVID-19

Everything is uncertain right now, but what we do know is that we won’t be heading out in our caravans or motorhomes any time soon. It’s such a shame but protecting yourself is more important! 

 

Whilst you’re protecting yourself, why not also protect your vehicle. Your vehicle will have to stay stored for a little while longer, but we have got some tips on how to make sure it stays fresh and maintained so that when you can head out in it, you’re ready to go! 

 

Have a look at our maintenance tips below! 

 

Check your tyres 

 

We don’t know how long this will all be going on for, but if your tyres are stood still for a long time it is best to check them and regularly as you would your car tyres. This means when you go to head out, there will be no nasty surprises! 

 

Spring Clean 

 

You might have already done this for winter storage, but since you have time to kill having a clean over the inside won’t hurt. Give the floors and any carpets a hoover and make sure the inside is as tidy as can be, that way when you can go back on the road you won’t have to waste time doing a big clean. 

 

Check your electrics 

 

Connect up all your electrics to test them and ensure that all your lights (including brake and indicator lights) are working as normal. This will indicate to you whether you need to replace any bulbs and gives you plenty of time to sort it, rather than delaying your caravanning plans even further! 

 

Get a cover 

 

This is one of the most important steps, and no we’re not being biased! You may think a cover is just for the wetter months, but that’s not true.  

In fact, our covers are just as effective in the summer as they are in the winter! Our covers have UV protection in the fabric, so throughout the summer, your paintwork is protected from fading and the harmful UV rays from the sun.  

 

Aside from the UV protection, it also offers great protection against animal waste, tree sap and all of the other great joys of nature which are no good for your caravan! 

Looking after your caravan now will mean when it does come to getting it back on the road, you won’t have to wait around for anything. You can just go! 

 

Don’t leave it to chance, it’s worth getting your storage cover now so that your vehicle is protected whilst it’s not being used.
