Are Caravan Top Covers Any Good?

If you love your leisure vehicle, you may be considering purchasing a caravan top (roof) cover to protect the top of your ‘van from the elements.

But before spending your hard-earned cash, it’s essential to understand the pros and cons of roof covers and whether they are a good choice for your needs. In this blog, we will explore the topic of “Are Caravan Top Covers Any Good?” and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

The Pros of Caravan Top Covers

One of the most notable benefits of caravan roof covers is the protection they offer for the roof of your caravan.

The roof is one of the most exposed parts of a caravan and is susceptible to damage from the sun, rain, and wind. Well-made caravan top covers are made from robust, weather-resistant materials that can withstand these conditions and help to keep the roof in good shape for longer.

Not to mention keeping pesky bird deposits from splattering your pride and joy!

The Cons of Caravan Top Covers

The most significant drawback of caravan top covers is how hard they are to install. Unlike Protec full covers (which are super-easy thanks to our Easy-Fit system caravan top covers require a considerable amount of time and effort to put in place.

They are often heavy and awkward to handle, which can make the installation process frustrating and overwhelming.

In addition to their difficulty in installing, caravan top covers are also costly. Despite only protecting the caravan’s roof, these covers can cost almost the same as a full cover, making them an expensive investment for caravan owners.

Before we designed our Easy-Fit covers.

The most obvious disadvantage of caravan top covers is that they only protect the roof. While the roof is an integral part of a caravan, it is not the only part vulnerable to damage. The sides and rear of the caravan are also exposed to the elements; without proper protection, these areas can become damaged over time. This means that even with a top cover in place, owners still need to be vigilant about protecting their caravan from the elements.

We made the decision to stop making roof covers years ago for all these reasons.

The Alternative: A Full Caravan Cover

Given these limitations, it is understandable why many caravan owners opt for a full caravan cover instead. Full caravan covers are designed to protect the entire vehicle, including the roof, sides, and rear. They offer more comprehensive protection and are also more cost-effective, as they can often be purchased for a similar or lower price than a caravan top cover.

Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. At Protec Covers, we make the easiest-to-fit full covers on the market at a price that isn’t much more than a costly roof cover!
