What Do Towing Covers Do?

In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definition, a Towing Cover attaches to the front of your caravan to protect it from dirt, oil, and road debris damaging your van while you’re towing it to and from your destination.

Are All Front Towing Covers The Same?

Absolutely Not.

There are plenty of different styles and brands that differ in function, quality, and price.

#3 towing covers, worst, Better, Best

The Cheapest of Cheap
There are some misguided caravanners out there who’ll strap any old piece of fabric to the front of their van in a last-ditch attempt to prevent damage.

More often than not, these types of bargain-basement covers will do more harm than good. Avoid them at all costs.

Universal/Generic Towing Covers
Assuming the fabric used on your universal cover is decent, these types of covers are better than nothing. However, getting them to fit will require a lot of faffing about tightening straps and clipping clips.

Well-designed generic covers look ok, but poorly-designed covers will have a lot of excess fabric flapping in the wind that not only looks unsightly but also has the potential to cause damage.

Universal covers usually strike a good balance between affordability and quality and are a good choice for people on a budget.

One-Piece Tailored Towing Cover
This towing cover type is a step above the universal products, thanks to the specific patterns put in place for each vehicle.

A tailored cover looks sleek and stylish and will have apertures already in place for the front towing lights

so you know that it meets all legal requirements for towing.

However, because the front panel is a singular piece, they can be tricky to fit, especially if you’re on your own.

Certain brands make decent tailored towing covers; however, they’re pretty pricey and not as good as tailored Towing Jackets.
