Why Protex 003 is the Best for Covers

At Pro-Tec Covers, we understand that as a caravan or motorhome owner, you would be going on off road adventures very often. This means you’d need a material for your towing cover that is strong and durable as well as light weight and breathable.

Back in the old days people used tarpaulins and non-breathable vinyls to cover their vehicles which caused all kinds of problems. Vehicles were badly affected by damp and condensation which became very costly to fix. Other issues included damage and scratching to vehicles paint work and windows. We decided that this wasn’t good enough and have developed our own exclusive material to revolutionise the caravan and motorhome covers market!

Our fabric, PROTEX003, is exclusive to Pro-Tec Covers in the caravan & motorhome market. We have worked closely with our UK manufacturer to get the highest quality fabric perfectly adapted to keep your investment protected. There are now many similar materials on the market. However, some competing manufacturers still use materials which are known to scratch paintwork and windows.  Some of our competitors recommend that you cover your windows when you have your caravan cover fitted but there is no need to do that with a Pro-Tec Cover.  

Protex003 is a 3-ply material which is developed and manufactured here in the UK specifically for the caravan and motorhome cover market.  The outer layer is available in three colours, green for rural storage, grey for urban surroundings or the royal blue option.  The external layer is UV protected and comes with a 3-year warranty on its properties. The inside membrane is non-abrasive to guarantee that the cover will not scratch your windows or paintwork. The outer layer is also waterproof up to a metre of water, meaning your vehicle is protected from even the most extreme British gales. 

Some manufacturers still use materials that don't breathe.  However, you can be safe in the knowledge that independent lab tests have shown our fabric to be much more breathable than our competitors meaning that condensation that typically leads to damp/mould will not be trapped. This means you can avoid rust and damp build up and extend the longevity of your vehicle!

When it comes to choosing a cover for your caravan or motorhome, make sure that you are choosing the best! With Protex003, you can be sure that your cover will protect your vehicle from external scratches and dirt as well as not scratching your vehicles paintwork and causing condensation and this material is only available from Pro-Tec Covers!
