Towing Jacket VS. Caravan Cover?

There are so many options to protecting your caravan/motorhome, it can be hard to know what the right fit for your vehicle is! Luckily, in our blog today we are going to go over the difference between a towing jacket and a storage cover and the benefits of both, which should help you decide which one is right for you.

Towing Jackets

A towing jacket is the perfect way to protect your vehicle when it is in transit. Our Pro-Tec Towing Jacket is especially designed to provide your caravan with excellent protection against road dirt and grime, bug waste and exhaust fume stains.

Our towing jacket is a unique 2-piece construction, each of the two halves slide up into the awning channels and then simply zip together in the middle. It’s so simple!

The towing jacket meets all legal requirements for visibility of your front lights and is tailored to your specific make and model of your caravan, so we know exactly where your front marker lights are located and we have clear panels in the correct position so your lights can be clearly seen. The towing jacket offers incredible protection when towing!

Our Towing Jackets also have the option of grab handle access, meaning you can get access to your grab handles without having to remove the cover once you get to site.

Stone chips are a threat to caravans and motorhomes in transit as it can chip your window and that is not a cheap job to repair, especially compared to the cost of our towing jackets.

Therefore, if you find yourself towing your caravan quite regularly and especially on long journey we would definitely recommend you purchase one of our Towing Jacket covers!

Caravan Covers

Our full Easy-Fit caravan cover is more suited to protect your caravan against UV rays, rain, rust, snow, dust and dirt and so much more whilst it is in storage.

The cover is fully breathable, so it provides protection for your caravan from mould, mildew and condensation. The cover will allow naturally occurring moisture to evaporate through the fabric’s breathable membrane.

Our Easy-Fit covers come fully tailored to each make and model with habitation door access and allowances for any roof furniture. We can even add clear solar panel inserts to the covers as an optional extra!

If your caravan is kept in either outdoor or indoor storage throughout periods of the year our full covers are ideal for protecting your caravan and ensuring your vehicles value and longevity.

We have been developing and manufacturing caravan covers and towing jackets for over 20 years in the heart of Yorkshire. We are avid caravanners ourselves so we know exactly what people need when it comes to a cover either for towing or for storage.
