Why does my motorhome need a cover?

Not everyone has the luxury or ability to be able to store their motorhomes in a climate-controlled indoor facility – and many motorhomes will be forced to endure extreme weather all year round. Therefore, a need is created for an easy solution to help protect your motorhome. But, why exactly should you cover your motorhome? 
Harsh Environments/Moisture Control
We think it goes without saying that using a cover for your motorhome can help protect it from harsh environments such as heavy wind and rainfall, as well as sleet and snow. Although some covers, when left unattended, can start creating condensation, mildew, and mould due to unbreathable fabrics. It is essential that when choosing your motorhome cover, that you choose a material that is breathable – allowing naturally occurring moisture to evaporate. At Pro-Tec, our material is independently proven by lab reports to be significantly more breathable than our nearest competitor. 
Protection from Dust & Dirt 
Constantly cleaning your motorhome when the weather is poor can be seen, by anyone, as quite the task. Choosing to protect it with the use of a quality cover can help reduce the number of times this is needed – therefore saving you time and energy.
UV Damage Protection 
That’s right – not only can the wind and rain damage your motorhome, but the sun can, too! The sun’s ultraviolet rays can affect your motorhome by fading the colouring as well as corroding and cracking the paint. Make sure that the cover of your choice has UV-blocking properties is essential, as just because the light is blocked, doesn’t always mean that the UV rays are as well. At Pro-Tec we ensure that all our motorhome covers are UV-preventative. 
Safety & Security 
The benefits of a cover don’t only focus on the timely preservation of your motorhome asset, but also the safety and security of it. In terms of a cover, this will help hide the identity of your motorhome to a certain degree whilst it’s left dormant during the harsh winter months and has the potential to ‘hide’ any valuables left inside (although, we still recommend removing anything of value from your motorhome whilst it’s not in use).
