Protec Covers in Oz

protec australia

We are thrilled to announce that Protec Covers and Bailey Caravans Australia are now working together and the Bailey dealer network are now stocking our caravan covers and towing covers all over Australia.

The response has been fantastic and we are proud to working with our Aussie cousins to protect Bailey caravans in what must be without doubt one of the most testing, hostile landscapes on the planet.  

Bailey Australia have been having a fantastic year and their arrival in Australia has been phenomenal.  They were recently on the front page of the Caravan & Motorhome magazine and were featured in a four page spread and also in the Caravan World Magazine.  The reviews are excellent and we're looking forward to a great future down under with these top class products.

The Joys of the Great "Indoors"

Well it looks like spring is here in all its glory!  Though if it's still a bit nippy for some of you then here's some food for thought from Berlin, Indoor Camping.  This quirky idea is a low cost hotel situated in an old renovated vacuum cleaner factory.

The Huttenpalast (The Hut Palace in English) is made up of salvaged caravans and camping huts which have been renovated and turned into individual rooms.  So if there is the habitual spring shower there'll be no rushing about in the awning as the hotel has a cafe and patio.  If camping indoors is not your thing then they do have 6 "normal" en suite rooms.

How not to fit a caravan cover!!



Take a look at these guys showing us how NOT to fit a caravan cover!!! They should have bought our Protec Caravan Cover with the EASY FIT system and if you want the EASY FIT system with your fitted caravan cover or RV cover then get it for free in March.



Bailey Goes Super Size

Whilst we were down at the ExCel Motorhome, Caravan & Camping Show last week we got to see the new Bailey Retreat and boy is it big.  The Bailey Retreat is a touring caravan that is designed to be used for a longer stay making it a British competitor of some of the larger continental vans.

The first major difference is its whopping size with an internal length of 7.29m and a width of 2.32m providing an extra 25% of internal space. However you don't have to worry about the dimensions for a neatly fitted caravan cover as we've taken all the measurements for all the new Bailey caravans. On top of that we are also used and approved by Bailey.

The body is the highly successful Alu-Tec Shell making it suitable for all year round caravanning and it's built on a heavy duty Alko chassis.  The interior has lots of headroom and is extremely spacious and light, with stylish design and quality.  The high quality windows let in a vast amount of light as well as the Heki panoramic lights throughout the van.

The Bailey retreat comes as 4 berth and 6 berth with all the mod cons of home such as chrome finish, quality furnishings, hobs, microwaves, central heating and even a heated towel rail.

Take a look at the Bailey Retreat here, we're sure you'll be impressed
