Important: Universal products are not custom fitted to your vehicle.
Over the last few years, caravanning has experienced something of a resurgence. More Australians than ever are packing their families into their 4WD and hitting the road in search of an affordable, exciting holiday with a difference. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the luxury of being on vacation all the time, which means that for much of the year, our caravans sit waiting for that glorious weekend when we can finally fire them up again and head out on an adventure.
There are however, a few simple steps that you should take before putting your caravan away - including a general clean, emptying the tank and checking over the entire vehicle. When it comes to appearance, perhaps the most important step is to put your caravan beneath a cover to keep it sheltered from the elements. This will help to prevent damage, which isn't only important for aesthetics but also for resale value down the line.
Everything from the weather to pets can be a potential hazard to your vehicle's appearance, but with a caravan cover from Motoquipe, you can rest assured that your investment is protected.
Much the same as our range of car covers, protection for caravans can keep your them safe and secure while not in use. Potential irritants range from the simple (fingerprints) to the more serious (the prying eyes of thieves), but a good cover keeps your vehicle hidden from them all. Modern covers are non-abrasive and resistant to both water and UV rays, so you can rest easy knowing that nothing can get through to your paintwork.
Not only does this help with a vehicle's appearance, but it can also radically reduce the onset of rust which often occurs with caravans that are left outside for long periods of time. Even if you store your caravan inside a garage or shed, a cover can stop that familiar coat of dust from completely covering the surface. A cover is also more affordable than paying for storage elsewhere, which can actually be something of an inconvenience if you decide to take a spur of the moment holiday.
The Motoquipe range
Like all of our accessories for car interiors and exteriors, Motoquipe has a wide range of different options available when it comes to caravan covers. All of the options are sold online, which makes it easy for you to browse and choose the one that best suits your caravan. The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a cover is a snug fit. Too tight and you won't be able to get it on or off. Too large and it will rustle, providing inadequate protection. To help you strike the perfect balance, Motoquipe provides exact sizes for all of our caravan covers.
There are two different types of covers to choose from, depending on your budget. The Van Guard covers are the more affordable, while the luxury Prestige selection provides the very best protection. Motoquipe also stocks a range of other caravan accessories and covers that can be used when driving. The most common is a cover for the spare wheel, which needs to be kept in tip top shape to make sure your holiday doesn't get ruined by a nasty flat tyre.
The bottom line
No matter where you're next journey takes you; make sure to keep your caravan protected with a strong, durable caravan cover.
