Do you wish you had a motorhome cover but never knew which one to buy and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each type ?

Our Guide to Motorhome Covers will help you choose the best one for your needs.

Many of us don’t have the time or interest in using our motorhomes all year round and so at some point in time we decide it’s time to clear them out and put them to bed until the next season starts.

If like most people you simply drain out the water, remove foodstuffs from the fridge and close and lock the door then it’s time to get a cover.

This is where the problem starts !

Exposed to the elements for Autumn and Winter can allow tree sap to stain your motorhome and get into all the seals, bird droppings can plaster your motorhome and as it is acidic it eats into the paintwork creating expensive rectification work in its wake.

Without a cover, leaves, dust and dirt end up coating your roof.

Rainwater sits in all the nooks and crevices on your roof and over Winter freezes and thaws and eats into Skylight seals.

Prevention is better than cure !

Why suffer the issues above when adding a simply breathable Motorhome cover can prevent them all.

Modern motorhome covers are breathable, lightweight, ultra strong and long lasting but like everything you get what you pay for. Don’t go for the seemingly sound product gimmick of being 100% waterproof for a motorhome cover as in fact this is not the way to go. Ensure whichever motorhome cover you buy is breathable as a 100% waterproof cover will actually cause issues as it traps moisture inside and then damp and condensation has no means of escape and will start causing issues with the motorhome instead. No-one wants to come back to a vehicle that has a cover on to find damp inside due to fitting a cheap none breathable motorhome cover.

It’s always a good idea to give your Motorhome a thorough clean all over and a polish to seal it before bedding it down and enveloping it in your motorhome cover.
