Default Caravan Covers

ebay have lists of caravan covers for£150. Im not advertising however..
but i wonder what your getting for the money. they state they are
breathable, wont scratch, are not waterproof cause they are breathable (as i
would expect).

has anyone used one of these 'silver' covers ? Any experiences?

I'd rather not cover my van but its a target for a group of bloody pidgeon
and now takes on a mottled effect due to all the bird **** - and next door
is in the RSPB so i cant shoot them!.Would be easier to clean a cover than
climb up to do the van roof!.

regards

I don't know what the ones you mention are like because I don't go to e-bay.

We had a superb made to measure cover from Specialised Accessories for the
caravan on our daughter's farm but it was expensive and our daughter's cat
shredded the roof. If I'd had a gun ...

We also have a cover from Towsure for the one in our front garden, which is
silver/grey, breathable, won't scratch and IS very definitely waterproof. I
couldn't believe that it would resist some of the huge downpours we've had,
nor snow lying on it - and thawing - for days but it has done.

It's not made to measure so it's not quite as smart or convenient as the SA
one but it works - and it cost £80 + £5 carriage for our size. I suspect
that this is the type you've seen on e-bay because Towsure does state that
it isn't waterproof. I think that's a legal clause because they can't
guarantee it 100% but in our experience (since September 2005) it hasn't let
a drop of water through.

Even a 23' cover isn't as expensive as £150 so don't rush to e-bay.!

Sadly, they don't do one small enough for our little Welsh one (10') so it
has a tarpaulin covering it at the moment.

my van and bought on from Ebay £96 verry good its the same as the towsure
covers. I have put it on my van last Wednesday ( it has not got wet yet)
its silver/grey and breathable however its just too big. I purchased it imn
May and only just put it on the van. Too late to send it back so I need to

Agreed. We have a Specialised Accessories cover. Expensive, but worth every
penny. It's much easier than I thought to get on and off, fits perfectly,
the strap arrangement keeps it tight and in position, and it's totally 100%
waterproof. Breathable too. Highly recommended. If only all things in the
caravan world were as well-made and robust as this.
