Have you recently bought a motorhome or are you about to buy one? Know that in addition to all the accessories that you can decide to add, clearly based on your needs, you will also need to buy adequate coverage for the camper.
The cover of the camper is essential to protect it, when you are not using it, from the elements and thus avoid damage to the outside. It is very important to follow precise parameters to choose the type of coverage, because clearly one is not worth the other.
Here are the ones you should pay attention to:
Motorhome size – check the size of your motorhome and buy your cover based on this. Make sure it is the perfect size for your motorhome so that no part of it is exposed;
Cover material – choose the right material to protect your motorhome. There are different types of materials, such as PVC, polyester and those with breathable fabrics. The choice also depends a lot on the area where the camper will stop;
Weather resistance – opt for a cover that is weather resistant, i.e. rain, hail, strong winds, snow and sun. A good cover must also be able to protect the camper from UV rays.
Ease of application – choose an RV cover that is easy to install and uninstall;
Quality of coverage – always opt for quality and not for savings. In this way you will avoid major maintenance costs in the years to come;
Coverage guarantee – choose for coverage that is guaranteed, so if you have any problems with it, you can go back to the guarantee.
We at Caravanbacci are available to advise you on the cover for your motorhome that best suits your needs, providing you with all the information you need to make your choice with peace of mind.
WHY USE A CAMPER COVER?
A cover for the camper allows you to save a lot on maintenance costs in the future. But not only that, as it's clearly a well-maintained motorhome and also one that's easier to resell at a later date.
Faced with these two main reasons, we can tell you that coverage for the camper is also a guarantee for you, in the event that you do not have an indoor space in which to leave the camper and are therefore forced to park it outdoors.
In addition to these reasons, covering your camper when you are not using it, for example, because perhaps you are away all day for a trip, could also be a good habit to follow to avoid damage.
We imagine that it may seem tiring to cover and uncover the camper, but it is also true that the latter represents a way to ensure the protection of the camper from rain, wind and strong sun.
The sun can cause a lot of damage to the camper, both to the bodywork and the interior. This aspect should never be underestimated.
Now that you know how and why a cover for the camper, in summer or in winter, is useful, we'll help you understand what the cost could be, depending on the size and type.
