Towing cover design update

Since the middle of 2021 our towing range has undergone modifications, including the removal of the stretch fabric at the sides of the cover, visual style updates and the straps at the top, these have been removed and altered following consumer feedback. The stretch fabric has been removed to increase longevity of the cover. We had received feedback of the fabric laddering or ripping at the corners over time. The safety straps on the top of the cover were deemed redundant, equally customers had fed back that they flapped whilst travelling and were often over tightened tearing the cover. These alteration have then impacted on the visual of the cover.

Where to start….. Hi, I’m Holly, I’m officially the Finance & Customer Services Manager at Specialised Covers.

I’ve been convinced to do my bit second, this is because this month marks my 3 year anniversary with the business, when my fellow managers missed my 1 year anniversary & then my 2 year anniversary there were repercussions that lasted to this day (I complain & remind them of it at any given opportunity), so when they suggested I do this as a kind of commemoration I of course leapt at the chance.

Tow Pro + and Tow Pro Elite front designs

Every Tow pro + and Elite we make is tailored to your caravan, that means that the covers will look different from each other depending on the make.

Coachman caravans often have two locker boxes separated on the front creating a divide down the centre, Bailey caravans have no front locker at all and Swift lockers run around the outer edge of the front section. All these design differences create different front towing covers. The visual element of the towing cover is lead by the shape of the caravan. The location of the grab handles and that relationship between the window and the locker is dealt with in a number of different ways. If the handles follow the styling lines of the other openings, we have no choice but to build that into the same opening. This will be done with double ended zips so that section can be accessed independently. If the handles are horizontal then they will require a completely separate access point. This is all driven by the caravan shape.

When you’re not using your caravan, it makes perfect sense to put a cover on it to protect it from the typically miserable weather we see during the winter. To do this effectively, however, you’ll want to ensure you’ve chosen the best caravan cover for the job.

New CAD Team at Specialised

This year we have invested heavily in both hardware, software and people within our design team. Our business strategy is to move further into 3D modelling, generating patterns and covers directly from the models. To support this growth we have recruited three new CAD Technicians to Specialised Covers within the last few months.

Jonathan who started in Nov 2020 had graduated from Brunel University with First class Hons in BEng Automotive Engineering and has been an unbelievable asset to the team. He has taken straight to Solidworks and adapted his knowledge to support a very new area for him, working with fabric and creating functional whilst atheistic pleasing products. He has been a pleasure joining the team and his willingness to learn and support his colleagues has been a delight to see.
