Our new Tow Pro+ was launched at the October Motorhome & Caravan Show 2018 and has continued to prove a hit with our customers, even in chilly December!
With three access points; including a new window drop down, the tailored towing protector allows you to get to the grab handles, locker box and window without removing the cover.
We love what we do, especially when we get asked to cover something a little out of the ordinary.
Now a chair isn't really our of the ordinary, per se, but the chairs in question are rather iconic, so we were pretty excited when we were asked to produce 4 special covers for them.
After a very busy and exciting year of growth, we're pleased to announce the appointments of Katie Fishwick as our new Managing Director, and Veronica Jeffries who joins Specialised Covers as Commercial Manager.
Katie, the daughter of Douglas and Carole Long who founded Specialised Covers back in 1981, will maintain the family heritage of the company and continue to build on the success achieved over the past 37 years. Many of our customers will already know Katie from previous shows and events!
It's amazing what you can achieve in a year, when you put your mind to it.
And, in just 365 days we built a brand new, purpose built factory, allowing us to double our production capacity and create more jobs here in Yorkshire, than ever before.
If you're visiting us for patterning & would like to park up over night in your van or motorhome, you're more than welcome to stay with us!
If we're producing a cover for your caravan or motorhome and we need to take a new pattern, it's more than likely you'll be visiting and staying for an hour or so whilst our Design Team take the measurements and create a tailored pattern for your vehicle.
On Sunday 10 June, we'll be supporting our own triathlete in training, Louise, who is taking part in the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds with the amazing Stephan & his daughter Chloe Couture, who has cerebral palsy.
The team of 3 will be raising money for Stephan's and his wife Jo's charity, Lady Bugs Trust, which helps improve the lives of disabled children & young adolescents.
CarSafe is based in an unbranded, rural, state of the art storage for classic and performance vehicles. The facility has often been described as more of a car showroom than a storage facility, but the service and environment reflect the very high standards expected by their clients.
CarSafe offers professional and secure vehicle storage solutions, operated by a passionate and experienced team of professionals.
We're excited to be nearing the end of the construction of our brand new factory.
With the launch planned for April, we'll be doubling our production capacity; which means we'll be able to protect more cars, caravans and motorbikes than ever before!
In August, Steve Jackson, editor of Nacelle, The Triumph Owners Club MCC came to visit us with his fabulous 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R.
Steve came all the way from Cheshire so we could take a pattern of his bike for both Prestige indoor and Stormshield outdoor covers (and also so we could have a natter, a few cups of tea and talk about a hat...).
We're already immensley proud of our hard work, first class products and family heritage here at Specialised Covers, but it was an honour to be selected as a 'Specialist Manufacturing Representative' for The Parliamentary Review.
Last week, we were invited to Westminster to join a small number of other outstanding organisations to see the very first copies of the printed review, and listen to key speakers sharing knowledge and insight into the business and public sector.
As the only caravan cover manufacturer invited to cover the brand new models, we're delighted to announce that we're now a 'Trusted Partner' of Coachman Caravans.
After patterning the new caravans, we visited Coachman last week where we covered the brand new 2018 Coachman models, including the VIP range, with their new Tow Pro + and Tow Pro Elite towing protectors.
If you have a rare, unusual or bespoke car, caravan or motorcycle and can't seem to find your vehicle on our website, don't worry! In the first instance, simply give us a call and we'll double check our patterns.
Over the years, we have built up a database of thousands of cover patterns, ranging from vintage to brand new models, so it's more than likely we do have yours.
