It was another fantastic 6 days at Birmingham's NEC last week, for The Caravan and Motorhome Show 2018. We were back on stand 18.11 to meet and greet our fabulous customers and demonstrate our covers.
The team were on hand to offer expert advice on our tailored covers and towing protectors and talk customers through the features and benefits of our protective covers. Customers were also able to take advantage of our exclusive show offers and discounts.
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 is still undoubtedly summer here in the UK (and what a scorcher!), but here at Specialised Covers, we have started planning for the autumn and the orders it will bring.
And, to stay ahead of the rush, until August 31st, we'd like to offer our customers £50 off all our full caravan and motorhome storage covers.
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.
With the UK continuing to bask in this glorious weather, don't forget your SPF - Specialised Protection Factor - during the summer months.
From faded paintwork and scrapes on cars and motorbikes, to chips on caravans caused by loose stones on the roads, our indoor and outdoor tailored covers offer protection from a host of outdoor elements including UV fade, tree sap, mess from birds and damage during travelling.
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.
A caravan is an expensive investment, so it's important you protect it from damage that can happen when you're towing.
Our range of patented Towing Protectors protect the front of your caravan from chips and stones that can fly up from the road when you're towing, as well as keeping dirt at bay, meaning less cleaning and more relaxation time when you arrive at your destination!
Your car doesn't just need protecting during winter.
If you keep your car outside, the spring and summer elements can be just as harmful to your car as the winter weather. Sunshine, tree sap, bird droppings and rain can all damage paint and body work.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery….well, we’re certainly feeling very flattered at the moment!
An unknown manufacturer has recently copied our Patented Tow Pro Lite and is selling it to the British market. We are currently working hard to ensure quality is upheld and consumers are not mislead.
The way people holiday is evolving. Where people holiday is changing.
Caravanning used to be considered a leisure pastime for older generations (especially touring caravan holidays) but over the past few years, people's perceptions have really changed as younger families, young couples and individuals have discovered caravanning.
