Caravanning used to be an activity restricted by the seasons. After all, isn't it all about the outdoor life and having fun in the sun?
For some, the winter months are about relaxing at home, in the warmth of their home. They may have spent the summer driving up and down the country - even across Europe and further afield - so winter is about putting their caravan into storage whilst they enjoy a well deserved rest at home.
As the days grow shorter, they inevitably get colder as winter approaches.
If your pride and joy is your car, or motorbike you'll no doubt look after it all year round. But as the winter months approach, it's important to take further steps to protect and preserve paint and body work.
If you love the great outdoors, whether that's staying close to home, or prefer adventure further afield, you'll probably agree that having a bike is a good way to get out and explore.
Whether you stick to cycle paths, or love to off-road, your bike can take a hit from the dirt and debris that can fly up. Washing it can be time consuming, but when it's clean and shiny it's nice to keep it that way until your next outing!
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.
Summer may be here, but at Specialised Covers we’re preparing for the busy autumn period.
As the weather turns cooler, people inevitably start to think about caravan storage and how to look after their pride and joy when holidays and weekends away are less frequent.
We're extremely proud of what we do here at Specialised Covers and the high quality of our products.
Our range of Patented Tow Pros are designed and manufactured by our highly skilled team in order to ensure caravans are protected from dirt and stones whilst being towed, on the open road.
At Specialised Covers, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail. As a company, we strive to provide a first-class service; this begins the moment a customer contacts us for the very first time, to when a cover is received, right through to our after sales service.
Our team work effortlessly to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied, at every step of their journey with us.
As you will know by now, all of our customers are invited to leave a review on Trust Pilot once they have received their car, caravan or motorbike cover. These reviews are essential to us as they allow us to ensure our service is first class, and if there are areas for improvement, we can address them immediately!
When Mr. Michael Dinnage of North Lincolnshire reviewed his Tow Pro +, we were delighted to hear how happy he was with both our service and his towing protector. And, as it's the caravan season, his feedback was even more important - especially for those people considering a Tow Pro this summer.
