Practical Caravan competition

Specialised Covers is offering one lucky Practical Caravan reader the chance to win one of the company's bespoke caravan covers Caravan covers are a great for protecting your caravan from the elements, particularly if it’s been stored outside over the winter months. Wind, rain, road grit, droppings and black streaks can all cause damage to the bodywork and rubber seals. Plus harmful UV rays will cause your curtains and upholstery to fade over time. Another added benefit to fitting a caravan cover is that it may deter the opportunist thief. If they can't see what’s inside they may be less inclined to break in. Also getting a cover off is not an easy or discreet task to attempt in the dark. Leading manufacturer Specialised Covers make bespoke covers to fit all makes and models of caravans, allowing for an exact fit that snuggles around the van. This ensures that there isn’t any loose material that can move around and cause damage to the paintwork, a problem that occurs with some universal fit covers. All their caravan covers are made to order, nothing is off the shelf. A unique database holds the measurements and dimensions of thousands of brands, so all customers need to supply is the make and model of their ‘van and these guys will do the rest. No fiddling around with a tape measure or digging out the handbook required. The bespoke covers are made from a fabric called Torrant – a non abrasive and breathable material that is designed to keep the harmful elements out while keeping the caravan clean and dry. The fabric is made up of three separate layers that are heat laminated together to form a single protective barrier and a moisture vapour permeable (MVP)  membrane prevents water from penetrating through, yet allows trapped moisture to evaporate from out from under the cover. Each of the tailored covers has a velcro door and optional locker box access, allowing you to gain access to your caravan while the cover is still on with minimal fuss. Fitting one of the covers is a two-man job but the provided telescopic poles help keep the process as simple as possible. Once on it can secured and tightened into place with buckle fastening straps, which pass under and around the caravan. Covers are available in a choice of three colours, grey, green or blue.
