The roof cover fits directly into the awning channels on either side and is secured with full length zips running front to back. This makes the cover lighter and easier to fit than our full storage covers. You do still need to lift the full roof panel up and over the caravan which we recommend using a ladder or step to help reach the roof line.
Caravan Roof Cover
Starting from £449.00
Our tailored caravan roof cover has taken many years and designs to bring to market but its finally here.
The cover now fulfils our customer requirements and our design specifications, and we are excited to introduce it to our customers. The tailored roof cover allows us to do what we do best and create custom fitting covers that eliminate fitting issues whilst providing a sleek and stylish design solution.
The roof cover will be tailored for your make and model, taking into account any aerials and roof furniture that you may have. We will also know the length of your awning and the unique shape and curvature of your caravan. The cover will be fitted into the awning channels on either side of the caravan and secured with full length zips on both sides. It will also be fastened around the steadies and A frame for extra security.
We have used the same Torrent material that we use on our full caravan covers ensuring they are waterproof, breathable and non abrasive and available in 3 colours grey, green and navy.
To fit the cover you simply put the awning strips into the channels on either side, secure the front with the A frame strap loosely around the A frame. With the back leg steady straps pull the cover over the roof. You will need ladders to do this which will also help with getting the cover up and over roof furniture.
Ladders will allow you to zip the cover up easily ensuring the backing fabric doesn't become caught in the zip. This can be completed within under 10mins and the cover is easy to handle due to being light weight.
Solar panel perspex openings can also be added at an additional cost of £75. We will require dimensions for the panel as even factory fit panels are not in the same location. Please note if your require the panel the cover cannot be used in the warmer months, the increase in temperature heats the Perspex which when cooled, cracks.
If you would like a solar panel adding please select from the drop down, then complete the form you can find here . The form can then be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your production lead time will start once we have received all the additional dimensions required.
We are starting with a select range of caravans from 2019-2023 from the main manufacturers. These covers cannot be created from the original dimensions we have on file so each caravan must now be remeasured. This will of course take time to build our database and if your model isn't listed, please contact our customer service team to discuss.
Current production time is at 2 weeks
If we do not have a pattern you lead time will be approximately 4-6 weeks

Roof Cover fitting
Solar Panel Window
We can add in a Perspex window to the roof of your cover but we advise the cover should not be used in the summer months, on excessively hot, bright days the heat could make the Perspex brittle and crack when temperatures cool. There will be an additional charge of £75 and we will require measurements as even though they are factory fit it is not aways in the same place. Please complete dims sheet here.
How is the cover secured ?
The cover slots into the awning channels on either side of the caravan and is then zipped on.
You also have straps to secure around the steadies and A frame to ensure the cover is secure.
Why is it only available for newer caravans ?
To start with we have only completed a select range of 2021-2023 roof cover patterns. This will change over time as we obtain more CAD files and create our own 3D models.
We also need to gauge demand for the product with our customer base before investing more in acquiring patterns. If you can't see your caravan and its a 2020 model or newer please contact us.
A frame cut out
The roof cover is tailored and sits snugly around your A frame, you can also purchase a matching A frame cover separately that will secure to the A frame cut out.
Not suitable for towing
The roof cover is designed for storage use only and should not be used whilst towing your caravan.
Specialised Covers cannot be held responsible for cover misuse, the roof cover has not been designed to cope with the strains of travel or has allowances for the caravans running lights.
Is there an aerial allowance ?
As all the covers are tailored we will know the location of your aerial and will add an allowance in where required creating a small hump in the roof line of the cover.
Both zips are finished with a small webbing flap cover, to ensure the zips cannot open when exposed to the elements. This is the same method we use on our towing covers to keep the zips secure.
Roof Cover Storage Bag
Your roof cover will come with a storage bag allowing you to store the cover securely when not in use. We recommend storing the cover with the zips undone as when fully zipped the awning tape makes it hard to fold the cover due to its stiff nature.
Folding the cover before fitting
To aid fitting we recommend that the cover is folded over the A frame in a concertina way to allow the smooth fitting over the caravan. The cover will be packed in this way when you receive it with the zips undone and should be refolded in this way when the cover is returned to its bag. The zips are best undone as when attached to the cover it makes it harder to fold back into the bag due to the stiffness of the awning tape.
Roof cover fitting instructions
We have created a fitting guide and video to support when fitting the cover. Please read and watch the full content before attempting to fit your cover. Simply scan the QR code or click here to be taken to the your tube video.
Zip pull strap
To aid with pulling the zip along the roof line we have added a webbing strap to the zip pull which makes it easier to reach as you move it along the caravan.
A-Frame cover available separately
You can also purchase a matching A-Frame cover for £25 which can be velcroed onto the main section of the roof cover to ensure a secure fit. Available in navy, green and grey to match your roof cover.
Tailored Design in 3D
All our roof covers are designed in CAD from 3D models supplied by manufacturers or created by our team to ensure the best fit possible. This means we will have to repattern all caravans that we offer the roof cover for, and it will take some time to have a complete database. Call our team if your caravan is 2020 or newer and isnt listed.
Torrent Waterproof and Breathable
Why settle for just waterproof or just breathability when you can have both? Our caravan cover fabric is designed for you with the balance of both worlds in mind, as they are equally as important. Some covers on the market are water resistant and breathable, ours is waterproof and breathable!
Roof cover Awning tapeThe awning tape that secures the cover to the caravan will not fully fill the awning tape opening. This means our tape will be shorter than your awning length to allow you to be able to fit the cover. If the tape was the same length there would not be enough allowance for the cover to be fitted and you to get the end of the tape into the end opening.
Torrent non-abrasive material
Our Torrent material has a soft non-scratch backing that will not mark your vehicle. Always put your cover on a clean vehicle, this will make sure there is no dirt trapped between the cover and the vehicle, ensuring it will be pristine condition when you come to uncover it.
Roof cover Colour Choice
Choose from 3 colours – green, grey or navy with no additional charge. The colour is purely a preference thing and depending on the location the caravan is stored in.
Upgrade your Storage bag
All our covers come complete with their own storage bag but is you would like to upgrade to a larger bag with handles and zip access you can for an additional £35. The bag is 120cm long, 49cm wide and 38cm high with the zip running the full length of the bag. Simply select the upgrade from the drop down.

Morning Dew and condensation
At certain times of the year especially in autumn you will find that dew is laying on grass and caravans. This will still happen underneath your cover because your vehicle is a cold piece of metal. There’s no need to worry the cover isnt leaking, the dew will vaporise as the temperature rises and it will escape through your cover.

Frequently Asked Questions
No, these covers have been designed for storage only and are not suitable to be used for towing.
We are in the process of collecting more patterns but this is a long process and will take some time. We are unable to use the measurements we already have so every caravan has to be re-measured.
If your caravan isnt listed please call our team and we can add it to the pioritry list for measuring.
From a commercial point of view it isn't feasible to re-measure every caravan from past years so we have decided to start from 2021 and offer the cover for models 2021 onwards. We will also only measure caravans we see a demand for once the product is launched.
If your caravan isn't listed please call our team and we can add it to the pioritry list for measuring.
The cover is secured into the awning channels on both sides of the caravan. This ensures the cover will not come away from the caravan and follows the contour of your specific model. The top section is then zipped into both awning channels the full length of the caravan.
The cover is both waterproof and breathable ensuring dirt and water won't go through to your caravan, keeping the roof as clean as when you covered it. We use the same material used in our full storage covers so you can be confident in it's performance.
Yes we can add clear panels to the roof section for your solar panel however you will have to supply dimensions as no solar panel is in the same location. We do however recommend if you want to use the cover all year to not have one fitted. The Perspex panels are not suitable to be used over the warmer months as the increased temperature can cause them to crack.
Yes the perspex panels are an additional £75. PLEASE NOTE IF YOU HAVE A PERSPEX PANEL FITTED THE COVER MUST NOT BE USED IN THE WARMER MONTHS.
Click here for the Solar Panel dimension sheet and email completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org referencing your order number.
This could be an issue in the long term but is unlikley especially if the cover is only used through the autumn/winter months. The cover will reduce the amount of UV the roof is exposed too but the paint work will take years to show UV damage on the sides. This is a personal preference and depends if you feel the benefits of the roof cover out way those of the full storage cover.
We have designed the cover to support the easiest fitting method possible. We would recommend two people fit the cover and you will need ladders. Feeding the awning tape into the channels is quite simple whilst getting the roof section up and over the caravan is more challenging. We feel it is easy with ladders and the use of the leg steady strap to pull the cover over the roof. We have created a video for you to watch to get a better idea of the process and the whole fitting can be done in under 10 minutes.
It is essential to have the cover folded correctly over the A frame in a concertina style and that the zips are fully undone before fitting. This will allow for a smoother transition for the cover to go up and over the caravan.
Even though these covers use less fabric, sewing all the fixtures and components on to the roof cover is very time consuming and the additonal parts they require cost more than the fabric that has been removed. They also still need to go through the same processes and systems in our factory from design, cutting, QC and dispatch which all contirbute to the RRP. We felt that the specific benefitis for some customers was worth offering the product as an option in our range.
We will have a tailored pattern for your caravan so all roof furniture that is standard will be accommodated for. You will need to let us know you have an air con unit and the dimensions as these are not standard so we can add the correct allowances to accommdate for it.
We can only add allowances for air cons that are located in the roof lights, those located on the edge of the caravan cannot be covered with a roof cover. Click here for the air con dimension sheet and email completed form to email@example.com referencing your order number.
We can accomodate a bike rack into the roof cover however we will require you to supply the dimensions and photos to support. Click here for the bike rack dimension sheet and email completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org referencing your order number.
Our current lead time is 8-12 weeks for our roof covers due to patterns still being completed
