We also recommend using a storage cover if you and your motorhome are situated near the sea for long periods of time as the salt in the sea breze will damage the exterior.
What will happen if i dont have a motorhome cover?
By not protecting your motorhome with a cover you are allowing natures elements to gradually effect the appearence of your beloved motorhome. For example:
- Sunlight will fade the interior and exterior
- Over exposed to bad weather could lead to rusting
- Build up of leaves and dirt
- Risk of the inside getting damp and mouldy
- The windscreen and windows risk being scratched
Will it damage my motorhome?
NO, motorhome storage covers are specially designed to protect and preserve your motorhome/caravan. They have added features that give all the protection needed for your motorhome to withstand the British weather. For example, it has fleece lined panels to protect the windscreen and windows from getting scratched. The inside of the cover is a very soft and durable fabric that will not scratch your motorhome, whereas the outside is a strong canvas like material that is UV protected and waterproof.
