How to install your caravan cover
There are usually Six steps I take when covering my caravan and I’ll describe the steps below,
The very first thing you should probably do before installing your caravan cover is give the caravan itself a really good wash as if you've been on the road for a bit it will be a little grubby, this helps in two ways, when it’s clean it makes it easier to fit the caravan cover and secondly there is less chance of mould and mildew build up for the existing dirt that would of been built up if you hadn't cleaned it.
Make shaw the caravan is completely dry before attempting to install the caravan cover, i usually just leave it out in the sun for a few hours and then get to it but obviously you could try and wipe it down but if you do it this way make sure it is full dry otherwise it will be very difficult to put the caravan cover on correctly.
It’ time to prep your caravan before you put the caravan cover on, most caravans obtrusive items such as tv aerials, air conditioners and vents be sure to wrap these things up in old carpet or sheets so that they don't get tangled when you're trying to pull the caravan cover over the top of the caravan, this is also the time to put the corner padding on to the caravan if they have been included in with your new caravan cover.
Unfold the caravan cover making sure the exterior side of the cover is facing the ground, be sure that no debris gets in the cover while your unfolding the caravan covers because it may scratch your caravan as you pull it over. Make sure the “front” end of the cover is facing the front of the caravan as you will be pulling the back over the to top fit it.
This usually takes two people, take the back of the van cover and pull it over the top of the caravan making sure there is no debris in the caravan cover, to assist in bring the cover over the top of the caravan you may want to use a couple of tent poles to give that little bit of height that is required to get the cover over the roof of the caravan without stretching too much.
Once the caravan cover is completely over the top of the caravan make sure it is pulled down evenly around the caravan itself, this is where having elasticated hems comes in handy as it makes the caravan cover fit much more snugly.
Using the straps provided secure the caravan cover under the caravan so that the wind wont get under it and flap around, some caravan covers provide ropes to give the front and back of the van a more secure fit so if your cover has them be sure to tighten them also, once this has been done you're good to go.
