How to Protect the front of your caravan whilst towing

Towing Covers

I have looked at different Towing Covers and there are different cost options available from the standard universal style to tailored bespoke covers and I have included the Amazon links within this article.

Front Panel Caravan Towing Covers are a great low cost solution to keeping the front panel of your caravan in great clean condition.

They are an effective barrier to the dead insects, mud splashes, stone chips, general road muck and grime, even water damage, which the front of any caravan is prone to when it’s being towed.

Fumes coming from your towcar’s exhaust can mark your caravan’s shiny white coachwork. Summer sun can also have a conditioning effect on your caravans bodywork.

Also towing covers can cut out any glare caused by the towing vehicles lights reflecting off the caravan’s front windows and the bodywork ,including the glare from the rear foglight.
