A motorhome cover provides you with a simple way of protecting your pride and joy from the harsh winter elements, as well as UV damage and bird droppings. It can also act as an extra line of defence against burglars, making it a fairly important buy to get right – so, how do you go about choosing the best motorhome cover?

That’s where the Practical Motorhome Awards 2023 come in; we’ve used our decades of collective experience to pick out the best cover for your motorhome, as well as the other close contenders.

The best motorhome cover is…

Protec Motorhome & Campervan Covers (Van Conversion/High Top)

Protec Motorhome & Campervan Covers

What we like:

  • It’s a robust, made-to-measure cover

The great thing about these Protec covers is they are bespoke products, made to order to your van’s specifications. That’s perfect for owners of van conversions or high tops, who might otherwise struggle to find a decent off-the-peg cover. The manufacturer claims the covers are 3.5 times more breathable than their nearest rivals and we’ve certainly heard that they have fewer condensation problems than many comparable products.

The robust material can withstand winter weather and bird droppings and will keep mould and mildew at bay. It’s a good package, too, with lots of extras included. Campervan covers come with the following features included: Easy-Fit system, A-frame/tow hitch cover, breathable storage bag and fitting poles. There’s also free delivery to anywhere in mainland UK.

Prices: Van Conversion/High Top Covers from £349 and Motorhome Covers from £445 at Protec

The other motorhome covers we recommend are:

What we like:

  • It provides a close fit and easy vehicle access

When you’re looking for a motorhome cover, you’ll want to make sure you find one that fits properly and will protect your vehicle. That’s where the Fiamma Cover Premium comes in.

Available in two different sizes and catering for motorhomes of up to 8m, this Fiamma will ensure your ‘van stays protected from UV-rays, sun, pollution and dirt.

The presence of air vents keeps ventilation high and prevents that irritating issue of pooling occurring under the canopy. You’ll also find you have no trouble accessing your motorhome when the cover is in place, thanks to three zip fasteners and Velcro on each side of the cover. Last year’s winner of the best motorhome cover also has plastic buckles that provide a solid locking system, while the reflective strips will make it easier to keep an eye on your vehicle as well.

Price: from around £350 at Fiamma

Specialised Motorhome Covers

What we like:

  • It’s tailored to your motorhome and can have extras fitted

Providing premium protection to your motorhome, Specialised motorhome covers are tailored to the make and model of your motorhome. Door access will be incredibly simple, courtesy of a Velcro strip, and the Torrent material promises a soft non-scratch backing.

The quality cover is also waterproof and breathable, with the option of customisable extras – such as adding solar panel perspex openings – and allowances for features such as bike racks and satellite dishes. The presence of pole pockets will also let you lift the cover over the van.

Price: from £499 at Specialised Covers

The 4-ply non-woven polypropylene fabric offers a tailored fit, thanks to its elasticated hem, while the water resistant material helps to protect your vehicle from weather damage, and lets rain and condensation easily evaporate away.

Fiamma Coverglas XL Windscreen Cover

Best motorhome windscreen cover

What we like: 

  • Good windscreen cover protection provided

The Coverglas XL Windscreen Cover has two really useful functions, not only offering protection from the sun and UV rays, but also giving you some privacy. As the cover is mounted via your motorhome’s doors, you don’t need to worry about it being stolen either.
