I have read numerous articles on this forum regarding Caravan covers and Tiger marks Three years ago I got a Protec cover specific to our van and for Two years I have used it with no problem but this year which was a very windy type of Winter I noticed that it had left marks on the roof of the van which had previously never happened so I first went to work with Autoglym Super resin polish which didn't even touch the marks.This morning I decided to try again with it being one of my days off so knowing how good Silky cream is I tried that nothing I had my van cleaned by a professional cleaner who has been mentioned on here when I first got it it looked fine for a while then marks appeared on the gas locker they were like dull stripes they came back and re -did it but couldn't get rid of the marks so I did a bit of reading on the internet where people mentioned Meguiars Oxidation remover no 49 which I bought and it removed the dull stripes no problem so I went to work with the meguiars and I am almost free from Tiger stripes and can only praise the product I worked it with a damp cloth and then buffed it up and it cleaned the windows a treat aswell. sorry for going on so much but I hope this might help someone else who has the same problem. Enjoy the weather and the rest of the camping season.

I bought a cover for our previous van (Coachman) and it was an awful pain to fit or remove. The maker's ad, of course, said how weather deteriorated an unprotected caravan. Later talking to Coachman customer services on another matter, I happened to mention use of a cover to one of their managers. He said he wouldn't bother - caravans are designed to weather outdoors.

We need to balance buying accessories with thought s about their usefulness.
Example: we once camped (on grass) adjacent to a fellow who had a Milenco jockey wheel pad. I asked him why, and he said to prevent it sinking into the soft ground. So I asked him to explain how that could happen when he had four corner steadies firmly in place.
