Why Fenwicks Overwintering should be top of your caravan’s Christmas list

Why Fenwicks Overwintering should be top of your caravan’s Christmas list

Whilst some caravan owners will be happy to do some winter touring, it's not for everyone. If you prefer to keep your caravan safely stored away during the winter months, you’ll need to carry out a few simple tasks to get it ready for the colder weather so that you can avoid problems at the start of next season. If you’re looking for an excuse to buy yourself something this Christmas, or want a great gift for your caravanning friends, Fenwicks Overwintering should be at the top of your list!

Let’s explore why this popular item is key to protecting your caravan in winter.

Suitable for all exterior surfaces

Fenwicks Overwintering is a protective coating that can be applied to the exterior surfaces of your touring caravan after cleaning. It’s always a good idea to clean your caravan at the end of the season, before you store it for the winter, as this helps to remove dirt, dust and debris from the exterior surfaces, helping to ensure that nothing remains to scratch or damage the surface. Once you’ve removed all the muck and grime, it’s time to apply the overwintering product.

The great thing about this product is that it can be applied to all of your exterior surfaces including plastic, aluminium, acrylic windows, glass, fibreglass, sealants and decals.

Eliminates the need to cover your caravan

One of the reasons why Fenwicks Overwintering is such a popular product is that it eliminates the need to cover your caravan during the winter months. Whether you are storing indoors or outdoors, it’s advisable to protect your caravan with an overwintering product like this because it actively repels water, dirt and algae. This means you can start the new season where you left off, with a grime free caravan that is easier to spring clean before you head off on your first adventure.

Affordable caravan winterising

Whilst there is plenty to consider when winterising your caravan - from cleaning products to covers and safe storage - it’s great to know that a product such as Fenwicks Overwintering is really affordable. At just £10.50 for 1 litre, which should last for up to 2 winters. The usage directions are to mix one part overwintering with 4 parts water, with half a litre (i.e half a bottle) of the product generally suitable to cover one caravan. You can apply using a garden spray, brush or sponge, making sure you cover all surfaces evenly and then leave to dry - which takes up to 3-4 hours.

Also perfect for motorhomes

This overwintering product is not only great for protecting your caravan in winter, but can also be used on motorhomes. You can follow the same usage instructions as for a caravan, and again one bottle should last up to two applications. Though, in prolonged winter conditions, you may need to reapply.
