towing jacket material

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I decided that I might have / need a towing cover but then found out that having spent £20K+ on a new van another £200+ needed to be spent on a specialist cover. Well been a typical yorkshireman (deep pockets and short arms) I thought Id have a go at making one!!

Im thinking of using neoprene as its easy to glue and stitch and with a plastic zip and clips for securing it I think it will cost about £40, I know cheap ones are only £20

or any one any idea where to buy the 4 ply waterproof material

What do you think, I’m mad or let you know how I get on??

 

regards

Dave

Neoprene should certainly provide protection. And I for one don’t think you’re mad if you’ve got the skills. I like making things instead of buying them wherever I can these days. More for the satisfaction than for money saving, by the time I’ve factored my time in, I’d normally be better off buying stuff and working a bit more.

You could have a look at Pennine Outdoor fabrics.  https://www.pennineoutdoor.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=neoprene   I brought some canvas  for repairs to a awning which had been visited by mice!  Good quality and service.
