We specialise in custom made trailer covers to suit car transporters, plant trailers and recovery trucks. Whether you need to transport a single seat racing car or large van, a veteran car or mini digger, we can design and construct a frame and cover to suit. We have supplied over 400 covered trailers to most sectors of the automotive and contraction industry. Whatever your requirement we will come up with a solution.
Our trailer covers are designed to prevent 'flapping' when being towed and to reduce drag. The tailored fit of our covers to our own frame construction reduces pooling of water in inclement weather, and strain on the cover, prolonging its life.
Covers can come in a wide variety of colours and can be supplied with vinyl lettering & logos as required.
We specialise in trailer covers, we are not curstainside, awning or marquee company 'dabbling' on the side with trailer covers. We have been making trailer covers for more than 10 years and are motorsport enthusiasts ourselves and therefore, we know what works and what makes a good trailer cover. See our testimonials and gallery for examples of our work.
We also supply our own unique modular trailers, specifically designed to incorporate our GT Cover. We can find out more about them by clicking here.
How long does the cover take to fabricate?
We normally allow 12-15 working days to fabricate the frame and cover. Your trailer can be dropped with us in advance until your fabrication date arrives if it helps.
can i make my own frame?
We can fabricate a cover for any frame, however we recommend using our own frame as we have many years of experience of fitting our covers to our own frames. We do not offer a discount on price for someone providing their own frame.
what does the frame and cover weigh?
On a typical trailer around 4.5 - 5.0m long with an internal height of 1.7m the weight is around 130kg
can you fit to any trailer?
Yes, we will be able to find a solution for any trailer. Please give us a call if you have something specific in mind.
can you make a cover for a car transporter with a cab?
Yes, we have made a number of frames and covers for various models of car transporter - examples are in the photo gallery (and one on this page)
what colours are available for the covers
Our standard colours are; black, red, orange, yellow, green, royal blue, navy blue, grey, silver and white. Other colours can be sourced, please contact us for more information.
What materials do you use?
We generally use box steel for the frame, which is fabricated individually to fit your trailer and then primed and painted. The covers are made from high quality heavy duty woven PVC. We use weights of 580-610gsm which gives a good balance of weight and durability. We only use YKK zip sliders.
how long will the cover last and what maintenance is required
Some of our covers have been on trailers for upwards of 15 years and are still going strong. Regular washing with traffic film remover will keep the cover in good shape. Occasionally lubricate the zips and they will last longer. The shock cord (bungee) can pick up muck from the road in regular use but can be replaced easily and we maintain stock for immediate dispatch, the same goes for securing hooks. If the trailer is in very regular use, the zips can begin to wear out, but this is easily repaired and new zips can be added in a short space of time. Please contact us if you have any repair or refurbishment queries.
what other cover products are available
Many other product areas we have produced in the past are shown on the GT Covers website. We regularly fabricate; toolbox covers, sports ground covers and netting, trailer skirts, machinery covers, outdoor furniture covers amongst many other things. If you have a need to keep something dry, we can probably help! Please contact us with any queries.
can you apply our logo to you covers products
Vinyl logos work really well on our covers. Any local sign company should be able to make up and fit logos for you and we can have this done for you at our partner sign company, Starlite, in Newark. In most cases we cannot print logos to the PVC before or after fabrication due to the need to move the PVC through machines and welders, however in some exceptional cases this is possible. Please contact us for details.
