Love & Snow

We are finally starting to thaw out here after Winter decided to come and dump its season’s worth of snow on us. Every station you watched or listened to or read gave us the warnings. So much so that grocery stores in all of our neighborhoods quickly became social memes  after shoppers posted their photos of empty shelves and checkout lines rivaling holiday shopping before the first flake fell.

When it came, it didn’t stop for days. Luckily though we had peace of mind after we took the time to throw on our covers over our patios sets, grills and toys that get to sit out in some of the worst weather of the year.

After the last trip of Fall, my husband and I winterized our trailer and boy are we glad we did! *Fun Fact – since we wanted to give the trailer a final wash before putting the cover on, we used a leaf blower to get the majority of the water off and used soft rags to dry the rest. Worked like a charm! We recommend allowing any thing you are covering to air-dry.

Not long after, we found ourselves thankful we took the time to cover the trailer with our PermaPRO Travel Trailer Cover since 16+ inches of snow came along with ice, high winds and tree branches!

Our Art Director, Dorik Downing, had the same story with his backyard. There’s no question Dorik loves to grill and spend time in his backyard. His ceramic grill, tables and dining sets have our Madrona Patio Furniture Cover Collection on them:

Talk about peace of mind! Although it’s freezing cold, all of our favorite pieces are protected from harsh weather just like this!

Our forecasts are calling for more winter weather coming this way for the rest of February here in the great Northwest so we are extending our Love the Outdoors SALE until the end of the month. Take 25% OFF site-wide on classicaccessories.com no code needed!

Have a safe and warm President’s Day Weekend!

CYBER SALE!

It’s the day before all the sales hit.  You name it, it’s on sale in some cyber way or another. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sunday “Early Bird” Specials and into Cyber Monday.

There are plenty of websites popping up and into feeds whose sole purpose is finding the best deals for you. Are they following you too?! Do a quick search online right now and that perfect gift for this Christmas will show up all directions this side of Cyber Monday.

I’ll be honest, I don’t brave the crowds on Black Friday. I am not, nor have ever been, the sales-diva who maps out the deepest discounts with latte in hand waiting for her favorite store to open at 2 o’clock am.  I enjoy waking up AFTER the sun comes up on the Friday after Thanksgiving, call me crazy.

I remember the days with countless bags in your arms, shuffling through the mall from store to store … only to sit in traffic when what little patience you had left was spent on the lines to the cashier.

Cyber Sales are more my speed. I can’t complain that I do my shopping without running shoes these days, and from the comfort of my own home couch computer cell phone pace.

Shopping that looks like this? … Sign me up!

Comfort aside. The best thing about Cyber Shopping for me is TIME…

The time it gives me to do the things that matter. Take away the commutes, the walking down aisle after aisle or thumbing through hangers to find the right size for growing kids … the time I save is time I cherish.

We are all about TIME here at Classic Accessories. Time spent outdoors. It’s your time and your friend’s and family’s. To us, it’s also about much more than that.
Because it’s not just about the fishing boat; it’s years of father-son time on the river.
It’s not the RV; it’s a route to grandkids scattered all over North America.
It’s not the patio furniture; it’s time spent laughing and sharing stories
with family and friends.
It’s about protecting dreams, adventures and memories,
and all the irreplaceable experiences that make your belongings worth protecting.
That’s why we do what we do. And why we’re committed to doing it so well.


We are starting our Cyber Week Sale early this year. Today through November 28th.
30% OFF site-wide! So go ahead and put on those embarrassing cozy socks and pull up your browsers, the sales are waiting.

Here’s to Discovering More Time Outdoors with the ones you love this Holiday Season …
and every season – it’s kinda our thing.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from all of us at Classic Accessories.

Cover your Gear

Why Cover my Outdoor gear?

One question we often receive is: “why cover your outdoor gear?” It’s a good question, why should you cover a grill, boat, patio furniture, RV, car, etc.? For that matter, why should you cover patio furniture or anything really, in a dry climate? Will the rain cause some kind of damage to my gear; it’s meant to be outside, right?

Great reasons to protect your outdoor furniture, equipment, and gear with a cover. Covers:

  1. Protect from water damage
    Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities.This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Additionally, standing water and moisture can lead to mildewing.*

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  2. Keep out dust and debris
    Wind can blow dust, dirt, and debris against your gear, causing weathering and scuffing. Covers are a layer between your gear and the elements.
  3. Protect from damaging UV rays
    Direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of this light, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level.
  4. Prevent pests
    Animals and insects will make a home anywhere. Covers can’t fully prevent them from nesting in your furniture and gear, however they can deter the discovery of these hidden places by making it more difficult for critters to find their way in.
  5. Provide for savings
    All of these factors lead to you spending less time dealing with avoidable problems with the assets that enable your favorite outdoor activities. Investing in a cover can reduce your time and cost spent on maintenance/repair, likely reducing the frequency at which you need to replace your furniture, car, boat, RV, etc.
  6. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year.
  7. Maintain your yard’s aesthetics
    Covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your outdoor space.

We believe that covers are a great investment for the future of your outdoor gear. We love getting outside to enjoy our yards and nature with friends and family. That time together is a huge part of what people love about their patios, boats, RVs, and vehicles. Saving time not sweating the small stuff (like cleaning and avoidable deterioration) is a benefit that’s hard to talk down. Regardless of your cover use or disuse, we hope that you are able to find time to care for your gear so that it’s there when you really want to get out and enjoy the experience.

Golf Cart Enclosures and Covers

Why Cover A Golf Cart?

Jump to “How to Measure a Golf Cart for an Enclosure or Cover”

Aside from providing you increased comfort and increasing your ability to play a few rounds if there’s light rain (and no thunder, of course), golf cart enclosures and covers are a great way to avoid excessive dust buildup and keep pests out. They’re particularly fitting for golf carts that have to be stored outside.

Enclosures….

  1. Help limit exposure to the elements
    The main benefit of enclosures, is that they will provide some relief for the rider from dust, dirt, rain and wind.
  2. Prevent pests
    It cannot prevent certain critters from finding a way in, but a fully enclosed golf cart is more difficult for pests, such as spiders and bees to invade.

Covers…

  1. Help limit exposure to the elements
    Covers provide a layer of shielding between your cart and these elements when your cart is not in use. Wind can blow dust, dirt, and debris against your gear, causing weathering and scuffing. Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Standing water and moisture can lead to mildewing*

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  2. Provide protection from UV rays
    Direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level. This can be one way that golf cart seat covers are especially useful.
  3. Prevent pests
    Covers can make it more difficult for insects to find their way into the golf cart in the off season, as well as other unwanted rodents that would seek to nest in the equipment.
  4. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year due to reduced exposure to dirt, dust, and pollen. Pollen can increase the rate of deterioration for a golf carts and their seating, so a cover can help prolong the lifespan of your cart given its current exposure levels.
  5. Aesthetics
    Full coverage golf cart covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your yard, taking the noisy shapes within a golf cart and reducing it down to a single form. Golf cart seat covers can clean up a well-worn seat, or protect it from particular environmental elements (salt and sand at a beach, for example).

 


How to measure a Golf cart for an Enclosure or Cover

 

Measuring a golf cart for a cover or enclosure is fairly self-explanatory. The style of roof is partially determined by the seating arrangement of the cart, but please do measure by hand to be certain. Also, please take care while measuring the roof, from whichever direction you decide to measure it. Having a friend help can be useful.

UTV Covers, ATV Covers, and Snowmobile Covers

Why Cover UTVs, ATVs, or Snowmobiles?

Jump to “How to Measure UTVs, ATVs, and Snowmobiles for Covers”

Some days all you want to do is get out and go. Let nothing slow or deprive you of your adventure. Covers (applied post a good cleaning) keep your favorite alternative transportation in tip-top shape and ready for the next ride. Power Sport vehicle covers…

  1. Help protect your equipment from water damage
    Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Additionally, left unattended, standing water (and moisture) can lead to mildewing.* Covers keep a layer between your vehicle and the elements. Helping you forgo preventable refinishing or painting makes them a cost-effective way to maintain the aesthetics of your favorite equipment.

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  2. Keep out dust and debris
    If you keep your equipment outside, then you expose it to additional weathering. While not ideal for long-term storage without proper aeration, covers can limit the scuffing caused by wind-blown dust, dirt, and debris. Covers will also limit dust accumulation on a vehicle kept inside a garage.
  3. Provide protection from UV ray damage
    Again, applying to mostly outdoor equipment, direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level. Seat covers can be a good way to keep your occasionally empty passenger-side seat from losing its luster on a UTV.
  4. Prevent pests from nesting
    Rodents and other critters are known to burrow or make nests in unwanted places. Covers can make it more difficult for critters to find these nooks and wind up causing themselves or you injury (or from damaging your gear).
  5. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year by preventing the accumulation of dust and pollen.
  6. Aesthetics
    Covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your yard. Covers will only hide the accumulation of dirt and whatnot from your forays into the city and wilderness, they will not help your vehicle be cleaner inherently. It’s important to keep your gear in good condition, even in the off season and to clean it thoroughly after each use.

Getting the right cover for your power sport vehicle can be a challenge. There is a surprising variability to the size and shape of these vehicles that leaves the idea of a “universal fit” difficult to answer.

Boat Covers

Why Cover A Boat or Personal WaterCraft?

Includes: Boats, Pontoon Boats, Personal Watercraft, Paddle Boards, and Kayaks

Jump to “How to Measure Boats or Personal Watercraft for a Cover”

Covering your boat is very similar to covering your car. A cover is an investment in maintaining your favorite method to get-out-on-the-water-now. Boat covers help your vessel stay at its best when high-and-dry. If covering your boat seems questionable, The IBoat Forum may be a good place to go to, to read through the debate from the perspective of boat owners.

A boat cover…

  1. Deters theft
    According to SavvyBoater.com, the top three items stolen from boats are electronics, outboards, and outdrives. Something about an open boat can attract people to either steal something or climb up into your property. A boat cover helps keep things secure and off-limits.
  2. Protects against UV rays
    Direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. UV rays can damage a boat’s paint, finish, and seating (vinyl). Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage to these materials, increasing the longevity of your product (at its current exposure level).
    Note: DO NOT cover a new boat or a boat that has recently been painted. Color from a cover can transfer to the fiberglass of a boat if the boat is new. Please wait 4 weeks before using a cover to allow the boat to fully settle. There are a variety of fiberglass cleaners in the market that will remove the color deposits, if such occur. It takes time for the chemicals to fully settle into place. The boat should not be covered for at least 2 months following a paint job. If you used a lacquer-based paint, never use a cover, it will end badly.
  3. Keeps dust and debris at bay
    Wind can blow dust, dirt, and debris against your boat, potentially causing weathering and scuffing.
  4. Protects against minor dents and dings
    Again, this won’t save you from anything serious, but may help keep a brush against the boat from damaging the paint job.
  5. Provides a way to keep maintenance time down
    Covers take a bit of brunt of nature so that your boat doesn’t have to. They are especially useful for helping with preventable seat and motor wear & tear.
  6. Lessens cleaning time

    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year. Quicker to get out on the water and enjoy yourself!
  7. Protects from water damage
    Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Standing water and moisture can lead to mildewing.*
    Please always keep the bilge/boat drain plug open when you’re on land, to allow for proper drainage of your vessel. Covers can limit new accumulation, but few are truly waterproof and water from rain can accumulate in the bottom of the boat. Keeping your boat unplugged is the best way to prevent this.

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  8. Keeps critters away
    Rodents and other pests are known to seek refuge in nooks and other odd places. Covers can make it more difficult for critters to find and nest in such crevices.
  9. Maintains Yard Aesthetics
    Covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your outdoor space by simplifying shapes.

Important note: if you choose to trailer a trailerable boat cover (not all covers are made to be trailered), please ensure that your boat is clean prior to installing the cover. The trailering straps on a dirty boat can rub against your boat’s finish to an effect akin to sand paper (vibration between the strap and the boat with dirt, sand and salt particles caught between) causing marks on the boat’s surface. For long trips regularly check your boat to make sure it is secure and properly fastened as straps can come loose. Check out this Mastercraft forum for more.

Boat Motors

Boat motors are susceptible to UV rays too, causing chipping and cracks. Even if you don’t think a cover’s right for you, we think that it’s truly important to consider the upkeep of this element of your boat. Check out this video on boats.com to learn more about how to care for a boat motor. Motors may not be covered by our boat covers, due to the variability in size and location for motors. There are covers for outboard motors available on our site.


How to measure a Boat or Personal Watercraft for a cover

We recommend making this a two person job for safety’s-sake. While it is a time-consuming process, we recommend measuring these products by hand so that you know the actual physical dimensions of the vessel; manufacturers will often include auxiliary elements in the estimated length, depending on how the item it to be towed.

Garage and Lawn Equipment Covers

Why Cover Lawn and Garage Equipment?

Jump to “How to Measure Lawn and Garage Equipment for a Cover”

Some say that the perfect yard party starts with a perfect yard. That may be true, but it’s easier said than done. Your garage (and sometimes yard) likely has an assortment of equipment specially selected or required to fine tune the landscape to your needs. Each piece of equipment is an investment in the look and feel of your (outdoor) home. Covers keep it clean.

Lawn and Garage equipment covers…

  1. Maintain the appearance of your garage or yard
    Covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your equipment, no matter the amount of wear and tear they’ve seen.
  2. Protect your gear from water damage
    For people who keep  garage and tool items outdoors, or in locations that are exposed, a water resistant cover can help limit water accumulation directly on the product. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. It is important to note that while vents can help prevent the accumulation of moisture, they cannot prevent it entirely. If you plan to store anything under a cover, it is important to keep this in mind and allow your items to air out every so often to ensure they dry completely.
  3. Prevent pests
    Rodents and spiders are known to make a home in any available location, including gaps, crevices, and nooks in equipment. The animals, you, and your equipment can suffer as a result. Covers make it a bit harder for pests to make their way onto your equipment and in harm’s way.
  4. Keep out dust and debris
    Wind can blow dust, dirt, and debris against your gear, causing weathering and scuffing.
  5. Provide protection from UV rays
    Again, for people who keep equipment where it may be exposed, direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level.
  6. Reduce investments in cosmetic repairs
    Investing in a cover can reduce your time and cost spent on maintenance/repair, likely reducing the frequency at which you need to replace your equipment for reasons like UV damage.
  7. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year.

 

Why Cover a Bicycle

Bikes are a wonderful accessory to have. They make for great transportation and sport. If cleanliness is next to godliness, then the god of bikes may have a bike cover.

Covering a bicycle will:

  1. Deter thieves
    Covers deter thievery in bicycles, indoors and outdoors, because said hooligan(s) can’t just hop on a ride away into the night.
  2. Keep dust and grit from getting into the chains and/or gears
    This only applies to the bike while it’s in storage (apologies). Covers will only hide the accumulation of dirt and whatnot from your forays into the city and wilderness. Kidding aside, it’s important to keep your bike in good condition, even in the off season and to clean it thoroughly before using again.

Why cover a Log Rack

Log racks are standing by to help you have a great fire–indoors, outdoors in a fire pit, or on the grill. While these are very low maintenance items, they could use a little help from a cover to be that much more useful.

  1. Keep logs dry and away from moisture
    Like with a fire pit cover, the log rack cover helping limit direct exposure to water and moisture has the added bonus of making sure your wood is ready to roll when you’re ready for a fire. This won’t prevent a torrential downpour from getting to your wood, but an early dew should not be allowed to dampen spirits.

Why cover Trash and recycling

Covering your trash and recycling bins is a unique way to keep both products safe and undamaged. Oftentimes trash and recycling bins can crack or be damaged by regular wear and tear. However, we know most people don’t care about their bins that much. Additionally, there is a downside to these covers; they can’t be on when you have your bins out for collection, so they require some maintenance. The biggest benefit of these covers is simply that covering your trash or recycling bin:

  1. Enhances the aesthetic appearance of an otherwise unsightly item
    Covering is a way to up the aesthetics of two of the more unfortunate items you can’t eliminate from your yard.

Why cover a Snow Thrower

If stored outside, a snow thrower should be covered when not in use to protect against bird and tree droppings, rain, snow, and sun damage. Like other covers, this would ideally require some additional ventilation after extreme weather.

Indoors, a snow thrower should still be covered to avoid dust buildup in and on the machine.

Classic Accessories has a selection of covers for both single and double stage snow throwers.

RV Covers

Why Cover A RV?

Jump to “How to Measure a RV for a Cover”

RV’s are more than a box sitting in your driveway. They are exploration vehicles, the best way to get away, your home away from home. As such, they deserve more reverence than a box. They deserve a cover. RV covers….

  1. Provide protection from damaging UV rays
    UV rays can crack the paint and fade the finish on your RV
  2. Help keep nature out
    Sitting in your yard or driveway, your RV awaits its next adventure. Typically, RV’s will sit for several seasons waiting for spring to allow to time and weather to really travel. During this movement hiatus, your RV is exposed to all kinds of elements. After ensuring your RV is properly winterized, cleaned and dried, applying a cover helps keep dirt, pollen, leaves and water from directly hammering your RV. For additional cleaning tips, click here.
    Note: Due to the Gel Coat Finish on some RVs (especially fiberglass RVs), clouding may occur after extended use of a cover. If spotting or clouding appear after using a storage cover, clean and wax the vehicle to remove any trapped environmental pollutants like dirt and moisture.  To prevent reoccurrence, clean and apply a top quality wax between 2 and 4 times a year, depending on the level of exposure to the elements.
  3. Reduce cleaning time
    While you did spend the time cleaning the RV in the winterization process, covers will help speed up the spring clean immensely by limiting the dust, debris, pollen, and leaves that find their way onto your RV and sit.
  4. Help deter pests
    Rodents and other critters are known to burrow or make nests in your RV. While covers cannot totally prevent an invasion, and cannot prevent you from trapping animals in your RV, they do add a layer between the outside and your RV. This would, ideally make it more difficult for a mouse to find its way into your under-cabinet and under-bed storage areas to nest in the backup fishing gear and towels to make its winter home.
  5. Aesthetics
    For those with strict HOAs or less than perfect campers, covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your outdoor space.

Also consider other RV accessories to get similar benefits of reducing UV exposure to your steering wheel, dashboard, and tires. Our tire covers are available in a variety of sizes. if you have any questions, please reach out to one of our helpful Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-854-2315.


How to Measure a RV for a Cover

According to Lisa Zuroff, one of our customer service representatives, RV covers are a hot topic for customer support. Many of the questions they receive revolve around fit and how to measure. Here are three measurement tips for Classic Accessories RV Covers from our Customer Service Team:

  1. Height: Measure from the top of your RV to the ground. Do not include the air conditioning unit on the top of the RV in this measurement.
  2. Length: Measure bumper to bumper. Do not include the tongue and hitch in the measurement.
  3. Width: For teardrop or R-pod RVs, do not include tire guards in your width measurement.
    This will result in extra, loose fabric existing for your cover which will thus lack fit

Customer Service also recommends not using the manufacturer’s measurements, because the manufacturer will account for elements that are not part of the main body. This happens quite often for any trailer with a tongue and hitch as oftentimes the listed manufacturer’s measurements include them (because it’s part of what you are towing behind you). It is instead recommended to see what your measurements are by physically measuring the RV, which is not the easiest task. We highly recommend having a team (or at least partner) to help with the measuring process.
