Well in simple terms, a bonnet cover is a thin vinyl cover that fits over the bonnet of a van, or front end, to shield it from stones, chips and bug damage. It is designed to fit neatly, and ensure the greatest possible protection from damage to your van. However, there are various different styles of bonnets available. You can find them for vans, motorbikes, and motorhomes.

How To Choose the Best Bonnet Cover

A popular type of bonnet cover for vans is the soft top variety, which is often supplied with both the frame and the bonnet already fitted. This way you can be guaranteed full protection at an affordable price. This type of cover is very easy to fit, and is often made of high quality, resin lined plastic material. This means that it offers a lot more protection than the mesh varieties that sometimes come supplied with your van.

If you are looking for something more customisable however, you can choose to buy your own bonnet. These tend to be made out of steel or aluminium, and offer you much greater flexibility in terms of design. The advantage of these covers is that they are more challenging to fit, but as long as you follow the instructions carefully and stick to the dimensions given you should have no problem fitting them yourself. You can save money by having the frame of the van customised first, before the bonnet. There are also companies who will do this for free if you buy their entire van accessory package, so consider this option if you have the funds!
