Action Awnings and Upholstery Center Expands Product Line

Mon Jul 18, 2016

Yuma, Arizona – Action Awnings and Upholstery Center in Yuma has expanded its product line to include new custom dash covers for Type B and C Rvs as well as for tow vehicles. This is in addition to the dash covers it manufactures for Type A motorhomes. Dash covers for Type A RVs are available in a variety of carpet colors, but for the Type C motorhome and tow vehicle, the company has added five different choices of material. Selections include: Poly Carpet, Plush Velour, Dash-Tex/Camouflage, Brushed Suede, and Sedona Suede.

Since dashboards are placed specifically under the windshield, they are presented to an everyday assault of daylight and UV rays. These rays can blur the dash, resulting in a dull or cracked dash. With the help of dash covers, the dashboard gets a solid shield against UV rays. Action Awning dashboard covers are made from a special material designed to protect a dash from this intense sun, according to a press release.

Custom dash covers may be ordered directly from the company website at www.rvdashcovers.com or by phone at 800-393-2169. All products have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
