In 1983, Classic Accessories was founded in a small basement in Seattle's Roosevelt neighborhood when our intrepid founder, Jacob Engelstein, saw an opportunity to create automotive accessories like seat belt pads, steering wheel covers and fuzzy dice. Pretty humble beginnings. We were making all of these smaller covers when it hit us: why not make covers for the whole car? This was a big step for us as a company. Because if you can cover a car, why not a boat? Or an RV? Or even a grill? Very heady stuff.
In all seriousness, Classic has come a long way over the past 30 years. We have steadily increased our investments in design and product development to the point that we are making the most innovative, benefit-rich and handsome covers on the market today. We have expanded to cover cars, RVs, motorcycles, scooters, patio furniture, grills, boats, PWCs, snowmobiles, power equipment, generators, ATVs, side by sides, golf carts, and more. We even make inflatable pontoon boats.
We’re also about more than just protection. We know that covering your vehicles and equipment is really about your lifestyle; about your time spent outdoors hunting, camping, grilling or whatever it is you do. We want to help you make that time as amazing as possible. We are passionate about the outdoors like you are and think through the features that will make our accessories the most useful, convenient and practical. We added zippered fuel tank access to watercraft covers so you could refuel without taking the cover off. We added dark material to the bottom of our patio furniture covers to better hide those inevitable stains. We used parachute material on our RV covers to make them lighter and easier to store. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
