so its bound to leak even if its tarted up for sale

might well be another (unfortunate) first for you Gary can I ask who the insurer was at that point?


How it was stolen we'll never know. The police found truck tyre marks so who knows... It was business insurance so not relevant here.

Insurance for One off's/Prototype's/Self-Build's.

My De-Mountable was built by an unknown company or person, maybe a prototype, after 5 years i still don't know. It has always been insured as a load on the pick up on a part commercial/ part private policy. I never had to claim so will never know the truth about the load.

Having spent those five years using the original Mazda/De-mountable set up and doing 15k miles & very little to either bar routine services, the Mazda was replaced with the current Mitsubishi L200. Private, low mileage and exceptionally good all round condition, value £6k. A considerable wedge of cash was also spent on the De-Mountable as well, new legs, electrics, lockers, etc.

CAMPTON INSURANCE - I phoned and spoke at great length to Susan Pearl, Very helpful and knowledgble on De-Mountable's, basically to explain i didn't know the manufacturer. She refered it to the underwriters along with a comprehensive selection of photo's, inside & out, and my considered current 'Total Loss' replacement value, £8k (I refered her & the underwriters to the DCG For Sale thread for comparison, Thank you Richard) and they have offered insurance with no catches.

I'am Extremely pleased and impressed with the service i have received from Campton. They were also cheaper than my previous insurance company.
