Insurance & where to get it

Postby Bookend » 09 Mar 2015 17:43

Who do you guys use for insurance?

Campton won't just insure the demountable :cry:

My pickup is covered on my company policy so I only need cover for the camper

I had the same problem, I ended up having to cancel my company insurance & getting a refund less admin charge. Then re-insuring the entire unit with Campton. It is now insured for 20k miles per year, split 12k for business & 8k private. The camper is then covered if it's on the truck or demounted on my driveway or on a site. It was pricey though, must be my postcode £850 fully comp :(

I'm hoping to find insurance just for the camper as my pickup is insured for free through our work policy.

You'll struggle, try the caravan & camping club.
Good luck, as I couldn't manage it :-(

Try Adrian flux. They did mine separately. The demountable cost a lot less than the truck although I don't remember the exact price

So a couple of times here its become a problem insuring a camper on a 'commercial' vehicle,
on a private pick-up its straightforward.

NFU have in the past offered cover although as their offers differ regionally it might need a few phone calls to track down an agent offering a policy.
Adrian Flux we've seen occasionally,

presumably meantime worst case I would imagine home cover could be increased to cover it on driveway, while you look around.

After many phone calls I have cover through the camping and caravan club club care policy.

They will only cover the demountable and not the pickup which is exactly what I wanted.

Everyone else would only cover both as a unit.

What did the C&CC charge for camper only if you dont mind me asking? They looked at me as if I was trying to insure the starship Enterprise when I enquired.
I still can only have private use on my Campton policy which is a real pain.

The camper was £413 which is equivalent to what we pay on our caravan. Our post code is not the best!!

It was a bit of a performance as the motorhome section said no they put me through to another section that said no. I told them to ask a supervisor who told the operator what to do and it's all sorted.

There cover is quite comprehensive and I think it's covered by the department that insure trailers and trailer tents.

Once I have the policy I'll post the details for reference.
