  1. I stopped going to France back in 2016, when OH had his dialysis tube inserted. We could have still gone, but you have to plan ahead, and keep to your route. So we decided to stay in this country. And thinking about it, its so much cheaper. No holiday insurance, no ferry tickets and no kennel fees. Now I take my cat with me, and he's got to be one of the most travelled cat. Only place he's not been is Scotland. Personally, I'd like to see what he would make of Scottish mossies. Probably wreck the awning and/or caravan trying to catch them. I don't go out through
  2. Try Lifesure - they are a broker and experienced with most things. https://www.lifesure.co.uk/personal-insurance/static-caravan-insurance
  3. Hi all new here and new to caravans I’ve purchased my first caravan all happy days and excited, got it home then someone mentioned about a Chris check never knew what it was so did a check and it’s been recorded so tried calling today for no joy but to send an email. Email returned yep caravan is registered as stolen 15 year ago and insurance payed out etc Chris told me the date, crime number, insurance company and insurance policy number. And it said in the email to ring the insurance company up and discuss it with them. Spoke to a nice chap from the insurance company turns out due to the age
  4. Hi all some advice needed please. We’ve purchase our third caravan and at moment we store on a caravan site. We have used the same site for 5 years and it has suited us well...... except for one thing. Three vans three issues with damage whilst in store latest van delivered today and got a call from the site owner saying that when they inspected the vehicle after arrival and presumably after the delivery driver had left they discovered a small dent in the wall of the van just forward of the main door. Now I had instructed the dealers to ensure that photos were taken of the van once it had
  5. Hi. I have a wood burner in my static caravan but I’m needing an insurance company that will insure the static to include the burner. My current insurance company instasure will only insure my static Can anyone help
  6. thinking about caravan insurance, I have a dealer special of a bailey phoenix 640, which is no longer available. The nearest equivalent model is a phoenix plus Looking at it, it looks the same , however the dealer special had about £3000 worth of extra's for about £300 which the phoenix plus hasn't got. Looking at the next model up would be the Bailey Brindisi, it's an 8ft model but it has the combi heating , which I would want although the bed is transverse, which I would put up with. I was talking to the dealer and he said that the phoenix plus is the equivalent now for the insurance purpo
  7. Problem with bad reviews on the internet is usually only people with faults post them and the majority of people do not have problems so you know there is a good chance of buying a good caravan. Bad reviews are not allowed on this forum so if a member wanted to know if a particular manufacturer should be avoided and they came here, everything would look rosy. 4 years ago I am sure most would not have expected Lunar to fail and spares not be available to make a future repair not possible. I have every sympathy for alibabaxx, they bought a caravan they liked, they should not expect manufacturing
  8. Accepting that you didn't want to PX your van, you are now in the unfortunate position where the van you have is in need of an expensive repair. One which should be covered by warranty and/or legal rights. The manufacturer no longer exists so your only redress is BH through the loan protection provided by law. You borrowed £17000 from them and have repaid £10000 so you still owe them £7000 (plus interest) From your point of view you have paid a total of £12000 and should have a 4 year old caravan in good condition to show for it. If that were the case you would be
  9. Our caravan was stolen and insurance company said we didn’t meet the security requirements so refused to pay . We now have a new caravan do I have to disclose the previous claim
  10. As a recent owner of my first caravan I'm looking for insurance. Caravan Guard quoted £95 (2004 Swift Lifestyle) but if I joined The Camping and Caravanning Club at £41 their insurance is only about £70 so in real terms I get membership for £20. But are they worth it? Are the membership benefits real benefits or a con? The reason I ask is I a few years ago I was told I receive a 20% discount from Jewsons. I got a price from Jewsons for some fencing and then presented them with my discount card assuming I'd get a further 20% off. "The 20% discount has already been discou
  11. Also A member of both, use mainly CL/CS sites choosing based on location, have used both clubs main sites occasionally as well as commercial sites. Have my Caravan insurance thought CCC. If you look into the discounts offered by retailers etc they differ from both but can often save you more than the subscription per year. Hope you enjoy you caravan.
  12. This has always wound me up with Insurance. Whether it be for a new or older Caravan or a Car, they ask what the market value is, when insuring. I make a point of asking them to tell me what the value is. They are the ones with all the glass's guides and god knows what other means of finding values. They will without any doubt use these in the event of any claim to try and show you were "under insured for the value". My point is, this is their field of expertise. I am not a Van or Car trader, so how would I know what the market values are. Always seemed a strange way for the insuran
  13. Hi all . Just a quick update to this thread . 1st thanks to all those that have commented/messaged/replied... all was greatly appreciated. The van is still with the dealers and has not yet had all the repairs done .. apparently all that is outstanding is the fridge .. the most important/most ridiculous fault of all .. " waiting for parts" " no idea when it will be sorted" . We have now paid 2 payments of the small finance amount and have had the van in our actual possession for about 18 days since August 11th . It has been in the dealers workshop since 28th/29th August. It has become t
  14. Insure your caravan for a defined market value. If it's a total loss take the money from the insurance company and start again with a caravan of your own choosing.
  15. Understand the need for accurate info' on weights e.t.c. and outfit matching but what about:- 1) Are there any insurance limitations/restrictions? 2) We had a towbar fitted by a " big name" but no advice was given on nose weight limits. Surely it would make sense for this to be mandated. 3) Has anyone had good advice from their caravan dealer on this...just a thought.
  16. The real point is that the seller can only sell you his right to the property and if it is stolen then he has no rights in it and the caravan still belongs to the original owner or their insurer. If you write off the caravan or have it stolen then the insurer will almost certainly do a CRiS check and the problem arise. At that point the insurer will ask what you have lost, nothing, as you did not own it or have any right to it. I am not sure if Police doing road side checks do CRiS checks but if they did one on your caravan you would again be stuck. Without the vin number you cannot insur
  17. 1. Some insurance companies specify weight restrictions, many don't. You need to check your policy as the definitions can vary. 2. There are a number of different noseweight limits. The car manufacturer will specify one, the caravan manufacturer will specify one for the hitch and the towbar manufacturer will state one for their assembly. The lowest of those three is the one you work to and really it's up to the driver to work out which is applicable as, again, it can vary depending on the towcar, towbar and caravan involved 3. Some caravan dealers try and fulfil their duty of care to
  18. Some insurers want the trailer weight to not be more than the car kerb weight. This weight is not the trailer max but its actual weight when being towed. Same with Green Flag breakdown insurance. You need to inform the insurer the car has a tow bar since this is considered a modification, the policy cost will not increase but it stops them declining a claim. The tow bar and tow ball should have stickers on them with limits. The car hand book should have its towing weights. The caravan hand book should have its nose weight limits. You then have to use the lowest values from these as
  19. When we got our caravan new from the dealer I am sure the CRiS certificate came direct from CRiS with nothing from the dealer. It took some time to arrive though. It would have been the dealer who registered it with CRiS. I think the CRiS certificate for our part ex caravan was given to the dealer for them to sort out but this was 9 years ago so I can not remember the details. In your case possibly the dealer who sold the caravan never registered the change with CRiS but you would think whoever sold it to the dealer would have let CRiS know or if it was stolen CRiS would have been told. The pr
  20. Hi all, Our personal & Motoring EU Travel Insurance is now due again in a week. Last year we went ahead with an Annual Intana Policy via CCC at £320 for the year mainly because the Red Pennant had stopped their annual Policy = ££'s. We multi trip abroad with up to 89 days at a stretch in EU with Caravan & also without on package trips (normally & hopefully). I realise RP is superior cover. Have heard & read that CV19 exclusions are now all around etc. Anyone trawled the options recently and got any first hand views ? NB Am always irritated at the need to ta
  21. The CRiS "Certificate of Confirmation" raises more questions than answers it provides. If the details of the keeper are unconfirmed, then how can you tell if there is no outstanding finance, the caravan is not been written off by an insurance company, or worse, it is stolen property? Too many unanswered questions IMO and personally I would be extremely suspicious and probably now be looking elsewhere or a caravan. Regardless of how 'good' this caravan appears, my inclination would be to cancel the purchase and politely explain to the seller your reasons.
  22. Hi, Update : CCC / Intana have replied - they are not quoting or issuing any new Policies till further notice. Had thought they would continue even with conditions or at high premiums - not like Insurers to just stop as taking bets against risks is surely their business I thought . Green Flag (which I have for UK Motoring cover) will quote for European Motoring cover (Car&Caravan) at £90, for a one off up to 90 day trip. The Annual multi trip cover is about the same cost but limits to 90 days in EU max per year so no help to me. Now just need to start the minefield of Ann
  23. I'm assuming you bought privately otherwise a dealer should have checked CRiS. The insurance company advice follows standard industry practice that has existed for many years. They should confirm the decision in writing to you. If they have notified CRiS of change of ownership to you then CRiS should issued revised documents in your favour. This can take 6 to 8 weeks. If you've not received anything by then contact CRiS and the insurance company to progress things. The admin fees may seem a bit annoying but at least you have peace of mind, proof of ownership an
  24. Just go the renewal through for this year, its less than last year but........ There is a list of amendments to the policy and this one has me scratching my head I have yet to phone them to enquire exactly what you end up with if this occurred! Update - just on with the CMC Insurance team, asked the question and got a "that's a very good question, can I put you on hold whilst I ask the powers that be"!
