Make & Model of Towcar / Toad

Caravan / Motorhome / Static (Make and model)

Year of manufacture (Caravan / Motorhome / Static)

  1. We have all heard the term in just about everything, Plumbing to Builder, Servicing workshop to Where to find a good Dentist. 'Word of Mouth' is probably the most important term for someone with a need and only want to use a trusted or recommended provider. That's why Engineer Aftercare Warranty, retail Caravan, Campervan and Motorhome warranty products not only directly to owners, but by working closely with trusted sites like Approved Workshop Scheme (AWS), CaravanTalk, Shield Total Insurance, ValetPRO cleaning & maintenance products, Phantom Tracking and others. Lets choose one example with the Approved Workshop Scheme. The AWS is the official body of caravan manufacturers, dealers and fixed/mobile workshops, they are the only ones who can fix your new van when you have a claim under the manufacturer warranty. You have to be 'Approved' to become a member, which means you have to show ability, experience and understanding of caravan and motorhome habitation sections, including Corgi gas requirements for safety. Your equipment must be officially calibrated and tested periodically for reliability and safety, so that you the owner can relax knowing an AWS workshop did your 'Hab' check or service and you can enjoy trouble free and safe holidays with your family. So, the next time you are considering buying your insurance or replacing a caravan warranty for peace of mind, see who your trusted source recommends, your friends, family or forum/members. Then decide. We at Engineer Aftercare Warranty wish all CaravanTalk members, be safe and well at this time. Martyn Raybould MD
  2. I have been checking costs for insurance and some are insisting I have tracker as van is stored on drive e.g. Caravanguard. As van is coming up to 5 years old the Swift manual says at this time the tracker unit must be replaced. Has anyone done this? What would costs be for instal, then there is ongoing yearly charges. Not sure if this is worth it to save on insurance costs or stay with CMC cover which is more expensive but doesn't have this stipulation. With CMC I also have to go for super cover to keep new for old over 5 years which also increases costs. Any thoughts TIA Andy.
  3. Hi. New member here. I wondered if anyone has experience of insuring a tourer as a business asset? I am am looking to buy a caravan through my business which I want to use to live in for 3 nights a week when I am away for work. Has anyone had any experience of insuring on this basis please as all of my enquiries have drawn a blank so far. Kind Regards craig
  4. I am desperately searching for an insurer that will cover my 1960 Otten Caravan. I have called numerous classic caravan insurers and even called a vintage caravan club who advised me to ask my home insurance. .. no luck there either. Please can somebody direct me to somebody that can help? Thanks in advance, Carinna.
  5. I also have a post running in the Bodywork forum at the moment, about some nasty damage to the side panel of my caravan, but this post is about Insurance. I have the Caravan Club standard 5C's policy and they have confirmed that I am covered, but Im wondering - if the caravan side needs reskinning and becomes an insurance write-off, is it technically possible to 'buy back' the damaged caravan after receiving the payout and have the side panel repaired, rather than replaced, in addition to replacing the other damged parts - battery box, wheel arch, etc? If the side panel is filled and sprayed, rather than reskinned, the repair would probably be noticeable when I eventually sell it, so wouldn't fetch a good price, but I would have been compensated by the insurance payout. Ive done quite a bit of work on it and got thru most of the usual repair niggles of a 9 year old caravan, so its otherwise in good condition. Im guessing I might be difficult to insure a write-off, but would I be right that my car insurance would cover me while towing the caravan, so I technically dont need Caravan Insurance, except for public liability? Thanks for looking!
  6. Hi, Just joined reducing myself. Been caravaning for 15 years with a variety of vans. Currently towing a Bailey Unicorn Valencia (2015) with my Hyundai Santa Fe (2016). Disastrous few days caravaning next Minehead this week. Fridge packed in (confirmed cooling unit failure) and seriously bent awning pole and damage to awning as the result of storms today in Bristol Channel. Is fridge failure and awning damage covered by caravan insurance? Left policey docs at home!
  7. We had hoped to tour the UK for a few months this summer, perhaps through to next year and having trouble getting car insurance with Admiral because we won't be able to give a permanent home address (we have sold and we are looking for a new bricks & mortar home!) or where the car will be parked each night. Any past experience would be really helpful or suggestions of insurance companies who understand the nature of touring.
  8. Any suggestions for insurance please? Small touring caravan. Thanks in advance Lesley
  9. Having just retired and wanting to spend our time touring the UK full time in our Buccaneer Commodore can anyone offer information as to which insurance providers will cover us for 365 days travelling. Everyone we have spoken to so far want to know where our caravan will be stored even though we have explained we intend to use the caravan all the time. Thanks
  10. Its finally arrived-I will be 70 in April! Got my new driving license already just cannot bring myself to cut my old paper license in two and send it to DVLA. Farewell 7. 5 ton trucks its 3500 kilos from now on. Even my motorbike license is now defunct-legs to weak. Read my bank Platinum account insurance details-over 70 entails a £50 surcharge! So thats £16 a month for the account plus £50 each The Wife is an older woman 71 that comes to £342 for a years cover! We both have existing medical conditions. Saga quoted £186 for a years cover-a considerable saving of £156 per annum. Is Saga a reputable company? Where do others get their travel insurance? Comments and advice welcome
  11. In Febuary I'm going away to the Middle East with work for 6 months and I'm putting my van in secure storage for the duration. The issue I've got is that as part of my insurance t&c's ive got to have my alarm and tracker active at all times. I'm pretty sure that the 110amp battery will run out of juice within a couple of months without being charged, so I'm thinking about getting a solar panel to keep the battery on trickle charge. My question is what wattage solar panel would I need to keep the alarm and tracker charged. Went to have a look at some the other day and was advised that I'd need a high wattage solar panel which cost nearly £300! Would I not be able to manage with a lot lower wattage and cheaper option? Any advice will be appreciated 😊😊
  12. HI All, Has anybody had any experience with the above insurer? Any claims or dealings that were good or bad? We have just checked the usual insurers for a renewal due at the end of the month and they are significantly cheaper - especially when our current insurance decided to remove contents cover to bring the price down. . We did find this question previously posted on here already but the thread seems to have gone off on a tangent so I can see who doesn't use this insurer but loves the one they have Any feedback on this company would be fab! Google has shown its family run since 1950. . Thanks Mandy
  13. Hello Everyone I wondered if anybody else out there has suffered the same predicament as me? I have been asked by my employer to get touring caravan insurance - straight forward you say? However, the caravan is owned by the company and although it will be on a caravan site for 6 months, it will be used by an employee during this time as accommodation whilst working in the area and no insurers seem to be able to help! Can anybody reccommend an insurer?
  14. We've bought a caravan and intend to live in it over the next 3-4 years. We are going to use my mum's address as a permanent address, and we'll get on the electoral roll there etc, but we won't actually be staying there any of the time. How have people doing a similar thing gone about getting caravan insurance? Most policies say they do not cover if the caravan is being used as a 'permanent place of residence' but what does that actually mean? We are intending on staying in a small number of different places, each for say 6 months, but maybe longer. During this time, my husband will be working part time to support us. If we try to claim that our permanent residence is in Cornwall for example but one of us has a part time job in Yorkshire, will that pose a massive risk for us? Will/can insurance companies check your employment? Can they find out you have stayed at caravan sites all year round? Does it matter anyway, so long as we move caravan site from time to time? Basically, should we get normal caravan insurance and take a risk of the company not paying up or should we try to find a company that would insure us for living in the van? Our outfit is worth a lot of money so I really don't want to risk our money - I need to be extremely confident the insurance company would pay if our caravan is damaged /stolen etc. Does anyone know of any insurance companies that will cover us for what we want to do? Any help would be so much appreciated. Please pm me if you don't want to share your info publicly.
  15. A week ago I used the Towergate website to get a quote for my new Caravan, I purchased the policy and received a email confirming everything I printed the policy document and checked everything. ....happy days. Collected my new van on Saturday and took it to the storage site. This morning I phoned Towergate with a query, gave them the policy details and was then told the policy did not exist obviously I disputed this and asked them to investigate and call me back. An advisor called me back and again stated there was no live policy, I referred him to the email and docs I received but was again told they would have to take the details from me and set up a new policy. At this point I lost it as far as I was concerned I had collected a new caravan towed it 40 miles and placed it in storage effectively uninsured. .....after referring to a superior I was told if anything had happened they would have honoured my claim as there was evidence I had obtained a quote. ......don't believe that for a moment. So spent another 20 minutes confirming the details they already had and set up the policy on better terms than they originally quoted. So my advice to anyone getting insurance online be very careful I consider myself to be quite savvy when it comes to insurance and finance. ....... But what would have happened if I hadn't called them today ?

  18. Hi - Anyone out there able to give me a realistic view of annual cost I have on my list Storage - £300 Tracker - £150 annually ? Service - £150 Insurance - on a 6 berth 2009 valued around £13k ? no idea ? Those are the main things I can thing of . . but having never owned a caravan before I'd appreciate an owners perspective Thank you
  19. Hi, When I went to collect my caravan from storage in July, I noticed a 'ding' on the top of the side panel and also the awning rail directly below it. To cut a long story short, the culprit never reported it to the storage office, but has now been found 2 pitches down from ours with matching damage to their caravan. They have now admitted causing the damage and are phoning their insurance company to report the accident. I'm wondering if there is anyone else out there that has had a similar issue and how it played out. I'm not that keen on reporting this to my insurance company as it would count as a claim every year when I go to renew my insurance even although it was not my fault. Does anyone know if I can just claim on the other parties insurance and leave mine out of it, or have I got to report it to my insurance company and let them sort it out?
  20. Seeing as though ADAC will no longer take UK citizens as members for it's year round breakdown cover, we are in a bit of a quandary as where to go next. All the British companies we have looked at limit the stay abroad to a number of days, we are planning to be away for 11 months at a time over several years. We intend to set off next September and need to have the reassurance that we are covered in case of breakdown. Any thoughts?
  21. Hey guys, First post - just got bought myself a Swift Corniche 12/2 little tourer caravan. Have spoken to the DVLA and im good to tow it on my current licence (issued in 2001, B catagory) without any additional stuff. The next thing i need to find out about is the insurance. Whats the deal here? I know i can get caravan insurance to cover the contents and what not, but to actually hook it on to my car and tow it to places, do i need additional insurance above and beyond my normal car insurance? If so, who do you lot recommend in terms of cheap bog-standard cover? Thanks in advance! Jonny
  22. Our renewal notice came through this morning and was significantly higher than expected. We ran some quotes and the C&CC were still cheapest though at £200 less than our renewal. We saved the C&CC quote on their website. My wife called the club to discuss and they couldn't believe the difference either even after verifying our online quote. My wife asked whether we could just take up the quote directly via the web site and they said yes. So imagine our disgust at finding that they had increased the online quote that we'd saved to almost as much as the renewal figure! Running a new quote came back with the same figure - evidently some tampering has taken place and our reasonable quote has been 'adjusted'. With the price increase, their unreliable website (look out for you booking details changing after a couple of days) they may require assistance in removing my wheel wrench from somewhere delicate.
  23. Hi just a note to all who tow caravans using 4X4,s. I am at present in an argument with an insurance company over damage to my caravan and one thing I have learnt is that some insurance companies will not cover you if you use a long wheel base 4x4 to tow a caravan. So please please check if your company covers you. Two different caravan sales places I have asked did not know of this and are letting folk buy and tow away caravans possibley not covered by insurance. I only learnt this from the insurance companies damage assessor. Be warned and take care. Peter
  24. We'll be away for five month in Spain over winter and out daughter, who lives a mile and a half away, will be calling in every other day to water plants, check post, etc. .. I want to renew my house and contents insurance before heading off, however, both the companies that I've so far approched (AVIVA and Saga) have indicated that five months absence (even with out daughter visiting so often) is too long and declining to insure. Anyone else met with this, and if so, what's the solution? Eric
