Expedition Trailer Insurance



Having recently bought this, I now need to insure it and the usual suspects of Caravan Guard, C&CC and the now C&MC won't touch it.

My next step is to call Adrian Flux (my car insurer) and A-Plan (site sponsor) but, before i do, wondered if any of you with your own-build trailers or perhaps unusual imported caravans have any others to consider?

I don't have detailed knowledge apart form one of my clients is putting together an overlander insurance package covering modded vehicles, trailers, travel, recovery etc..

Have you tried someone like the NFU Insurance?

You're right, Moo. It is just a caravan. But because it wasn't imported by a dealer and therefore doesn't have older NCC or newer CRiS numbers, they won't touch it.

Can't you CRIS register it first then? https://www.cris.co.uk/register-an-imported-caravan/
Not sure if this is suitable but might be worth a shot.

Thanks tayaste. Will give that a go.

Adrian Flux has quoted £146/year. Not so bad. Thumbs Up

Given it's value and use I might consider a tracker too

A-Plan won't insure a non-UK caravan so it looks like Adrian Flux.

I used NFU for mine as part of the 110 insurance. Told them how much it would be for a new one and they set a premium.
