    A lot seems to depend on your weight & size. Non now you know I meant your MH. :Rofl1:

    Seriously if your over 7.5 m and/or 3500kg then it can be a problem. Normal AA, RAC, Green Flag and Britannia all initially said they would offer cover but when pressed agreed that anything that size was not covered.

    RAC do scheme called arrival which also provides European cover. Has some advantages with a personal cover element and also covers any other vehicles in the household. But not cheap.

    Eventually settled on Comfort insurance and their breakdown cover (appears may be RAC arrival) again choice may depend on multiple vehicles if needed.

    Will no doubt find out later this year.

    I have RAC Arrival, it doesn`t cover multi vehicles as such, it is the driver, who is covered, and their passenger in any vehicle that they are driving or as a passenger, I can be in someone else's car and be covered. That is how the RAC guy explained it to me when I joined last year, I got it cheaper as a member of the C&CC.

    I have found them to be excellent when I have had to use them in the past.

    Thanks for this, seems like replating to 4000kg may have a downside.
    But iam sure there are plenty over 3500kg MH out there with cover, so more replies please.
