    Hi Everyone,

    I came across your site whilst looking for help with a 34 foot Safari Pathmaker, I need to find some insurance for it and as usual I am fighting through all the comparison sites filling in the same information and getting to end waiting with eager anticipation for my quote.

    Only to find that either it's engine is too big at 5900cc or they can't find it on their database or they won't insure it because it's left hand drive etc etc etc.

    So if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great as I want to go travelling with my better half :BigGrin: and our 4 Great Danes :RollEyes:
    & 1 St Bernard.

    Thanks
    Sue

    Good morning and welcome Sue, my RV is insured with Safeguard who although not the cheapest give complete cover and include a comprehensive rescue service here and on the continent.
    It may be worth you looking at our sister site www.rvoc.co.uk which is dedicated to RV owners

    Good luck :thumb: Larry

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    try Camptons they insure RVs, motorhomes, 5th wheels and travel trailers

    http://www.campton.co.uk/pages.aspx?pn=MotorCaravanScheme.

    mhfs sister site rvoc is dedicated to american units

    http://www.rvoc.co.uk/

    you could also ask on there, it has a wealth of knowledge for owners of american units and most of us are on both sites

    maggie

    by the way its a waste of time using internet enquiries for insurance, you need to phone the companies and speak to a person. I was looking at a pathfinder earlier in the year they are a nice rig

    I would Second Camptons. They will insure pretty much anything :BigGrin:

    They did my Bus pre conversion which was an Optare Metrorider with a 5.9 Litre engine on a private non PSV license

    Hi and welcome

    Hi and welcome from another St Bernard owner (or servant to her... Ezzie)

    We also own a Winnebago .. and have owned RV's for oer 20 years. There are several companies that cover RV's, I myself insure currently with Safeguard which has been mentioned by another member of the forum.. It can be more expensive, but it is what you get for the money...especiallyif you take the RV into Europe. I have also in the past insured via Adrian Flux based up in Kings Lynn in Norfolk who have placed my cover with many different companies such as Equity Red Star and Norwich Union. Safeguard use Alliance.. and Safeguard are part of the Swinton Group.

    As mention there is a dedicated American RV sub section called RVOC and a lot of the yank owners on the Motor Home Fun site belong to both. Just different sites owned by the same person.. JIM.

    The RVOC of course is pure yank.. where the MHF site is more general and they organise the meets we go to at the shows etc., But the RVOC do have there own meets within the MHF meets if you follow me... mainly due to size and parking up.

    Lots of us have dogs, as said I also have a St Bernard, called Ezzie.

    Anyway welcome to MHF

    All the best

    Bob, Sue and Ezzie the St Beranrd.

    Hi

    Hi Ezzie,

    We are trying out the Pathmaker first and my Dad wants a 39 foot Winnebago destination.

    Thank you for the friendly messages.

    The dogs are howling at the moon

    Thank you everyone for your warm welcome, yes it can get a tad noisy when you have 5 dogs weighing in at a minimum of 15 stone each.

    But heyho that's what life is all about.

    :Eeek:

    Hang on, is deaf dane Bramble's handle or is it Sue's (her mother)?

    And is it the Dane that's deaf or Sue, or Sue's husband, the dogs' dad?

    I am very confused and this post is becoming a dog's dinner ...... :Rofl1:


    Hi Sue!

    Oh doo keep up :-0

    Just to clarify Deaf Dane is Sue's handle, yes sometimes dad doesn't listen at all to Mum. 3 Danes are Deaf & 1 isn't.

    I pinched Mummy's computer & she will be so cross when she gets in and finds out I have been talking to you lot.

    Best get back on my couch before she notices.

    :sorry2:

    So is this a shaggy dog tail I wonder... like when someone does not pay on ebay they claim the child or dog hit the buy button:Sad:

    I am happy to be proved wrong, but have a feeling we are being had.

    It would appear that my very clever St Bernard has been playing with my Apple Mac again.

    Any comments made by her are solely her responsibilities,.

    Goddam I'm going to have to think of another lock-down password for my computer now.

    but she and them have migrated to RVOC

    Terry , she and them has migrated to RVOC.. being a yank.. but I do recommend that they spend the £15 to get membership to both forums.. of £10 to MHF if they want to join in with us or £10 on RVOC if they just want to be with the yanks..

    I would recommend the £15 joint membership.. it is great value.
