    Hi Joe
    For what its worth you cant buy what don't exist, I think you have to Tell a few porkies, get the best cover you can with the best maximum cover for long stays abroad if you need that using a friends or family address, and then bugger orf for a 365 day holliday:Doh:

    Have you tried "Comfort" insurance, I;ve met several who use this company for full time insurance. I understand they are underwritten by Norwich Union. The web site is Sleep Number Bed: Select Comfort, 1-888-BED FOR U, Luxury Sheets, Adjustable Air Chamber Mattress, I think.

    We used NFU Mutual for the last three years, full timing, and been pleased with the service provided.

    Hope this helps

    The site address that appeared in my last post was not what I intended, so I got it wrong, sorry about that, but Comfort are worth contacting if you can find an add in one of the M/H mags

    JosBra,
    Nomads right on this.
    I'm in email contact with a guy off this mb who is fulltiming and his insurance is with Comfort. He pays £700 fully comp including breakdown, unlimited mileage, and 365 days on road use via a c/o address.

    The question is on rvfulltiming but not the answer. As far as i am aware there is no company that will ensure a Full Timer with no fixed abode.:Sad: If anyone knows different then please let us know as there are plenty that would buy it.

    Yes I read it. Maybe they (the company) could clafify the situation here.

    Comfort, will you insure fulltimers with no fixed abode? Be great if we could hear it from the horses mouth.

    I'm in personal email contact with him Jim though his online activity is limited according to where he is sited and available facilities etc.

    However he is with Comfort and uses a c/o address.

    I can give you his mb id if you would like to clarify with him personally?

    Yes that ties up with post two, in order to get cover you have to declare your NOT full timing just on an extended holiday
    what Fulltimers want is a proper bona fide Full timers cover and this product is not available as far as I know
    why its not available even at at extra cost is beyond meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee:Eeek:
    one of the reasons given I beieve was people without a uk address cant be insured simple as that
