    Friends of ours have a 1996 Houldsworth Minuet panel van and are wondering about insurance, European cover and breakdown cover for next year when the van will be 15 years old. At present they are insured with Saga and Europ Assistance but this will end next year due to the van's age.

    Has anyone any experience of insuring an older van please? :Smile:

    Hi,
    Got mine (1989 Hymer) insured through the camping and caravan club includes home and abroad breakdown cover.
    Might be worth a look
