    Re my recent Saga insurance posting notice it seems only them so far that give unlimited

    Knowing an older RV windscreen cost £5000 and seeing my new vans is huge worries me and point me towards saga.........

    Plus just a flat tinted RV side window on my old RV cost over a grand.........

    Is yours a high enough limit to cover your windscreen?

    Is your new FFB a standard windscreen John, or a bespoke one?

    Unlimited with NFU.

    I checked before accepting the policy.

    Cheers

    Jock.

    P.S. John, I thought you were going to be in touch, :Smile:

    It may be worth undertaking further research,up to a few years ago Hymer and models associated with them used commercial screens. For instance my '93 B544 used a Mercedes 504 van screen installed upside down,still cost £1500.

    This shower http://www.frankpickles.co.uk/ quoted me £300 for windscreen cover.

    They just couldn't get it into their heads, that although it was Fiat based, the body conversion was nothing remotely like that of a Fiat van cab body and windscreen.
    When I advised them of the price quoted by Peter Hambilton (Britain's best independent Hymer engineer), they were astounded. I have to assume that their premiums are based on C class MHs, and don't take into account the large number of A Class MHs.

    Regards,

    Jock.

    Noticed my car policy limits their liability to only £95 if its replaced using a non approved installer (such as abroad). Fortunately I only use it for day trips.
