    Hi All,

    I wanted a combined insurance and breakdown cover policy so I tried to get a quote from Comfort but have just been told that they can't/won't insurance it because the MoHo have six seats.

    Has anyone experience of this and are there any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    Is your uncertainty around the number of belts that you have? Or whether, in fact, Carole Nash are providing you with cover for your 6 belts?

    Nope, just trying to understand whether you were making a statement that would help the OP or whether you were expressing doubt about your own cover.

    I hope that’s clearer.

    @mfw I actually looked for a six berth and six travelling seats MoHo for a long time as I need at least five most of the time.
    @scotzsue It's an Japanese import and it's registered as a motorcaravan.


    Just called Adrian Flux and they quoted me over £500. I have now asked for a quote from NFU.

    Maybe it's the jap import that's the problem, did you ask them. Few of my mates bought them years ago and had problems insuring them. Carol Nash defo worth a call they beat my flux quote last year.

    I think the main issue with six seats is not with the Insurance, but more the breakdown/recovery side as many recovery trucks are not able to carry six passengers.

    They do not usually carry more than two here. They just leave all the others in the motor home on the recovery truck. :LOL:
