There is an article in this month's What Motorhome that argues that insurance is much more expensive for left hand drive motorhomes than those that are right hand drive. How about some of our LHD owners let us know who they insure with and the sort of premium they pay with the details of their van and annual mileage? The article contains comments from Shield Total Insurance and Caravan Guard who argue LHD vans are used on the continent and therefore do higher mileages with higher attached risk. Most accidents are still accident rather than theft related and the time to get parts is critical when the insurer might be having to pay a daily charge whilst the van is out of use. They blather on about foreign manufacturers and thus getting parts from overseas is a problem. Most base vehicles are made overseas for goodness sake even if converted in the UK and the same goes for many equipment fitments like cookers, fridges, heaters, boilers etc. They also cite windscreen costs as an issue. Is this a load of codswallop or is there some truth in the matter?
