We took out insurance on our vehicle with NFU in December 2017. I don't know how big the RV's are but, as I said, our vehicle is 7.5 tonnes.

Thanks for everyone's replies,armed with this information I rang back and asked the young lady to recheck.
I have just had a reply from her and the reason is my car isn't insured with them! Talk about blackmail.
I'll stay with Safeguard
Thanks again, you can rely on funsters for information

Now it's odd you should say that.
They increased the premium on my RV by 50% and when I asked why I was told they don't want RVs, New custom won't be taken and existing customers will be penalised....I'm sure @Geo will remember it as I'm sure he posted a thread.
I had my car insured with them at the same time and BOTH were due renewal.
Because of the increase I told them not to renew the RV but to renew the car.....
No, sorry...we won't renew just the car, no explanation just a simple no.
This was at the Scarborough branch.
I went to Safeguard instead.

It'll be because they no longer cover your area/postcode. Wouldn't quote on my new car.

I went to the Telford NFU branch this week for a quote on a 2013 High-top Volkswagen (my avatar). The renewal figure that I had from AXA seemed high at over £400 but the offering from the NFU was 50% higher!

There was an aside comment that they couldn't do any better because we didn't have any other business with them.

I guess the NFU don't want any type of motor home business.

Agreed.
I went with them as at the time they were considerably cheaper than anyone else and covered the car as a trailer when hitched at a fixed £1000 value....same as any trailer, excluding caravans and livestock trailers.

NFU have just refused auto quote on our motorhome because it is over 3.5t has anyone else come across t his issue?
Hi Jim

They quoted us OK on the Flair but yes the problem was Croatia and Morocco, we talked about more expensive vans and they would look at it if we had other stuff covered with them.

Have you tried the Chichester branch? We bought our Concorde from Southdowns 2 months ago and they told us that branch of the NFU specialise in larger vehicles. We had no problem getting cover with them. It's true that comprehensive cover isn't extended to Croatia or Morocco but we're happy with to stay with them.

No problem with our new 5t Hymer but we also had 2 high performance cars with them I must say very competetive.
We did have a new windscreen for one car @ £2500 only paid £70 excess.

Steve, did you arrange separate breakdown recovery, as I was told they will not recover over 3.5T?

Indeed I do John, IMO they went from a 5* insurer
to a couldn't care less cowboy outfit almost over night, no warning at all, no explanation just said no thanks when you asked where your renewal quote was

At the moment Ken we are using the Fiat one as it is free for 3 years then we will use Green Flag about £100 as they will pull you off a field if stuck.
