    Hi, a question to Funsters who tow a car,.......whaich insurance co do you use for car ins ? Reason for asking is that I've contacted a couple of brokers for quotes, which go fine UNTIL I mention that its going to be towed behind my Mh (on a proper braked tow frame).......as soon as this fact is mentioned they don't seem to be able to quote me a price, which seems daft, as I need to sort insurance out to be legal (for when car is being used as a car.......as opposed to a trailer on back of Mh)

    Thanks

    I use the NFU and have all my vehicles on the same policy including the toad and motor home ... They seem to know what they are talking about,unlike so many other insurers.(y)

    even if car is fully comp when towed it is covered by your van insurance on 3rd party only [ like a trailer]

    I had heard anecdotally that the NFU give full coverage. Please can someone confirm? Thanks

    Yes , I did insure mine with NFU , quite expensive but car is covered comprehensively whilst under tow. Check for yourself before accepting quote though.
    I am now insured with AA who also confirm comprehensive cover under tow .
