When I saw this after first taking out MHF insurance last year I queried it and I was told it is because the insurers database and MID do not have a correlation for motor homes and that everything is ok.
I saw this explanation on an internet site:
"It is not the insurer who use this code, but the Motor Insurer's Database, which is the company who hold all the data that the police use to check if a vehicle is insured.
Usually, when someone insures a car, the insurer will send the registration number off to the Motor Insurer's Database to show that it is insured, but as registration numbers can be keyed in wrong due to human error, they will also send the make and model of the vehicle. The Motor Insurer's Database will then check the registration number matches up with the make and model on their records, and if not, they will ask the insurer to contact their customer to make sure we have the correct registration number.
When we provide the make and model, we don't manually type it in as that would be time consuming. We have what we call an ABI code. Each model has it's own ABI code. However, the list shows the ABI codes for all standard cars, but not for specialist vehicles. If the vehicle is something unusual like a motor home, a black cab, a kit car, a rare vehicle, a vintage car etc, we do not have an ABI code, so we send off the registration number without the code. MID will then register the registration number as being insured, but for the make and model, it will show Dump code company use. It is nothing to worry about. It is just purely because there will always be vehicles that crop up that are not on the database and they have to enter something on their database for the make and model.

Google 'dump code company use' and you will get plenty of hits that explain it.
