Unhappy Car on trailer insurance

We have now given up with A Frames and have or are going down the trailer route.
The question for all you trailer tuggers is;

Who insures you car whilst it is on the trailer? The motorhome insurer or the car insurer?

The motorhome insurer (Saga) tell me the trailer and car is covered for third party damage only and went on to say the car is covered by the car insurer against any damage whilst on the trailer (no third party involvement)

The car insurer (Saga Select) tell me the motorhome insurer should be responsible for any car damage as the 'lead vehicle'

No one ones to cover the car on the trailer!

What do you do?

Help please

Be seeing you! No. 6

We had our little car on a A frame and I was told Yes its insured but no-one would put it in writing So I now have a totally useless A frame and all the fittings It cost a small fortune but I never got peace of mind and just couldn't tow without worrying all the time
