Insurance for older MHs getting more difficult?

Recently I have come across comments on difficult getting Insurance cover for older MHs


One comment referred specifically to Full-Time cover, which seems to be available only from Aviva as Underwriters, albeit through different brokers. The reported limit was no MHs over 10 years.


I personally have encountered difficulty with our 16 year MH in Poland, even with Allianz who are currently our Insurers on a UK policy, but will not insure over 12 years.






Would people please list any experiences they have had in obtaining cover based on age of the MH.


Thanks for replies.

12 plus had no problems with our last MH.
The Caravan Clubs (Red Pennant) overseas vehicle did go up by £100 or so at the 10 year point and the cash return was cut by 50% for spares.
We use the personal and vehicle cover.

Safeguard dropped mine after it became 20 years old (actually it might have been the breakdown cover) so I went to AIB who seem to be able to cover just about anything as they tailor the quote for you needs. As a "Fruitcake" Captain you get a discount (assuming you know the funny handshake and gesture).
raynipper and JanHank like this.
