Forget Dolmen and Stuart, I called them both and they are also only brokers, one requires you to have any van converted by an SIMI garage and the other insists on 1.8m internal roof height even though it is not required in order to have a van re-classified by Revenue. The Caravan Club are also an intermediary for a broker whose policies are underwritten by Allianz Insurance. In order for them to give you a quote you must join the Caravan Club (70) and have the van certified by an engineer or SQI (suitably qualified individual) designated by the Club. Some choice huh? I tried all the insurance companies directly, even have my car insured with one, no good, you must deal with a broker. Oh and by the way, if you are under 25 then forget all about getting camper van insurance.

Question Re: New VRT Regulations

its a tough country to live in if you have any sort of hobby or ambition to own a nice van! east germany was never this bad, i was interrogated by the insurance company as to "why do you want a van"???? before i could get insurance. it all comes down to the fact that the companies might loose a few euro. rant over,for the moment,,,,,,

I know, between messing around with Revenue, trying to DOE and Tax the van and trying to get insurance has taken me nearly three months. I have a T5 shuttle and a T5 van as well and it is becoming a nightmare to try an insure them every year despite no claims and full NCB and for years.

I think the insurance companies a missing out on a lot of decent business as people who are into these vans tend to look after them.
