T4 Post Icon Hello

Hello all, totally newbie to the camper scene. Iv been thinking about taking the plunge and getting a camper since a friend of mine over at cotton campers brought his first van to work a couple of years ago. Anyway whilst on holiday in Spain recently I saw a few campers about and said to myself sod it the cars going when I got back . So car sold I'm picking a tidy Swb T4 up at the weekend (will post pics at weekend). I have had an insurance quote today and was quite shocked at the price 650 fully comp with missus on I'm 43 and 7 years NCB. I was quite shocked at this apparently it's due to it still being classed as a commercial van as it's not converted yet. If any one could give me some advice on insurance I'd much appreciate it.

Cheers

Chris

Hello and welcome to the forum!

We're with A Plan insurance too. The link is in the traders section. We got a very good price and no time limit to do our conversion.

Thanks guys n girls, the quote was from A plan. I was told that when the van is fully converted to a camper then the insurance will be half the quoted amount. looks like I'll have to have a good shop around. May be I gave him the wrong info somehow but don't see how I could of. think ill drop them a pm and see if they can have another look at it.
