We are ALMOST in the position to start looking for another van again...
Last time we had o e, we used camping and caravan club for our insurance and were very happy, it was cheap and we got 365 day foreign cover...
Does any one use them now? Are they still good price and ... do you know if they insure people in the Channel Islands as that's where we'll be registering the van....
Thanks in advance

Hi PatR and welcome to the forum.

As Woody responded to your similar request in your other thread, Burtsner has only recently raised the same question. We have all replied on his thread: "Motorhome insurance renewal time again..."  You will find his thread about ten below this one.

There, you will be able to review the golden harvest of forum members' responses. It is still a fresh and active thread so feel free to add your own remarks into it. There may be still more answers to come from members who have been asleep or else hiding in Greece or who are undergoing other curious but entirely legal pursuits.

By checking out that thread first, you will be helping us keep all our topics organised and save the confusion associated with duplicate threads occurring.  Happy hunting!

Don't worry about the double post. We would rather you post twice than not at all. - Join in when you can.....rather than being a lurker! 😊. We don't bite!

Let us know how your insurance research goes.

Well at the moment we are vanless.... we've had old vans most of our married life until a couple of years ago when we moved into this apartment and had nowhere safe or secure or close to park or store it. We had been fulltiming for the three or four years previously ...
we've missed a van so much, but have been saving up and reckon by the spring we will be able to start looking again...I e attached a pic of our last old girl, but we will be looking for something much smaller this time...

Wow, that's quite a size, almost a time zone on its own. Best of luck with your search, please let us know how you get on.

And continue to post on here, vanless doesn't mean you shouldn't remain a part of the clan.

Interesting van Pat. How long was it? I would have thought something that size would have had a double axle? You had quite an overhang at the back. It gave you lots of lovely space to live in though. Did you travel much when you were full timing, or were you usually in the same area of Spain?

She looked BIG from the photo. - Perfect for full timing in. Do you intend to full time again Pat, or will you use your apartment as you primary residence now, and just tour for holidays?

We plan to stay on the apartment now as I'm working here in Spain , ( teacher) but as my husband gets his pension at Christmas and we will be a little better off, we will take advantage of the lovely long holidays I get to travel again....
with a smaller van we will be able to see all the places we couldn't fit into before, we loved the old girl but a van that size limits you in lots of ways..
We are looking for a normal small coach built van that we can squeeze into all the beautiful medieval places in Europe...

Well that Sunstream looks great...and great to have you posting on here, too. You clearly have a wealth of knowledge about the subject and being currently without wheels matters not a fig on this site; all of the contributors here have gaps between motorhomes or else (like me) have a motorhome but have yet to use it!
