30k's worth of Mercedes Sprinter (in white of course) towing 40k's worth of Fendt caravan and not an insurance certificate in sight.
We own an older (1996) Eldis caravan which has been great fun... Not that old that its embarrassing to tow but not that new that it matters if it gets the odd dent and scuff here or there. ( i accidentally drive our mini digger into the front of it last year... Doh! Would have hurt more if it was a nice shiny new one )
To over come the towing issue of caravan/boat we're going to use our crane lorry to tow Gwenn after craning a converted Potakabin onto the trucks bed. That way we can give the local tinkers a run for their money in the " look at us we're pikey's" stakes...:-)
