My Volvo assistance covers my trailer but the best cover you can get is a spare bearing set and a spare wheel

I use Green Flag. Their policy wording is:-

Vehicle means any vehicle which is owned by the Account holder and normally kept at Home provided it:
is either: a car, light van, motorised caravan, estate car, motorcycle or 4x4 off -road vehicle, which is privately registered in the United Kingdom.

carries no more than the number of persons recommended by the manufacturer (and for whom seats are provided) up to a maximum of 9 persons including the driver.

does not exceed (including any load carried) the following limits:

gross vehicle weight: 3.5 tonnes

external dimensions: 7 metres in length (excluding coupling device and tow bar), 3 metres in height and 2.3 metres in width.

is serviced, maintained and operated as recommended by the manufacturer and holds a current valid MOT certifi cate if applicable.

is a caravan or trailer of standard make that is fi tted with a standard 50mm tow ball, falls within the size and weight restrictions above and is being towed by another Vehicle that is owned by you and normally kept at Home at the time of the Incident. The weight of the caravan or trailer when loaded must not be more than the kerb weight of the vehicle towing it.

Seems to cover it.

(Never thought to check though until now - (thanks))

Make sure that your vehicle (as stated) is fully serviced at all times according to the manufacturers specification or you could end up paying the bill

I know of someone caught out by that when abroad, was VERY expensive not me though

Spoke to Caravan Club who wanted 46 membership and then recommended Mayday for the breakdown cover costing 62 to be towed anywhere in the UK = 108

Spoke to the RAC who said that our M&S car insurance which includes the RAC membership is not upgradable so I would need to take out new cover which will include RAC and Caravan Club membership to be towed anywhere in the UK for 106

Britannia will do it for 85 and still tow you anywhere in the UK but no Caravan club membership which I don't need anyway.

touch wood..not yet Peter.
My Landrover is out of warranty, so having the service gives me some peace of mind on both counts, 4 x 4 and trailer.

I also added 'comp' cover for my trailer to the car insurance, as its not usually covered- think it was 20, which based on how much we pay for trailers I thought was ok.
