Interesting point about width restriction, and whether it refers to the trailer fitting on the tow truck, or the max width including tubes.

I believe they will only recover the trailer if the towing vehicle breaks down - not if its the trailer. ,,,, I could be wrong but am sure this is what they said when I enquired yonks ago.
I am with Brittania like others and they definitely cover recovery of the trailer if it is that that breaks down

Green Flag every time, never let me down. Had the boat recovered after a wheel bearing let go on the A1. The difference between Green Flag & RAC/AA is that Green Flag mostly use contractors & they get paid by the mile, so it's in their best interest to take you home instead of buggering about sending a van & trying to get you going by the roadside & then realising an hour later that they need a recovery truck. Green Flag just pitch up with a truck & either take you home/destination or garage & you get to choose.

Thats why I took my cover out with them in the first place I think that it depends which type of cover you have taken out with them.

Did they tell you the restrictions on width and length
Green Flag and RAC have the same restrictions but by Joining the camping and caravan club or caravan club there is no limit on length as they cover the american motor camper vans

Yep like I said earlier read the small print size restrictions apply I have been in GF since the days they where the national breakdown never had any probs even sent my a wheel out to Spain where it took the AA 6 hours to move me 5 miles after sending various tech out to look at my problem even when I said it's not drivable muppets
