iT'S not Stolen. RELAX...

Take a deap breath ... and thanks for the concern.

I need to insure it and all the belongings so if you ever DO see that topic heading at least there will be a new one on the way.

Someone mentioned an insurance policy that covered stuff at your campsite being covered while your fishing, and I think that's the policy for me.

Can you point me in the right direction.

Please.

Thanks iMusty

And once again...

Sorry about the "catchy" Topic heading. George Patterson, Clemenger Harvey & DDB eat your heart out. lololol

Please somebody point him in the right direction. That sound like a great idea and one that we would love to hear about as well.

Although iMusty we have insured a lot of our stuff on home contents insurance. We are with the RACV and have the ability to cover stuff that we take away from home. If it is lost or stolen outside of home then it is still covered. You pay extra but when you consider the cost of some of your gear then it's worth it. We've left off basic stuff like tents etc - I'm yet to hear of somebody dismantling a tent and running off with it while the occupants are out tramping...

Im an RACV customer too, but I just spent 20 mins on hold while they work out whether they want the bus on their list or not.

It has a different donk & gearbox and no seats and they think it's toooo modified.

And 20 mins seems like 2 hours on hold. I get sick and tired of being told they value me and my business by a machine.

Wow, I've never had that experience with them. I phoned the other night to make a change (we too are up for renewal) and got through in about 10 mins. Maybe try phoning after five or when the roads are not wet and slippery...

This might be a bit from left field, but I keep hearing all those ads on the radio from Shannons insuring enthusiasts. Not sure it would cover your bus but it might be worth a shot, if they can't help then maybe they can point you in the right direction.

Goodluck.

Now there's an idea, a policy designed specifically for 4wd and camping enthusiasts. Wonder if the premiums would be higher or lower? But it could include other features like recovery etc and other accident coverage for very remote areas.

Anyone work for an insurance company?

iMusty,

Stop calling it a bus, and call it a motorhome.

It's not a campervan...

A campervan thingy has a fridge and an annex and beds and tele's and surtains and lino and a table and a sink & roof lining.

I have none of the above luxureies.

That's right ... no roof lining. Just roof batts. lololollolololol

KiwiAngler.

Thanks for that
I just rang them and they wont cover me either.

And the camping gear is only covered for up to $2,000 in an accident.

I wasn't trying to be a smart ****, what I meant was that for insurance purposes, you should call it a motor home (work in progress???), rather than a bus, to make absolutely clear to them it is NOT a vehicle for hire. "Bus" has very distinct connotations to the insurance ppl, no matter how flippantly you use the term.

I did not take offense.

And I did not see what you meant earlier, but now I do and it's clever. Thanks

IMO , iMusty , forget trying to cover the camping gear through your motor insurance. Do it through your house and contents.

Lot better cover and a lot easier to work with.

I have made a few claims under my Contents insurance for this.

I believe the standard rate for car theft is $500.

But the crooks want a deposit and an extra $500.

That's $1,000.??
