No matter how big or small the project may be, make sure you’re protected with self-build campervan insurance from Carole Nash.

A campervan is much more than just somewhere to sleep when you’re away from home. It represents freedom and the ability to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life whenever you wish. Whether you’re investing your time transforming a vintage model into a modern-day delight, or taking a completely blank shell and turning it into a home away from home, make sure you’re covered for every eventuality with campervan conversion insurance.

With every model different to the next, it’s important that before you begin your project you have a policy in place. Don’t let your hard work go to waste if something goes wrong before you’ve completed your conversion.

Laid-up cover

Laid-up campervan conversion insurance covers fire, theft and accidental damage. Unlike comprehensive policies, this level of protection does not cover usage on the road. It simply covers you while you are restoring, converting or keeping your pride and joy stored.

  • Damage or loss sustained when your camper is being driven by someone who does not possess the appropriate licence
  • Loss or damage to any vehicle, caravan or trailer being towed or attached to your campervan
  • Loss of value; wear and tear; mechanical, electrical or computer failures; breakdowns or breakages

These are just some of the circumstances which may invalidate your self-build campervan insurance. For a full list of exclusions, please refer to your policy documents.
