Convenient, quirky, manoeuvrable and endlessly customisable – it’s no wonder that teardrop trailers have made a resurgence in recent years and can now be spotted on roads and campsites across the UK and beyond.
Whilst most car insurance policies will cover trailers and caravans when they’re being towed, once you stop and uncouple you could be leaving your trailer vulnerable to theft and damage. Trailer or caravan insurance isn't a legal requirement, but when the cost of replacing your caravan and its contents can run into thousands of pounds, Adrian Flux’s teardrop trailer insurance could help protect your caravan and your bank balance.
With their great ergonomic design and a little careful planning, micro caravans can sleep two people and hold a large amount of cargo, sometimes almost as much as a regular caravan. Often coming complete with kitchens, water outlets and batteries too, teardrop trailers can even end up carrying the same value of equipment as their bigger brothers.
It’s estimated that over 3,000 regular caravans are targeted for theft each year, and caravan crime is becoming an increasingly common problem. As well as stealing caravans, thieves also target the personal belongings stored in them, things which may not be covered by your standard home insurance, especially when the caravan is left unattended.
Bad weather over recent years has also led to an increase in caravans damaged by storms. If you are on holiday or attending an event in your caravan, storms could damage your property and leave you without a place to sleep – but teardrop trailer insurance can provide emergency accommodation expenses to find you somewhere warm and dry to spend the night.
Teardrop trailer insurance from Adrian Flux also provides:
Teardrop trailer or micro caravan insurance is also available as ‘new for old’ cover, meaning you can receive the cost of buying a new caravan, the same as your old one, if it is lost or stolen. For older caravans, insurance may be restricted to market value policies.
