    Ripe Insurance Company

    Hi all, quick question. Has anyone used or had experience with this company, Ripe Insurance? They are quoting me quite a good price but, as we all know, low and cheap(ish) isnt always the best. Cheers, Rick.

    General advice on conversion valuation..

    Hi all, Can anyone provide some advice on how to value a conversion. I'm about to get my T6 converted and I want to confirm that, as a minimum, the value of the completed camper will be: Cost of van + cost of conversion. Is this generally the case?

    Shop Around for your insurance!

    I made the mistake of taking out a policy with Adrian Flux in the belief that I would get the very best deal from them because they “specialise” in camper van insurance. The policy was due to start effective from 1st Oct 2020 when the conversion will be complete. I foolishly didn’t even check...

    Insurance After A Ban

    I’ve just finished a six month ban under the totting up rules (minor speeding offences). My wife’s multi-vehicle policy now won’t touch me and nor will my camper insurers. I’ve had to pay over 2k on the car and I’m getting some proper ludicrous quotes on the van, despite me stating I’ll only...
