Trailer Tent Insurance from just £90!

Do I need separate trailer tent insurance?

Car insurance policies usually cover trailer tents while they are being towed, but that cover will be limited to third party when you stop and uncouple. Once parked up, the trailer tent will be exposed, vulnerable to theft and damage – and without adequate cover.

While insurance for your trailer tent or folding caravan isn’t a legal necessity, it is highly desirable and, it could be money well spent in the event of a claim.

As well as the actual trailer tent, thieves can target the gear stowed inside – and these could be items not covered by standard home insurance.

Are there any trailer tent safety guidelines that I need to know?

  • The laden weight of your trailer tent and contents must be within the vehicle’s towing ability and not more than 85% of the car’s kerbside weight if the trailer tent has brakes – 50% if it hasn’t. (Depending on when you passed your driving test the towing allowance may differ. Check for the latest Department for Transport advice.)
  • Maximum trailer ten width in the UK and EU is 2.55m.
  • Indicators, lights and brakes (where fitted) must work and the trailer tent must display the same number plate as the towing vehicle.
  • Trailer tent speed limits on UK roads are 60mph for motorways and dual carriageways and 50mph on single carriageway roads. Trailers tents cannot use the outside lane of a motorway.
