Guys just a quick heads up if you tow a caravan or trailer.
With seat free 2 year breakdown cover will not cover your caravan or trailer if you need to be towed off the motor way.
I learned the hard way Sat as I got rear ended by a car and hit the caravan.
Also bent my tow bar into the bumper.
Hopefully it hasn't bent the rear chassis or could be a right off

Sorry to hear that Sparky13.
I was aware of fact that the Tarraco only is covered by the recovery cover. I dont know if you are aware, but if you join Green Flag through the Caravan and Motorhome club you get covered for the caravan as well if you need recovery of any sort.

Thanks mcsimmo
I was given false info from the dealership.
My own fault as should have read the small print.
Iv been looking at the caravan club one today and as a member looks just the ticket.
Car is going in next week so hopefully just a new tow bar and bumper.
Just so many bad drivers out there after lock down and forget how to drive I think.

Caravan was BER so luckily had new for old insurance so picking the brand new van in a few weeks.
