Self-Build Campervan Insurance Specialists

Whether stripped out and self-built or converted from a van, your camper will require specialist cover to ensure that it’s legal for the road.  

Standard policies may not offer the right coverage, as your vehicle is personally customised and unique. If, according to your V5C form or the vehicle’s logbook, your converted campervan is no longer classified as a standard van, then you’ll need to arrange for the correct type of cover instead.  

 It’s essential, when selecting cover for your selfbuild or converted campervan, that your insurance protects the value of your vehicle and its unique modifications. Without this, you will risk being unlawful and causing costly damage to your custom ride.

SelfBuild Campervan Insurance FAQs

I’ve converted my campervan myself, what insurance do I need?

If your vehicle is self-converted or modified, you will need to confirm that your campervan or motorhome meets the basic DVLA criteria for reclassification in order for it to become road legal, and therefore insurable.   

Once you’ve confirmed the roadworthiness of your selfbuild campervan or motorhome, you will require specialist coverage to legally use it on the road.   

What if I’ve purchased a self-build campervan?

If you’ve recently purchased a selfbuild campervan or motorhome, then youll need to declare this when requesting a quote, as modifications will need to be considered as part of your road protection.  

Does self-build campervan insurance cost more?

No two policies are priced the same. When it comes to insuring your vehicle, generally the cost of insurance will depend on: 

  • Market rarity  
  • Driver’s driving history 
  • Condition 
  • Declared modifications  
  • Layers of protection: from third-party to comprehensive  

When it comes to securing the right level of protection for a self-build or converted campervan, quote retrievals will focus on the details of your vehicle – because every modification and conversion will have its different requirements.  

What modifications will affect my premiums?

When you declare modifications, it’s important to study which parts of your selfbuild campervan qualify. You’ll want reassurance that the correct layers of protection will secure the full value of your self-converted vehicle, so your premiums need to acknowledge the value of any changes that you’ve made.

Not all changes will affect your premiums. Exterior paint, or smaller cabin accessories are unlikely to affect this. But major mechanical alterations to a vehicle, such as changes in suspension, will need to be declared.  

Can you insure a van as a campervan?

The type of insurance required for your vehicle will depend on how its classified within its V5C form, or logbook. This will state if your campervan is no longer legally classified as a standard van and, instead, will require a specialist policy type.
