Cost of use                

None. Cost of minor, non-insurance repairs to any damage, punctures etc. are the responsibility of the person/scout group using the trailer. If repairs are required to be carried out under the insurance, the user at the time the damage occurred will be liable to pay the excess.

Insurance

District insurance covers the trailer at all times, i.e. whilst attached and detached from a vehicle. It does not provide Liability cover for the trailer, i.e. if, whilst attached to a vehicle it swings out and hits a third party vehicle, the damage to the trailer will be insured by the policy but damage to the third party is not.

Contents are not covered at any time.

Towing                        

The ability to tow a caravan or trailer depends on the driving license you hold*. The category entitlement on your driving license will determine the size and weight of trailer you can tow. The trailer capacity of 2000 kg will normally exceed the permitted towing weight for most vehicles; therefore beware of overloading. Vehicle manufacturers normally recommend a maximum towing weight appropriate to their vehicle.

If you are carrying passengers in your car whilst towing, this affects the maximum towing weight.
