If I were a brand new RAC customer I could have bought the same cover it for £65 less online, but since I’ve been a member for 23 years on direct debit they clearly feel I’m not worth keeping and charge top dollar – like I say I’m disgusted with RAC.

Thats a very interesting point about the balance of costs of insurance versus maintenance and where the money is best spent. Even the best maintenance doesnt cover every eventuality though, accidents for example, hence I personally always prefered to also have cover with the peace of mind that I can call and help will come. But on balance over the years and taking into account my recent experiences I certainly would have been financially much better off not to have done that.

As for 10″ wheels, I’m certain you are right and perhaps I will indeed spend the money having the trailer modified rather than joining another insurance scheme.
