Roadside Assistance and Break Down Cover
Is your caravan covered with your car breakdown cover?

Most of the UKs established Roadside Assistance (Car Break Down) companies now include cover or the option to include recovery of a towed caravan or trailer providing it is attached to the tow car or tow vehicle when it breaks down.
