I talked and mailed them yesterday to see what they would come up with. The reply came within a few hours. Unfortunatly it's a bit too expensive in our opinion... At least for the whole vehicle. I presume that you can get them to insure a smaller sum (perhaps half or something) thus getting at least something back if things go bad...
