Can anyone help us with this little problem:

We have a VW caravelle 2001 TDI and find it hard to get anyone to insure it because they cant decide if its a car or a van..(It does only have 7 seats!)

The company we are currently with will not insure me on it until I have been driving for a year. (We have no problems adding me to the insurance on a 1.6 KA...which goes a lot faster than the VW tank!)

Has anyone had any experience of trying to insure this kind of vehicle?

Basically I want to be able to drive it to cruising events but we are struggling to find insurance..any ideas?
