Caravan Insurance
 
I'm a bit lost on how I can insure my caravan in Switzerland.

I brought both car and caravan from Greece, went through the canton Police/vehicle inspection step with flying colors and I am ready to get new Bern license plates and return my Greek ones for destruction.
The last step is to have Swiss insurance. For the car it's straight forward, I have a couple of offers, I'll just select one.
What can I do for the caravan? I find no reference online how to insure it.

* When I say 'caravan' I mean the thing without an engine, a trailer-home, Wohnwagen.

Thanks for reading!

Replying to myself for future reference.
The caravan is insured for liability by the car. For anything extra (theft, fire, damage, etc) AXA was happy to give me an extra policy.

Really as in CH the caravan has a separate no plate, so separate liability insurance.

Nope. OP is correct. Liability is covered by the insurance of the vehicle pulling the trailer/caravan.

Regulations vary by country. OP, make sure you're also covered in the countries you intend to visit, if that's your plan. See here for a comprehensive overview for Europe (not available in English).

Apart from the insurance you should take a look at your license if it allows you to tow a caravan.
