RV Insurance

Recreational Vehicles (RVs) are becoming increasingly popular. And why not? You can go where you want to go, without concern for whether there is an airport, train station or bus station. You are free of any schedules except your own. And you can travel to the remotest areas or the biggest hot spots, as long as you can find a place to park your RV.

What qualifies as an RV? While many might think of the "house on wheels", RV insurance includes all types of recreational vehicles like your motor home, travel trailer, fifth wheel or medium duty tow vehicle.

Depending on the type of RV that you have, you will have differing insurance needs. If your RV is really your cottage on the road, you will need to have many of the same kind of coverages as you would on your residence. But you'll also need the kind of coverage that you require for your vehicle. This is where RV insurance can be a complex maze to sort through.

You may also need different insurance coverage for different parts of the year. Do you store your RV in the winter? Cancel driving-related or travelling-related coverages that are not required. Reduce your RV insurance to appropriate levels for storage conditions. When you are ready to travel again, increase the coverage appropriately.

RV insurance is usually obtained in one of two ways: as an add-on to your auto insurance or via a separate RV insurance carrier. However, you need to keep your unique requirements in mind:

  • Part-time use only
    Check for off-season discounts on the premium, if you only use your RV part time.
  • Living in your RV
    If you use your RV as your full-time residence, consider a "fulltimers" endorsement, which will cover propert...
