A recreational vehicle is a great way to see the United States. There is nothing better than knowing that you are taking your belongings with you to each and every location. No more unpacking and packing when you take your RV. It can save you time and it can save money over paying for a motel stay in each and every city that you stop in. They are both a home and a transportation vehicle, and need specialized insurance to ensure that your particular needs are addressed.
RV insurance takes pieces of both auto and homeowner’s insurance. They are a home on wheels and that means that they are covered when on the roads and when they are stationary in a campground. Also protected by the coverage are the personal belongings and valuables that you may have with you in the RV. Some policies can even cover your pets.
When you are driving down the road in your RV, the large size and weight of the vehicle can be a risk in itself. If you are at fault in an accident, then you could be liable for the damage you have caused to someone else’s property, as well as bodily injuries. Liability coverage is normally part of a typical RV policy. Comprehensive coverage is recommended as well, as it can be extremely expensive to repair damages to an RV.
The good news is that RV insurance coverage is normally very budget friendly and a policy can be suspended or reduced if you are not using it. RV insurance is a necessity for both the investment you have made in your recreational vehicle, as well as for any issues in which you may be found liable for property damage or bodily injuries. Consult your local insurance agent to determine the best coverage for you and for your particular needs.
