RV Insurance--What Kind of Coverage Do You Need?

103 1
Some people think that they can just skip getting RV insurance and put their recreational vehicle on their car insurance policy.
While in theory (and in reality) this may save you a little money on your premiums, only an RV insurance policy can give you the complete coverage your recreational vehicle requires.
It doesn't matter if you have a motorized RV or a towable; it can and should be covered by its own RV insurance policy.
A motorized RV is not simply a car, and a towable RV is not simply a trailer.
Both of them are also "home" to you when you are out on the road.
They have many features which cars and trailers do not have.
An RV insurance policy will cover things like your awnings, slide outs and refrigerator in the case of an accident, fire, theft or other damage.
Car insurance typically will not.
When you purchase RV insurance you should have mental or written list of those things in your RV that you want covered and then, you can shop for coverage which will protect you.
It is important to note that RV insurance is not the same as an RV warranty which covers break downs and malfunctions rather than accidents.
Look for these coverage options when you are shopping for RV insurance to insure the most complete policy: Total Loss Replacement: If your RV is totaled for any reason this coverage will provide you with a brand new comparable RV if you are the original owner and it is less than 5 years old.
If you bought used or if it is older than 5 years old, you will get a check for the purchase price to put towards an RV.
Personal Contents Coverage:This provides you the funds to replace items such as clothing, jewelry, cookware and kitchenware, etc.
Towing and Roadside Assistance Coverage: Covers the cost of towing the RV, locksmith services, fuel refill, and battery recharging.
Some policies cover this 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Emergency Expense Coverage:Covers your hotel, food, rental car and even airline ticket expenses if you need it.
Look for the best deal, but more importantly, look for the best RV coverage.
