What Does the Term “Recreational Vehicles” Refer to?

The term recreational vehicle or RV is an umbrella term used for campers, motorhomes, and travel trailers. There are 2 different kinds of RVs, those that are motorized and those that are towable. Motorized RVs are self-contained vehicles you drive and can stay or live in. Towable RVs are units that are towed behind a vehicle. Towable travel trailers, fifth wheels, truck campers, and tent trailers are included in this category.

What is RV Insurance or Motorhome Insurance?

Just like any other form of insurance, RV insurance plays an essential role in minimizing your risk and protecting you in the event of an accident. Because an RV is operated independently, you must carry an auto liability policy. However, RVs come with unique risks due to their size and value. They can range from $30,000 to over $200,000, and you'll want to ensure you can recover the costs in case of a loss. Moreover, RVs are larger vehicles that can cause significant damage and injuries to others or properties, making it crucial to have adequate coverage.

Is Motorhome Insurance Mandatory?

Motorhome insurance is mandatory because it is a vehicle. You can have a stand-alone insurance policy or add the motorhome to your auto insurance policy.

Do I need to Insure My Towed RV Trailer?

Travel trailers and towable RVs are not considered to be motorized vehicles, so they do not require their own auto insurance policy. The liability coverage from your auto insurance policy extends to the trailer while the trailer is attached to your vehicle. Depending on the value of your trailer, you may want to speak with your insurance broker about adding collision and comprehensive coverage to your auto policy.

*It is important to note that liability coverage does not extend from your auto policy if your trailer is unhooked from your vehicle. If you are looking to insure your trailer while unhooked from your vehicle, some insurance companies may require you to add the trailer to your home insurance policy as a vacation trailer. 

How Much Does RV Insurance Cost?

The cost of your RV insurance will depend on:

  • Class of RV. Class A RVs are often the costliest to insure, due to their high value.
  • RV usage
  • Your driving history
  • Any additional coverages you may choose to add to your RV insurance policy

RV Classes

Motorized RVs are typically categorized into 3 classes, Class A, Class B, and Class C. Class A RVs are typically the largest, ranging from 24 to 45 feet long. Class B is typically the smallest, ranging from 16-21 feet and Class C is typically the middle size between Class A and B, ranging from 21-36 feet.

Type A Coverage

This type of insurance is for recreational vehicles that you are driving to a destination. Type A coverage will offer you protection for emergency expenses, liability coverage, all perils, personal property protection, and depreciation waiver.

Type B Coverage

This kind of RV insurance is an add-on coverage that is for travel trailers, truck campers, tent trailers, and fifth-wheel trailers. This type of coverage adds comprehensive or collision coverage.
