When is Recreational Vehicle Insurance Necessary?

For some it simply does not cross the mind that with the ownership of recreational vehicles there is a need for good insurance coverage. This kind of insurance is vital for owners of these types of recreational craft. If you have an RV, a boat, or a travel trailer, to name a few, recreational vehicle insurance is pretty much needed for the protection of you and your property as well as for others. This kind of coverage is usually more specialized than normal car insurance because the typical automobile liability coverage will not often meet what is needed in terms of protection. Good RV insurance coverage is needed for accidents, damage, theft and vandalism and from other forms of loss.

There are several kinds of policy options available for recreational vehicle insurance. Some cover for emergency expenses, such as expenses as a result of an accident or from a mechanical breakdown. Many might hesitate at first at investing in more comprehensive coverage, but if you ever really need it, you will quickly know what a bargain it turned out to be.

Those RV owners who might like to put their RV in one location for a longer extent of time would be wise to look into coverage called “vacation liability” (or campsite liability) insurance. These kinds of plans give helpful coverage when essentially living in a home on wheels while away on vacation. This kind of coverage can be likened in many respects to traditional homeowner’s insurance.

If one spends half a year or more out on the road or even feels that a regular house or apartment is unnecessary and decides to make their RV a home,  coverage exists for these specialized situations too, often referred to as “full-timer insurance.” This coverage has personal liability protection, coverage for medical treatments to third parties as a result of a non-moving vehicle accident, etc. There is also coverage for protecting belongings that are kept in storage facilities, and more. There is almost always some form of coverage to address almost any need or desire of the RV owner.
