Recreation Insurance Myths

Do you own a recreational vehicle? If so, it’s important to make sure you have the right recreation insurance policy in place. Many people believe that their regular auto insurance policy will cover their RVs and other recreational vehicles, but this is not always the case. 

In fact, most standard policies don’t cover recreational vehicles. That’s why it’s important to research your options and find an insurance policy that meets your needs. In this blog post, we will debunk some of the most common recreation vehicle insurance myths.

Myth: All RVs are the same, so they all require the same insurance coverage.

There is a big difference between a Class A motorhome and a pop-up camper. The type of RV that you own will play a big role in determining the amount and type of coverage you need. For example, a Class A motorhome will typically require more coverage than a pop-up camper.

Myth: RV insurance is very expensive.

The cost of RV insurance varies depending on a number of factors, including the type and size of the RV you own, your driving record, where you live and more. However, there are plenty of ways to save on RV insurance. For example, if your home and auto policies are with the same provider, you may be able to get a discount. 

Myth: You don’t need RV insurance if you only use your RV for camping trips.

Even if you only use your RV for occasional camping trips, it’s still important to have the right insurance in place. If you’re in an accident or your RV is damaged or stolen, you could be left paying a high price without the proper coverage.

Myth: Your Auto or Home Insurance Policy covers your RV.

RVs require their own insurance policy. Your auto insurance policy can extend to your personal trailer, but once you unhitch and it is no longer connected to your vehicle, the coverage ends. Home insurance may provide some coverage while it is on your property, but it will not cover any damage that could happen while you travel. Only an RV insurance policy is able to provide full-time protection during travel and parked locations outside of your property.

Now that we’ve debunked some of the most common myths about recreation vehicle insurance, it’s time to start shopping for a policy that’s right for you. Make sure you’re getting the coverage you need to keep you and your family safe.
