Is it your home year-round or do you just use it for vacations?

Why Do I Need RV Insurance?
RV Insurance is like any other insurance, you are mitigating your risk to protect you in the case of an accident. For a RV or motorhome you are required to carry an auto liability policy because you can operate it as a vehicle independently.
However, there are some unique risks associated with an RV. Your RV is a large investment ranging from $30,000 to over $200,000 for a new motorhome. So, you want to ensure that you can recover the costs in the event of a loss. In addition, as they are larger vehicles and can cause significant damage and major injuries to others, other vehicles or properties. When getting an RV insurance quote, make sure it has enough coverage to protect you from potential unforeseen circumstances.
Can You Also Insure My Travel Trailer?
Your travel trailer is not a motor vehicle and therefore it does not require its own auto insurance policy. As long as your travel trailer is being towed by an insured vehicle, your travel trailer is considered road legal. Some insurers offer specialty travel trailer insurance policy to ensure you will receive coverage on the trailer no matter what its usage. Your property insurance typically covers the contents of your travel trailer but you should talk to your BIG broker to make sure that it covers everything you need it to or whether you should also have travel trailer insurance.
