Whether you are viewing the rocky coastlines of New England, the fall foliage, or the snow-capped mountains, taking in the scenery from an RV, motorhome, or camper might be one of the most pleasant – and cost-effective – ways to travel. However, any given RV trip could come to an unpleasant finale if something happens to your RV along the way and you don’t have the appropriate RV insurance coverage in place.
From a collision with another vehicle or a deer, to inclement weather or your RV being stolen, there are many sudden and unexpected incidents that can happen while you’re on the road. Whether an accident is your fault or not, without comprehensive recreational vehicle insurance in place, you could be faced with paying significant out-of-pocket expenses to cover any related costs.
Just like Massachusetts car owners, if you are an RV operator in the commonwealth, you are required to carry a minimum amount of RV insurance. But, that doesn’t mean you should be comfortable going on your next road trip with just this basic level of coverage. It’s critical to make sure that your policy has been designed to provide you with ample financial protection for:
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists provides coverage for you, your family members, and passengers should you be injured in an accident with a driver of a vehicle with either low or no auto insurance coverage.
- Collision should help you pay to repair or replace your RV, minus your policy’s deductible, if it is damaged in an accident with another vehicle or object, such as a fence or tree.
- Comprehensive should cover losses to your vehicle caused by fire, theft, vandalism, flood, or another noncollision incident, such as a run-in with an animal, minus your policy’s deductible.
- Liability should help protect you and any covered drivers for damages, injuries, legal fees, or judgments that you are responsible for after an at-fault accident.
- Total Loss Replacement should pay you the value of a brand-new RV of the same make and model, minus your policy’s deductible, if your vehicle is declared a total loss or stolen. Certain limits may apply based on the age of your vehicle.
- Campsite (or Vacation) Liability should provide financial protection if someone other than a family member is hurt at your campsite where your RV is parked.
- Towing and Roadside Assistance should cover some or all of the costs of towing you from the scene of a crash if your RV is disabled.
In addition to carefully considering all of these insurance options for your RV, you may also want to get protection for any personal belongings or equipment on board, as well as any attached accessories, such as awnings and satellite dishes.
The type and amount of coverage you need will depend on a variety of factors, including the class of your motorhome, where you will be traveling, whether you have custom features on your RV, and more.
