At first glance you might think covering a recreational vehicle (or RV) is just like getting ordinary auto insurance, but the freedom of the motorhome lifestyle brings a few extra potential headaches that make this specialized policy worthwhile.
For example, windshield coverage is a must in a camper, given both the significant costs of fitting such a large sheet of glass and the fact that you’ll often need a replacement from a specialized supplier.
RV insurance will often also include enhanced coverage for your personal possessions, meaning you can relax when taking those extra creature comforts and gadgets on a motorhome trip. Additionally, make sure to look for a camper insurance policy that covers theft as well as damage in a collision or fire.
While most insurance has limits on individual items, RV insurance policies often include a specific allowance for awnings and gas bottles, both of which can be particularly expensive to replace.
When considering motorhome or RV insurance, it’s worth looking for policies that offer rental cars and/or accommodation if your camper is put out of action during a trip, removing that extra worry.
