Insurance for RV - Personal belonging ringCoverage for personal belongings

If you use a motor home for any length of time, you know the vehicle becomes your second home. You leave possessions inside, just as you do at home. Some of these may be valuable, such as jewelry. Others may have sentimental value, like photographs. Whatever it may be, these are items that you do not want to lose.

Typical car insurance companies don’t cover any of the possessions you leave in your vehicle, no matter what the value. You may have limited coverage through homeowners or renter’s insurance. On the other hand, a specialized company will cover the replacement value of items left inside your motor home.

Full replacement cost coverage

If something terrible happens and you total your recreational vehicle, or if it is stolen, car insurance companies will only reimburse you for its depreciated value. This means that during the first few years of ownership, if something bad happens, you lose money on your investment. Whether you have a small trailer or a luxury RV, it was a big investment and might cost you a lot to replace.

Specialized agencies recognize that you have invested a huge amount of money and time in your RV. If it needs replacement during the first few years of ownership, you may have the option to insure the full replacement value. The average auto insurance companies may cover you up to a certain amount, but usually will not be enough to replace your motorhome. Don’t lose money on your investment by not understanding all of your options for RV insurance; work with a specialist to see what choices you have to ensure full coverage.
