With five national parks, as well as national forests, national recreation areas, state parks and hundreds of private campgrounds and parks, Utah is an RV owner's paradise. Whether you use your RV only a few times a summer or you're a full-time road warrior, taking your RV wherever the road may lead, only a comprehensive RV insurance policy can protect your traveling vacation vehicle.
Before you search for RV insurance quotes, however, there are several factors to consider.
According to the National Recreational Vehicle Association:
If your RV is driven rather than towed, UT state law requires you to carry minimum liability insurance on it. State law also requires RVs and motorhomes to undergo safety inspections and registration before they can be legally driven on public streets and highways.
It is always a good idea to check with your local Department of Motor Vehicles to find out which laws and requirements apply to your particular RV.
It's also important to remember that the minimum requirements may not be adequate coverage to protect you from accidents or injuries caused by the operation of your RV.
If UT requires you to register your RV, motorhome or camper, chances are that insurance providers in the state have a policy just for you.
RVs are classified into two categories: motorhomes (motorized) and towables (towed behind the family car, van or pickup).
Types of towable RVs are folding camping trailers, expandable trailers, truck campers, conventional travel trailers and fifth-wheel travel trailers. Sports utility RVs (also sometimes called "toy haulers"), which feature a built-in garage for hauling cycles, ATVs or sports equipment, are available in both motorhomes and towable RVs.
Much like vehicle insurance, RV policy options include some familiar choices, including:
RV insurance also provides options unique to the vehicle and its uses, including:
Given the average cost of a typical RV, these vehicles are a considerable investment for most households. You not only want to cover your losses in the case of an accident, but you also want to protect your assets from being subject to a lawsuit should you be sued for damages.
As RVs are often far heavier than a typical passenger vehicle, accidents involving these larger vessels often cause significant damage that can cost thousands of dollars. Only a comprehensive RV insurance policy can help you recover quickly from a devastating accident.
Because there is such a wide variety of RVs on the road, with varying degrees of size and value, no two RV insurance quotes may look alike. Most insurance companies will take a number of factors into consideration when they calculate your quote, including:
For example, a Class A RV insurance policy may be quoted at around $2,000 a year or more, while a Class B insurance policy quote may be less than $1,000 a year.
