Recreational Vehicles (RVs) are a combination of a vehicle and a mobile home. To be certain that you have adequate insurance coverage, there are important considerations, which you should discuss with your agent at ALLConnecticut Insurance serving West Hartford, CT and the surrounding areas. You want to have adequate insurance for the RV and you also want to have insurance for its contents.
Insuring Your RV Against Loss from Accidents
Connecticut is an “at-fault” state. This means that the owner of an RV is responsible for the damages caused by an accident that is determined to be their fault. This includes needing liability coverage for property damage and the injuries or deaths of any people involved. In Connecticut, if the vehicle insurance limits do not cover the damage, you can be sued for the additional amount along with additional financial claims for pain and suffering.
Insuring Your RV Against Loss from Theft and Vandalism
Having adequate insurance for the contents of an RV is necessary to protect from the risks of theft and vandalism. This includes having protection if the RV is sometimes put into storage. If you have any high-value items that you take along with you, be sure to tell your insurance agent about them. For example, precious jewelry that is taken along to wear on a vacation trip needs to be itemized for proper insurance coverage.
Insuring Your RV Against Loss from Disasters
There are two types of disasters that you need to consider, which are natural disasters and those made by people. An RV needs to have adequate insurance against both. Floods, high winds, thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes, wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters can impact an RV depending on where it is located. Disasters caused by people, such as accidental fires, need to have protection as well.
Talk with your agent at ALLConnecticut Insurance in West Hartford, CT about these details for adequate RV insurance and ask them about emergency road assistance and special coverage for the cost of alternative accommodations if an RV cannot be occupied if it needs to be repaired while on a trip.
