Price (sanity) check for RV (truck/trailer) insurance

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I have checked around and wanted to be sure the figure for full-time RV trailer and truck insurance (Bushnell, FL) is in the ball-park... it seems high but I'm getting pretty consistent figures so far, around $1800 per year for a 2016 Ford F150 and a 2018 Lance 21 ft trailer - good driver, no violations, clean record, own outright, one driver... Anybody think this is completely off base?

FL. is high on Insurance. I pay $1,616 a year on just my toad. MH is another $1,000 with GS discount.

Good driver, no violations, clean record, own outright, one driver

I checked with other company's and they are much higher.
Even the 15 minute one was 23% more on the toad. :(

Well if you shipped it around on the same coverages then that is what it is.  There are ALOT of factors that go into a premium cost.

It is very difficult for us to compare insurance premiums because the determination of such rates has become very complicated. Not only does it look at driving records, insurance claim history,  and things that we would expect, but they also consider many personal items such as one's credit history. The only way to be sure that you have a good comparison of rates is to get quotes from several different insurance companies.

The amount seems low for a full timer's insurance.  Does that include umbrella (liability) coverage?  Coverage for theft from the RV? From elsewhere?  Check this carefully.  Theft coverage is often very limited.  Insurance coverage often assumes you also have homeowner's coverage which includes adequate theft protection.  Many RV insurance companies just do not seem to understand the needs of a full timer.

Jim,

I'm not sure of whom you are asking this question. If it's me, yes - this is all-inclusive. I've had thorough conversations with USAA. They were very aware we had sold our home since it was also insured with them. From past experience (was insured with USAA when my first wife was killed in a traffic accident), there are no surprises with USAA, they held my hand through the entire process and pointed out things in my favor of which I wasn't aware. I could not have asked for better coverage or service during such a tough time.
