Recommendations for 5th wheel Insurance Coverage

Recommended Posts

If you are going full time, then you don’t just want RV insurance you want full timers insurance.  This is RV insurance with additional liability coverages like on a home owners policy.  I personally am not a full timer, so I have standard RV insurance.  I, however, carry a lot of stuff in my RV so I did adjust some coverage higher (like personal property) to compensate.  An RV is a big investment and you want to make sure it is covered properly.

I went through Miller Insurance for my needs.  They are a broker that specializes in the RV market.  They know what to ask to make sure you get the coverage you want/need.  They then shop around to find you the best policy to meet those needs.  I got a policy with National General through them.

There are several other RV specific brokers out there that are also well thought of on this forum, but I don’t have there names in front of me to list here.  I’m sure someone will come along and list them soon.

We are picking up our new 5th wheel in 2 weeks.  

If you mean brand new rather than *new-to-you,* then you will definitely want total loss replacement coverage.  This coverage will buy you a brand new, equivalent, RV in case of total loss within the first 5 model years (check on this with any insurance company you're talking with...we ran into a case with one insurance company whose total loss replacement coverage was only for an 18-month period).  Thereafter, they'll pay you the amount you purchased your rig for.  Without this coverage, all you'd get in the case of a total loss would be market value which is considerably less.

As mentioned, if you are going to fulltime in your rig, you'll need fulltimers insurance.  Otherwise, rv-specific insurance will do.

If you are full timing take the advise of the full timers here.We are long Timers and use Progressive for all our Vehicle needs. We are satisfied with the service.

I am back with Progressive as Blue Sky no longer insures 5th wheels.  My rate and coverage are comparable.
