Question about fulltiming insurance?


Recommended Posts

Hello, Will be retiring in a few months and have some questions about RV insurance.

The plan is to hit the road for a 2 to 3 years, will be buying a Motorhome. I have health Ins figured out.

I will be keeping my house and renting it out, its a duplex and my Daughter and family will be living in our side and I will be renting out the other. I will keep my domicile as my current address with Daughter handling any mail and what not. 

Do I need Fulltime RV insurance? Or will, I guess I'll call it regular RV insurance, be adequate? I realize I'll be "Fulltime" but I'll still have the sticks and bricks with that being my domicile I'm a little confused.

I'm not looking to necessarily save money, but I'm not opposed to it either :) I want to make sure I have the coverage needed.

Hi Linda,

Yes I will maintain the homeowners insurance on the duplex.

Then you probably only need part-timers insurance on the RV. Do read the fine print on your homeowners policy, though, to be sure it covers liability for anything that happens while you are on the road.

You still need to discuss this with your insurance agent. Most standard RV policies have some maximum number of nights that it can be occupied to be covered. In addition, this could void the liability coverage from your home owner's policy since it will not be you occupying the house. Only your agent can tell you for sure and I'd want his answer in writing just in case the worst should happen. Another thing about most fulltime policies is that they have greater coverage for personal possessions. If you just take the advice here you are taking a great deal of risk.

Thanks to both of you. I will speak to my Ins agent about my homeowners policy and find out what it does and does not cover as to my situation being on the road and not actually living in my home. The answers I get will determine my course of action as far as what type of RV insurance I will need. I will get it in writing. Thanks again!

Regular RV insurance covers your liability if you are in an accident. Fulltimers RV Insurance covers your liability when you are parked if someone slips and falls inside your RV, or getting in or out of it as well as covers your personal effects contained inside. Your homeowners may or may not cover you especially since you are renting your home to your child.
