What You Need to Know About RV Insurance in Connecticut, Willimantic, Connecticut

Owning a recreational vehicle (RV) provides the ultimate level of freedom to travel in both comfort and style. But, before you hit the road in your new transportable home, it's vital to make sure it's properly insured. Protect your property—and your finances—by learning more about the ins and outs of RV insurance.

A Brief Guide to RV Insurance

What Is It?

As the name suggests, RV insurance is designed to offer financial protections relating to unexpected events, like collisions or theft. Typically, motorhome policies are split into three main categories—Class A, Class B, and Class C. Class A is designated for large, luxury motorhomes up to 75 feet in length, while Class B is designated for camper vans and similar small, compact vehicles. Class C recreational vehicles have a mid-range length and feature living space above the cab area.  There are also travel trailers, pop-up campers and truck bed slide in campers.

What's Covered?

insuranceRV policies cover many of the same aspects as car insurance. Even the most basic plans offer liability coverage that provides financial protections for injuries and property damage caused by your vehicle. There's also collision insurance to pay for repairs for your RV caused by an at-fault accident, as well as comprehensive coverage that covers the cost of repairs for non-collision incidents, like theft. You can purchase un-insured and underinsured protection for your motorhome in the event you're hit by a driver without any or inadequate insurance.

How Much Coverage Do You Need?

Each policy's coverage amounts are determined by a combination of vehicle specifics and state requirements. Your insurance plan needs to offer enough comprehensive and collision protection to cover the value of the RV. The state of Connecticut requires minimum coverages for bodily injury liability—$25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident and $25,000 for property damage liability.
