A recreational vehicle (RV) can provide days, weeks, months, even years of enjoyment for you and your family. If you think that your RV doesn’t require insurance, you may want to think again. The term RV covers a wide range of vehicles from campers and motor homes to quads and even snowmobiles for the winter.
Any vehicle that requires a license plate and will travel on public roads is required by law to have insurance. There are a variety of levels that you can choose to cover your RV. While you may believe that snowmobiles and quads do not require insurance (if unplated), it’s still a responsible act to carry coverage and is also important to carry more insurance than the minimum required by law. In Ontario, all plated vehicles must carry insurance.
Why Purchase RV Insurance?
It provides valuable protection to you and your family when you own and operate recreational vehicles. Having basic liability coverage with your will often protect you in the event of damage caused by you to property belonging to other individuals as well as any potential personal injury you cause in the event of operating your recreational vehicle.
Owners of large motor homes understand that the sheer size puts other property, such as mailboxes or fences, at risk. Going beyond personal liability, any damage that is caused to the RV whether by you operating it, weather events, or other people causing damage to it, can be quite costly to repair. Having the right level of insurance will ensure that your investment in the recreational vehicle will be protected at all times.
For RVs that are considered off-road, it is actually quite essential to carry the right RV insurance. Even if you, as the owner, are the only individual to operate the RV, there is the risk of injury that could require hospitalization and medical expenses that aren’t covered by basic care. If any other individual will operate the RV, you put yourself at risk of liability should an accident occur while they are operating it.
