Colorado Recreational Vehicle Insurance
A common practice for RV owners is to insure their RV under their current auto policy. But too often the owner does not take the time to read what and how much is covered under their auto policy.
In many instances, RV’s covered under auto policies are not adequately covered. One misconception RV owners have is that the personal property in their RV will be covered under their homeowners policy. This is true, but, coverage on personal property is limited when the property is kept somewhere other than the “residence premises.” Often the limit in a standard policy is very low and the usual policy deduction would apply.
To insure proper and adequate coverage, a RV owner should add separate Colorado Recreational Vehicle Insurance coverage to their current auto policy or secure a policy specifically for RV's.
If the Colorado Recreational Vehicle owner’s insurance carrier does not have this type of coverage available, there are insurance companies that specialize in RV coverage. Usually the cost is minimal, especially compared to the alternative of finding out the RV and it’s possessions are not covered after a loss occurs.
