Insuring your RV/Camper

The weather is starting to heat up, those spring and summer trips you have planned are not too far away. We know that being out in nature is the best way to recover from being stuck in the house all winter, making camping the go-to trip for family and friends. Some will be tenting while others will opt for the comfort of a camper or RV. If you choose the latter, here is some insurance advice before heading to the great outdoors.

  • While towing an RV/Camper, liability only is extended from your auto insurance
  • While the RV/Camper is unhitched at your primary residence, liability will only be extended from your homeowners insurance

  • An RV policy extends coverage in Canada
  • An RV policy does not extend liability coverage in Mexico
