What are the benefits of RV insurance in Ontario?
Since your trailer is more than just your vehicle, you need insurance that covers more than a typical car insurance policy. Consider the following:
- You store things in your travel trailer that you wouldn't keep in your car, including jewellery, a computer, television, outdoor camping gear, or video camera.
- When parking your trailer at a campsite, you're liable for other people's safety around your trailer.
- If you have an accident while travelling, you'll need a place to stay while the trailer is being repaired.
Without an Ontario RV insurance policy, none of these would be covered in the event of a loss.
What is RV insurance?
- RV insurance protects you if you cause damage to others, including injuries. It also covers physical damage to the trailer/RV if sudden or accidental.
Do I need RV insurance?
- Yes, RV insurance is required by law to have at least liability coverage. Think of it as auto insurance. Finance companies, as well as trailer parks (if the RV is permanently parked) would require you to carry insurance.
What RV insurance do I need?
- You will need to speak with your broker to determine the proper coverage for you. It varies depending on many factors. For example, if it is parked or driven, if it is a towed trailer, motorhome, etc.
