Recreational Vehicle is a very broad term for many different types of vehicles used for fun and enjoyment. This term can be used to refer to:
Many people don’t consider the possibility of liability arising from the use of their motorized toys. Not only is it important to cover your family in the event that others are involved in an accident, but what happens if someone runs your ATV into a tree? What happens if your dirt bike is stolen? What happens if your 5th wheel experiences a tire failure while climbing up a mountain to a prime camping spot? What happens if someone using your ATV slams into another rider and vehicle while smoking through a forest trail?
Much like other personal auto policies, coverage for recreational vehicles include liability, uninsured and underinsured, collision, and other than collision coverage. Each carrier and each policy can be customized with many different pieces, so we will only include the basics for these policies.
Liability covers your bodily injury and property damage liability in an accident if you are found to be at-fault. Liability covers the other people involved in an accident, not you or your family/friends.
Uninsured Motorist covers you in an accident if someone who is involved in an accident leaves the scene of the accident and cannot be found, or that person does not have insurance.
Uninsured Motorist covers you in an accident if someone who is responsible for the accident has insurance but doesn’t have enough insurance to cover their liability for your medical or property damage expenses.
Comprehensive covers incidents to your vehicle for things other than collision. Some examples of coverage incidents include hail damage, a tree falling on your vehicle, and similar events.
Collision covers damage to your vehicle in the case of collision with an object or property, whether it’s another vehicle or a fixed object like a tree.
