Insuring Your RV

Your auto insurance company may offer RV insurance, but I recommend filling out an application at American RV Insurance. This company will help you compare rates and find the best policy for your unique situation (including full-time RVing), and if you move, you can simply call them and they'll find you a new policy without you having to go through the process of shopping for insurance all over again.

Here are some additionally resources to help you shop for RV insurance:

RV Warranties

Even if your RV's factory warranty has expired, you may still be able to qualify for an after-market warranty.

We have the Good Sam Extended Service Plan, which we inherited from our RV's former owners. It has been a life-saver for us several times and has covered nearly everything we've had repaired, which you can read more about in my blog post, "Everything That's Gone Wrong with Our RV".

Another great place to find an RV warranty is Wholesale Warranties. This company shops and compares RV warranties for you to help you find the one that will provide you with the coverage you need at the best price.
