I am currently looking to go with AAA for my RV insurance as I have recently switched my truck to them. Any advice on the best 5th wheel insurance? I also dropped Good Sam after being left with no road side service twice and switched to AAA for roadside.
Hello, I have USAA for Home and Auto, and they subcontract to Progressive for RV (and motorcycle) insurance. I have a 5th wheel and I believe it is about $400 a year for coverage. They don't send out Insurance cards, but they do send you a letter of Insurance coverage/Verification.

Ours (Liberty Mutual) doesn't give one out either.

They sent me one as a courtesy anyway. There are a few states where troopers give you the stink eye for not having one if you hit an inspection point. At least that was so a few years back.

As far as liability that is the case with USAA insurance. I do not have an insurance card for my trailer as the liability coverage is provided through the tow vehicles policy.

I also have a separate comprehensive RV coverage "rider" if anything happens to the trailer. But I do not have "contents coverage" as that is under my home owners policy. So I basically have three different policies, all from USAA, with each partially covering one trailer. Insurance is just plain weird...

Scootdawg,

Being outsourced to Progressive depends on what type of RV you own. Our travel trailer is under USAA. Anything with a motor in it, Class A / B / C is farmed out. But towed trailers can be covered by USAA. It saved us a bit of money when I called back USAA, and got a different representative, who clarified that for us....

OK...true confessions. I am currently going through the claim process where I was pulling my 5th Wheel RV and impacted a parked car at a campground. My RV was slightly damaged, but my TV was not damaged. I had full coverage on my RV through Company A and TV coverage through Company B. Company A will cover the damages on my RV, and Company B will cover the damages to the second party parked car. Both Insurance company's agree that it was the action of the TV that imparted the damage to the car. I do have cards for both insurance company's/policies. Needless to say my RV is now considered no longer brand new.

Wow. That is good news. When we bought the 5th wheel I traded in my Class C so I just called Progressive to switch policies. When this one is over I will be calling USAA to have the 5ver added. Thank you

X96,

If you damage your trailer while attached to your truck, the damage to your trailer is NOT covered under your truck policy. Ask your agent if you don't believe me. Your truck policy will not coverage damage to your trailer under any circumstances.

That is true. You must have comprehensive coverage on the RV itself. Only the liability coverage carries over to the RV. That covers the car you hit with the trailer but does not fix your trailer.

As far as I know the collision on your TV does not apply to your RV, but the liability on the TV applies to the RV. You must have separate collision for the RV and the card issued by the insurance companies only applies to the liability. After all, if you are in an accident no one else cares about the damage to your stuff, just that your insurance covers them.
