Do you need RV insurance in Florida?

Before you’re able to get behind the wheel of your motorhome, Florida requires that all motorists carry coverage for personal injury protection and property damage liability. Personal injury protection (PIP) may pay for injuries you sustain in an accident, up to the limits of your policy and regardless of fault. Property damage liability coverage may pay for damages you cause while driving your motorhome, up to your coverage limit.

Required: Personal injury protection (PIP)What it coversYour medical bills, lost wages, death benefits, and other services if you’re injured in a motor vehicle accident.Amount$10,000
Required: Property damage liability coverage (PD)What it coversDamage you cause to another vehicle or property while driving your motorhome.Amount$10,000
Optional: Bodily injury liability coverage (BI)What it coversInjuries you cause to someone else while driving your motorhome.Amount$10,000 per person, $20,000 per accident
Optional: Uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage (UM/UIM BI)What it coversInjuries to you or your passengers caused by a motorist with no insurance or not enough coverage.Amount$10,000 per person, $20,000 per accident

Florida doesn’t mandate coverage for bodily injury and liability or uninsured/underinsured bodily injury, but they are important coverages. Bodily injury liability coverage may pay for injuries you cause to others while driving your motorhome and uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage can cover you if a driver with no insurance or not enough coverage damages your RV or causes injuries. Note that bodily injury liability coverage is required if you purchase uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage.

Is travel trailer insurance required in Florida?

Since your travel trailer is towed, and not driven like a motorhome, there are no state requirements for insuring a travel trailer in Florida. A policy with PIP and property damage liability coverage is needed for the vehicle used to pull your travel trailer.

Comprehensive and collision coverage

If you're financing your motorhome or travel trailer, your lender typically requires RV comprehensive and collision coverage. These coverages aren't required by Florida law, but can be valuable for protecting your RV against physical damage. Comprehensive covers events out of your control, including theft, vandalism, fire, hitting an animal, and weather-related issues. Collision covers your RV if you collide with another vehicle, tree, fence, guardrail, or any object.

How much is RV insurance in Florida?

The average premium for a 12-month RV insurance policy at Progressive for 2023 was $1305 for a motorhome and $733 for a travel trailer. While Florida may be more costly for RV insurance compared to other states, Progressive offers RV insurance for as little as $125/year.* Your policy's price depends on many factors, such as:

  • Type and model: The more expensive your RV is to repair or replace, the more you pay to insure it. Larger, newer RVs often cost more than smaller, used RVs; and motorhomes typically cost more than travel trailers or pop-ups.
  • Claims history: Your history of filing insurance claims may affect your rate.
  • Driving record: Violations can increase the price of your policy.
  • Location: Your ZIP code can influence the cost of RV insurance.

What if I live in my RV full time?

If your RV is your permanent residence, you may need additional coverage that a recreational RV policy doesn't offer. However, a full-time RV insurance policy may offer protection when your RV is your primary home with the follow coverages:

  • Personal liability: Liability coverage on a full-timers policy can protect against liability claims if you're responsible for someone else's injuries or damages, even when your RV is parked
  • Medical payments: If someone hurts themselves in or around your RV, medical payments coverage may pay for their medical bills
  • Loss assessment: This coverage can pay for fees or charges from your RV association, up to $5000
