What are Georgia's RV insurance requirements?
In Georgia, RVs that can move under their own power (motorhomes) need to meet the same minimum insurance requirements as cars. If your RV is a Class A, Class B, or Class C motorhome, you'll need a policy with minimum coverage limits of at least:
- $25,000 in bodily injury per person
- $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
- $25,000 in property damage per accident
In addition to these required minimums, Georgia insurers are required to offer motorists uninsured motorist protection for Bodily Injury (UMBI) and Property Damage (UMPD) in the event you're in an accident with a driver who doesn't have insurance. The UM minimum limits are:
- UMBI: $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident
- UMPD: $25,000 with a $250, $500, or $1,000 deductible
You can choose to reject UMBI and UMPD coverages.
Unlike motorhomes, RVs that are towed – like travel trailers, pop-ups, and cargo trailers – aren't required to carry any of these coverages. Instead, any damage caused by your non-motorized RV would be included under the liability coverage of the vehicle that's towing it. However, that doesn't mean you should leave your travel trailer uninsured. Towing a trailer requires more skill and concentration than driving a car. Optional insurance coverages for your trailer can protect you and your investment if something unexpected happens.

What's included in a Georgia RV insurance policy?
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage
Liability coverage may pay for damages you cause others, up to the limits established in the policy. Bodily injury pays for medical bills, and property damage pays for damage to vehicles, buildings, and even legal fees related to the incident. The required coverage limits are minimums, but you may want to increase your coverage limits in order to better protect your assets.
Comprehensive and collision coverage
Comprehensive and collision coverages aren’t required by law but may be required by your loan or lease agreement.
Comprehensive coverage may pay for repairs when your RV is damaged by a force outside of your control, such as: fire, theft, vandalism, wildlife, or acts of nature.
Collision coverage may pay to repair the damage that's the result of a collision, including: accidents with other motorists, collisions with parked cars, and even single-driver collisions like rollovers or hitting a road sign during a wide turn.
What if I live in my RV full-time?
When your RV is your primary residence, you may want to consider what are called full-timers policies. Many of the coverages will be the same as those found on a recreational RV insurance policy in Georgia. Full-time RV insurance also offer some additional protections similar to those found on homeowners insurance. Some of the key distinctions are:
- Personal liability: Legally mandated BI/PD coverage only protects you while you're driving. Full-time personal liability also covers damage you cause others while the RV is parked.
- Medical payments: If guests, repair personnel, or others hurt themselves in or near your RV, medical payments coverage may pay for their medical bills.
- Loss assessment: This coverage may pay for costs from your RV association, like costs to restore or repair common areas.
