Indiana RV insurance
The Hoosier State has long been known as the RV capital of the world since it's home to many of the best-known brands' production lines. But regardless of whether you live in Elkhart or Indianapolis, you're going to need insurance if you're planning to travel in an RV. Indiana requires it for many RVs, and it's worth considering even for RVs that are exempt from the state's minimum coverage law. Learn more about Indiana RV insurance below.
What are Indiana's RV insurance requirements?
Like most states, Indiana divides RVs into broad categories based on whether the RV can be driven under its own power. RVs that have an engine and can be operated independently are called motorhomes, and they need to meet the same basic insurance requirements as a car. If you own a Class A, Class B, or Class C motorhome, you'll need Indiana RV insurance with coverage 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 minimum liability coverage, all RV insurance policies in Indiana must offer uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage that meets the same minimums as liability. The coverage isn't required by law, but it's included in the policy unless you specifically reject it in writing.
If your RV is a trailer – like a fifth wheel, travel trailer, or pop-up – rather than a motorhome, you don't have to buy a separate policy for it because any damage it causes would be covered by the liability coverage of the towing vehicle. However, driving with a trailer is riskier than driving without one, and trailer accidents can quickly become expensive. Having an RV policy offers more protection and can provide coverages that the policy of the towing vehicle does not provide.
Our RV liability policies start at just $125/year*. Customize a policy and see your price for RV insurance with an online RV insurance quote!
Indiana RV insurance coverages
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage
Liability coverage protects you financially by paying for damage you cause when you're responsible for an accident. Bodily injury coverage pays for medical bills if you injure someone, and property damage covers damage to personal property that belong to others. It can also pay legal fees related to an accident.
The coverage limits required by law are minimums, and most insurance companies offer higher limits as well. A policy with higher limits will likely cost more each month but offers better protection if you cause an accident. You may want to consider higher limits if you can afford them, especially for RVs, since damages from a large vehicle tend to add up quickly. Try to get limits that adequately protect your assets.
Comprehensive and collision coverage
Comprehensive and collision coverage aren't mandated in Indiana, but lenders nearly always require that you carry them while you're making payments on the vehicle.
Comprehensive coverage pays for repairs when your RV is damaged by forces you can't control, including vandalism, theft, fire, natural disasters, and collisions with wildlife.
Collision coverage pays for repairs when your car is damaged in a collision, including collisions with other vehicles, and objects like trees or road signs.
What if I live in my RV full-time?
If you live in your RV most of the time (more than six months a year), you should consider a full-time RV insurance policy. This kind of RV insurance is tailored for full-timers with a blend of typical RV coverages and additional coverages similar to those found in homeowners insurance. This blend better protects an RV that functions as both a vehicle and a primary residence. Important features include:
- Personal liability: Full-time policies offer personal liability coverage that protects you if you cause damage or an accident while the RV is parked
- Medical payments: Medical payments coverage may pay medical bills if guests are injured in or near your RV
- Loss assessment: Full-time insurance also covers association costs, like if your RV association requires members to help pay for damage to common areas
