What are Minnesota's RV insurance requirements?
Minnesota requires all automobiles, including all Class A, B, and C motorhomes, to carry liability insurance. If a vehicle is capable of moving under its own power, it must meet the liability requirements. Minnesota requires:
- Minimum BI/PD Limits: 30/60/10
- Minimum UM/UIM Limits: 25/50
- Minimum PIP Limits: $40,000 ($20k Medical + $20k Economic Loss)
This type of coverage only applies to motorhomes. If you have a travel trailer, you aren't required to cover it through its own liability insurance; instead, the policy covering the towing vehicle will extend to the trailer in the event it causes damage in an accident.
What's included in a Minnesota RV insurance policy?
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage
Liability coverage is required by law in almost every state. Bodily injury liability insurance may cover medical expenses to others if you're at fault in a covered incident. Property damage liability coverage helps pay the repair or replacement costs of another person's property if you damage it. Every state has minimum coverage amounts that are required, but you can choose to carry higher coverage.
Comprehensive and collision coverage
Comprehensive and collision insurance may pay the cost of repairs for damage caused to your RV rather than another person's vehicle. Although comprehensive and collision coverages are optional, if you financed your vehicle, your lender might require a certain amount of coverage until the loan is repaid.
Collision coverage may cover damage incurred during a crash with another vehicle or object, such as a large pothole or a tree. It may also pay for single-vehicle accidents that don't involve another person.
Comprehensive coverage may cover damage caused by circumstances outside of your control, such as theft, vandalism, fire, or severe weather damage.
Underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage
If you're involved in an accident with another person that doesn't have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for damages, underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage will help pay the repair costs, as well as medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
What if I live in my RV full-time?
If you are living in your RV full-time, you might want to consider a bit more protection than is offered in a standard RV policy. Full-time RV insurance policies carry many of the same coverages but also have a few notable differences, including, but not limited to:
- Personal liability: Personal liability coverage may pay for any damage or injuries you're responsible for while you're parked. This differs from a recreational policy, which only covers these damages while you're driving the RV.
- Medical payments: Medical payments coverage may help pay medical costs for those injured in or around your RV while parked.
- Loss assessment: Some RV parks charge fees for repairs. Loss assessment coverage may help cover these expenses.
