What are Mississippi's RV insurance requirements?
Mississippi requires any RV that can operate independently to carry its own insurance. That means if you have a Class A, Class B, or Class C motorhome, you'll need to take out an RV policy that meets or exceeds the same liability coverage as a car:
$25,000 in bodily injury per person
$50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
$25,000 in property damage per accident
If you tow your RV behind another vehicle rather than operating on its own – like travel trailers or pop-ups – the law doesn't require you to have liability coverage. Instead, the liability coverage of the towing vehicle includes your trailer.
Peace of mind doesn't have to cost a fortune. Progressive offers RV liability insurance starting from just $125/year! * Get an online RV insurance quote today.
Mississippi RV insurance coverages
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage
Liability coverage protects others by paying for damages you cause when you're responsible for an accident. Bodily injury coverage may pay for others' medical bills, while property damage coverage may pay for repairs to buildings, vehicles, and other property. It can even pay for legal fees related to the incident.
Comprehensive and collision coverage
Comprehensive and collision, while not required by law, are usually required by financing agreements. If you're making payments on your RV, check the terms of your loan or lease agreement to understand what kind of coverage you’re required to carry.
Comprehensive coverage may pay for physical damage to your RV resulting from uncontrollable outside forces like vandalism, theft, fires, wildlife, and acts of nature. Comprehensive coverage is active regardless of whether the vehicle is in use, so you're protected even while the RV is parked.
Collision coverage may pay to repair damages resulting from a collision including a collision with another motorist, a parked car, a road sign, a building, or even with the roadway itself.
What if I live in my RV full-time?
Insurance is a little bit different if your RV is your primary residence. If you spend most of your time living in an RV, you should get full-time RV insurance. These policies carry most of the same coverage options as a recreational Mississippi RV insurance policy and offer additional coverages that cater to the full-timers life, including other protections while your RV is parked. Some of the differences include:
Personal liability: Unlike BI/PD, which is only active while you're operating the RV, full-time personal liability pays for damage you cause to others while the RV is parked.
Medical payments: Medical payments may pay for medical bills if guests, repair personnel, or other guests get hurt in or around your RV.
Loss assessment: This coverage may pay for costs associated with an RV association, like repairing or maintaining common areas after severe weather strikes.
