What are New York's RV insurance requirements?

The state of New York requires that all drivers of motor vehicles, including Class A, B, and C motorhomes, carry minimum liability insurance. The coverage amounts are:

  • $25,000 for bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 for bodily injury for two or more people
  • $10,000 in property damage per accident

New York state drivers are also required to carry personal injury protection coverage which can help pay for medical bills and lost wages in the event of an accident and uninsured motorist coverage which kicks in if you’re involved in an accident with someone who doesn’t have insurance.

RV insurance doesn't have to break the bank. We offer liability policies for as little as $125/year*. Find out what your policy would cost with an online RV insurance quote for your motorhome or travel trailer.

New York RV insurance coverages

Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage

Bodily injury liability coverage pays for the cost of medical care for any injuries you cause or that someone sustains when you're at fault for an accident. Property damage liability helps pay the repair or replacement cost of another person's vehicle if you're at fault in an accident. Your liability coverage can also help cover legal costs if you're sued following an incident.

Comprehensive and collision coverage

Comprehensive and collision coverage helps pay for the repair or replacement cost of your RV if it's damaged in an accident. While this type of coverage isn't required by law, some lenders require you to carry coverage until the loan is paid off in full.

Comprehensive coverage protects against unexpected events outside your control, such as fire, theft, vandalism, weather related issues, glass breakage, and collisions with animals.

Collision coverage may cover damage from crashes, whether with another vehicle or a stationary object like a tree.

What if I live in my RV full-time?

Full-time RV insurance expands on the coverages of recreational RV insurance to meet the increased coverage needs of someone who lives in their RV for six months out of the year or more. Full-time RV insurance includes:

  • Personal liability: Personal liability coverage may cover you if you’re liable for another party’s injuries or damages that occur while the RV is parked.
  • Medical payments: Medical payments coverage may pay if someone gets hurt around or in your RV.
  • Loss assessment: If an RV association charges you a fee, loss assessment coverage may help pay those fees.
