What are North Carolina's RV insurance requirements?

North Carolina’s auto insurance minimums also apply to motorhomes (those which have a motor and can drive independently). No matter how much you travel, you'll need to have proof of insurance with at least the following minimum coverages:

  • $30,000 in bodily injury per person

  • $60,000 in total bodily injury per accident

  • $25,000 in property damage per accident

In addition to these minimum liability requirements, North Carolina requires either Uninsured Motorist coverage (UM) or Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage (UM/UIM). The choice depends on the Bodily Injury limits (BI) you select. If your Bodily Injury liability limits are the state minimum of $30,000/$60,000, you'll be required to get UM coverage with the following minimums:

  • UM BI: $30,000 per person, $60,000 per accident

  • UM PD: $25,000

If your BI coverage limits exceed the state-mandated minimums (anything above $30,000/$60,000) your policy will be required to provide UM/UIM coverage with the following minimum limits:

  • UM/UIM BI: $50,000 per person, $100,000 per accident

  • UM/UIM PD: $25,000

What's included in a North Carolina RV insurance policy?

Required coverages

Liability coverage can pay for damages you cause when you’re at fault for an accident. Bodily injury coverage may pay for medical bills when you injure someone else, while property damage coverage may pay for damage you cause to objects, vehicles, and buildings that belong to others.

The other required coverage – either UM or UM/UIM depending on the limits you've selected – offer you additional protection if another driver causes an accident but doesn't have enough insurance to pay for the damage they cause. These coverages protect you if the other driver doesn't have insurance or if the other driver is insured but has insufficient insurance limits to cover all the damage.

Comprehensive and collision coverage

If you make payments on your RV, check your lease or loan terms to see what minimum limits they require for comprehensive and collision coverages.

Comprehensive coverage may cover your RV when it's damaged by forces you can't control, including fire, theft, severe weather, vandalism, or incidents with wild animals.

Collision coverage may pay for repairs to your RV that are the result of any collision, including moving vehicles, parked vehicles, buildings, and objects.

What if I live in my RV full-time?

If you live in your RV most or all of the year, there are full-time RV insurance policies designed for you. They offer many of the same coverages as available for recreational RV insurance in North Carolina; they also provide coverages similar to a homeowners policy to protect your primary residence. Key features of a full-time policy include:

  • Personal liability: The required liability insurance only protects your RV while you're driving. Full-time personal liability may also pay for damage you cause while your RV is parked.

  • Medical payments: May pay for medical bills if someone hurts themselves in or around your RV.

  • Loss assessment: May cover fees and costs from an RV association, such as shared costs to clean up common areas after a severe weather incident.
