What are Washington's RV insurance requirements?
Washington state's RV insurance requirements are the same as those for auto insurance, mandating minimum liability limits of:
- $25,000 in bodily injury per person
- $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
- $10,000 in property damage per accident
If you have a travel or utility trailer, your towing vehicle's liability coverage applies instead. However, it's worth considering a separate trailer insurance policy so your trailer is protected by comprehensive and collision coverage. These coverages can protect your trailer from damage if something happens, like hitting another vehicle as you back up.

What coverages are available for a Washington RV insurance policy?
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage
Bodily injury and property damage liability coverage can help pay for someone else's medical bills, repair expenses, and more if you cause an accident while driving your RV in the event of an at-fault accident. Every motorhome insurance policy includes liability coverage.
Comprehensive and collision coverage
Comprehensive and collision are optional coverages you can add to your RV policy. However, if you lease or finance your RV, your lender may require you to carry them.
Comprehensive coverage can repair or replace your RV when events beyond your control damage it, such as vandalism, extreme weather, fire, and collisions with wild animals. Also, comprehensive protects your RV even when it's parked or in storage, so it can be helpful even if you live in the vehicle and don't drive it much.
Collision coverage, by comparison, protects your vehicle from damage that results from accidents (except wildlife collisions, which are covered under comprehensive). That can include collisions with other vehicles, objects like trees or road signs, or even accidents like rollovers that don't involve anyone else.
What if I live in my RV full-time?
If you live in an RV most or all the time, you may need more protection than a standard recreational Washington RV insurance policy offers. Progressive offers full-time RV insurance coverage for RVers who use their vehicle as a permanent residence. Full-timer's gives you more liability coverage for injuries that happen in or around your RV when it is parked, similar to the liability coverage you'd receive with a homeowners policy.
