Some people love packing up the tent and camp stove and heading out for a weekend. They enjoy sleeping on the ground and cooking over a fire. But some of us like a little more luxury. We like the bathroom and kitchen to be similar to home, and we like the knowledge of four solid walls and a roof when we sleep. So, we purchase an RV to have a camping experience.
If you are one of those who prefers the RV, we'd like to talk with you about some safety tips for your next trip and insurance on that RV:
1. If you have an awning as part of your RV, inspect it prior to leaving for the trip. Sun can cause significant damage to an awning, which might be covered by your comprehensive RV insurance. When there are strong winds or storms, close that awning to prevent damage. That will help reduce your risk of filing a claim, which can, in turn, increase your premium.
2. Are you carrying gear such as fishing equipment and bikes? Take a few minutes and document what you have in the RV in case there is a fire or theft. Having a personal inventory helps insurance adjusters determine how much to reimburse you for after filing a claim.
3. Do you know the height and length of your RV? Take some time to practice driving and parking. Knowing these dimensions will protect you from accidents such as hitting a low bridge overhang or hitting a parked car. In turn, safer driving may lead to lower insurance premiums.
So, before you head out for that RV camping trip, take a little time and prepare with these three tips. Save yourself some stress while on vacation, and save yourself some money in the long run.
