Hi everyone -

We purchased a used RV last fall from its owner, so simply bought insurance from the owner's insurer without really researching the issue, in order to quickly complete the sale.

As we now have time to do the work, I find myself overwhelmed by the number of choices. It seems some organizations such as Good Sam and Family Motorcoach Assn offer insurance that includes roadside assistance, etc., but not sure exactly what this includes.

Is that the equivalent of prepaying repair bills for the vehicle parts of a motorhome such as ties or engine as opposed to the "home" part such as the refrigerator? or does it just mean that someone will tow you somewhere?

Would much appreciate information/suggestions, as neither of us is very mechanical and the MH we purchased is a 1993, though it had only 30,000 miles on it.

Thanx in advance.

Hi Bee:

Try a Search under "Insurance"!

There are any number of threads that will tell you more than you ever wanted to know!

To do the search, just go the magnifying glass icon at the top of the page (Find), click on it and enter "Insurance" then click "GO".

Good Luck and do come back with specific points if needed.

Hi Bee roadside assistance means they will fix a flat tire, but if they have to tow you they will usually get a qualified truck for the MH. Maybe to the nearest dealer (Ford, Chevy what ever your engine is) This does not mean inside house, but the engine, tires, etc. Read up on the forums as suggested by Bob above me.

Roadside assistance means, lock-out service, bring fule if you run out, tire changing with your spare tire, towing usually to the nearest repair facility, most also cover a second vehicle. If you check, the underwriter can tell you exactly what it will cover. They are not all exactly the same.
