Question Just a thought on Insurance

How old do you think a motor home should be before you drop the full coverage and just carry just liability?

It's never too old unless you just have money lying around to buy a new one in case something happens . Of course, that's just my opinion and full coverage+ insurance on my RV is less than $450.00 a year...so I just keep it fully covered...including contents.

If you are prepared to cover the cost of repair if YOU wreck it, or are prepared to write it off, then just get liability. It all depends on your risk tolerance.

It's when you decide you can AFFORD to junk it without being repaired.

Because they're so different than cars and pick ups, I don't think running without collision insurance is a good plan either. On a coach the age of ours, due to hard to find parts (or non existent) and expensive labor, it's not going to take much at all to total it. Insured, I can hopefully recover enough to be back in business with a minimum of financial stress.

Without collision, it wouldn't take much of a collision to have a totaled coach that's worth very little - unless I wanted to spend a small fortune (likely more than it's worth) to get it repaired.

That said- I do go with a high deductible to keep the policy reasonable.
