Traveling in an RV is a great way to explore the country while maintaining all the comforts of home.  But how do you know you have the best coverage for your needs?  After all, RV insurance is very different from standard auto insurance and you don’t want to be find out too late that your coverage isn’t sufficient.

RV America encourages individuals to call to get quotes.  While potential customers may request a quote online the processing time may be up to a full business day.  Payments must also be processed over the phone or by a mailed check.  With specified customer service availability, members are limited to actively managing their accounts during these hours.  This customer support setup is attractive to older individuals who prefer real-time, person-to-person contact.  While there is a general information email address, the lack of online account management can be considered a nuisance by a younger or more internet savvy population.  

However, RV America works with a large number of top-insurance providers and coverage can be tailored to meet the needs of occasional, seasonal, and full time RV travelers.  Policies can also be requoted and updated as member needs change.  RV America also caters to their younger and more active members by providing coverage on other types of vehicles, such as: boats, personal watercrafts, motorcycles, and ATVs.

As health becomes an issue, RV owners will likely spend less time on the road and will want to be closer to family, friends, and care providers. Full time RV users may either choose to use the vehicle as a primary residence or store the vehicle for longer periods of time. Fortunately, RV America can provide quotes on that policies that include storage discount on premiums or reduced rates for those who use their RV for occasional travel. RV America’s large network of insurance provides guarantees that your plan can adapt as your needs evolve.

Pros:

  • One call provides multiple quotes.  RV America works with a network of top insurance providers and do the comparison shopping for you.  

  • Insure all of your recreational vehicles.  While RV America started out with a focus solely on RV insurance, they have expanded to providing coverage for boats, personal watercrafts, motorcycles, standard and vintage autos, and even mobile homes.    

  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance is standard for all members.

  • High Liability Limits ensures members are fully covered in the case of major accidents.

  • Customizable Coverage. Once you provide your information to a service representative, they will pull those policies that best meet your needs and explain all of the options.  Choose additional coverage options to further customize the coverage.

  • Storage options are available. Seasonal or occasional travelers do not need to pay for collision or liability coverage while their RV is in longterm storage.  Let the service representative know how frequently you plan to use your RV so they can provide those policies with storage options.

Cons:

  • Limited customer service hours.  Service representatives are only available Monday thru Saturday from 7 am to 6 pm (PST).  However, individuals may email info@rvainsurance.com at anytime.

  • Lack of online account management.  There is no option for policyholders who want to interact in real time with the company through the website.  It is also not possible to submit claims or pay premiums online.  

  • Option Overload.  This is both a pro and a con.  As RV America works with so many insurance providers, there is a wide range of policy options from which to choose.  Make sure you have a list of your top priorities before calling for a quote.  These topics should include: type of vehicle, how frequently you plan to travel, the value of items you plan to transport, what you plan to tow (if anything), and an understanding of what fits your budget.

Bottom Line:

Since 1979, RV America has been working with top insurance providers to locate the best policies at the top value for their members.  When you call for a quote, a dedicated service representative will explain the coverage options available through their partnership network and answer any policy questions to guarantee that you are satisfied with your choice.  RV America takes care of the comparison shopping for you!

Initially focused on providing quality RV insurance, RVA listened when their members asked for help finding other policies.  Currently they provide coverage on all types of recreational vehicles.  This means you can find the right coverage for your RV, boat, and motorcycle with one call.    

We highly recommend RV America for new RV owners who want to easily compare multiple plans or for those who own a variety of vehicles and want one provider to manage all of their policies.  We also encourage RV owners who have had the same insurance provider for years to contact RV America to make sure they are getting the best value for their current coverage.
