If your unit is 0-10 years in age (travel trailer or fifth wheel) or 0-15 years in age (park model), you have the option to insure it for the replacement cost of a new unit.

Two Options for Settlement Amount: Replacement Cost or Actual Cash Value.

Replacement Cost will have no deduction for depreciation of any kind, this is conditional on insuring the unit for replacement cost of a brand new unit including taxes and any additions.

Actual Cash Value (ACV): The Actual Cash Value calculated at the time of the claim will be roughly equivalent to the current market value of a comparable used item, less any costs that would have made your item ready for sale.

Travel Trailer and Fifth Wheel Units 10+ years and Park Model Units 15+ years

The settlement will be based on Actual Cash Value, which will be calculated at the time of the claim. The ACV will be roughly equivalent to the current market of a comparable used item, less any costs that would have made your item ready for sale.

If you entered in a value that does not adequately cover the replacement cost of unit, you will be left paying for a portion of the claim. It is crucial to not underinsure your unit to lower the premium. The limit on policy is the MOST the insurance company will pay to replace your unit in the event of a claim.

A Stand-Alone trailer policy will offer you the best coverage for the best premiums. For instance, a stand alone policy will give you the option for the following coverages which your auto or homeowners policy may not cover:
