Motorcycle Insurance

Motorcycles have the same registration, title, and insurance requirements as cars. Motorcycles have the same access to roadways and must carry insurance to provide financial responsibility for any accident they may cause. Minimum liability limits are $30,000 per injured person, $60,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident. Higher liability limits and comprehensive coverage are at your discretion, but protecting your investment is always a good idea.

Boat Insurance

While boat insurance is not required in most states — including Texas — your lender may require insurance if you have a loan on the boat. Many marinas also require insurance if you wish to rent a slip or mooring.

Even without a lien or slip rental, it’s wise to protect your property against damage and loss from common risks, such as storms, theft, sinking, and collision. Covered property includes the boat hull, attached motor(s), specified equipment. In addition to coverage of the vessel, boat insurance will protect you against liability lawsuits and medical payments.

Recreational Vehicle Insurance

The term “recreational vehicle” covers a wide range of automobiles with living quarters. RVs can include motorhomes, trailers, campervans, fifth-wheel trailers, and pop-up campers.

If your RV has its own engine and a steering wheel, RV insurance is required in every state except Virginia and New Hampshire. These RVs are self-contained units you drive — or even live in — and fall into three classifications: A, B, and C.

  • Class A — Also known as motorhomes, these are the largest RVs with extensive features and the highest price tag. They look similar to a large bus from the outside and have a main side door.

  • Class B — Sometimes called campervans, these RVs are smaller than Class A’s, and have car-like characteristics, are considered easier to drive, typically have a raised roof, and have a van-like sliding entry door at the side.

  • Class C — This type of RV is built on a truck or van chassis and has a traditional truck cabin upfront for driving. Class C’s are often larger than Class B’s and have raised roofs that extend over the cab with an area for sleeping.
Each classification has minimum requirements to drive them legally. And premiums are calculated with many factors in mind, including class, value, if it is garaged, and how much you use it. RV insurance usually covers the same scenarios auto insurance covers — and similar to auto insurance, you’re required to carry standard liability insurance, with options for personal injury protection.
 

Part-time vs. Full-time RV Insurance

If you are using your RV as a second home — generally, if you spend 150 days or more using your RV per year — coverage would be more extensive and resemble a homeowners policy and cover the vehicle full-time. A part-time RV policy that covers the vehicle while on those trips may suffice if you make trips shorter in length and time.

Fifth-Wheel and Travel Trailers

Fifth-wheel and travel trailers are RVs that require a truck or car to become mobile. These types of RVs that attach to your vehicle would have coverage options under your auto policy.

Many RVs can cost as much as a house, and you’d want to protect that kind of investment. A Texell Financial insurance expert can help determine the right coverage for the RV you own. Give us a call at 254.774.5181 today, and be driving off into the sunset in no time.
