Although it's not the most thrilling aspect of living in a camper, getting insurance is necessary. Due to the wide range of variables influencing your coverage options, campervan insurance can be a difficult subject to understand. We'll concentrate on a few of the most crucial ones for keeping you and your investment secure.
When purchasing insurance for your van, there are a few things that are generally a good idea to have. These consist of the following:
Learning the Local Laws That Apply to You
According to state regulations, some insurance companies want additional information, such as the van's weight, a description of the vehicle conversion, or particular testing. Make sure to research state legislation or request a list of criteria from your insurance agent.
Ideally, it Would be Best to Title your Van as an RV
Typically, you may go through procedures, paperwork, and red tape to title your van as a motorhome. The number of formalities you must complete to register your car as a motorhome varies by state. A statement, an inspection, images, a weight slip, or all of the above are required by some states.
Secure Photographs For Documentation
Take thorough pictures of your van's interior, outside, and personal stuff. Before committing to your policy, most insurance companies may request to see these pictures. Keep these pictures somewhere accessible in case you ever need to lodge a claim and find yourself needing them.
Keep Your Installation Receipts
Documentation needs a thorough paper trail of all the items you bought for your build and, preferably, everything you store in your rig. Before committing to your coverage, most insurance providers may request to view a list of bills.
Sometimes, the amount of paperwork insurance companies require seems a touch excessive. It comprises all the bills paid during the construction process, the number of labor hours, and a list with receipts for every item kept within the car.
Think About Purchasing an Anti-Theft System
It's good to have a "panic button" next to you in bed, in case you hear someone loitering outside your van, in addition to the obvious security against having your vehicle stolen. Additionally, it can frequently lower insurance premiums by an amount that justifies its cost.
Generally, RV insurance also covers professionally converted vans, whether built specifically for you or following a predetermined layout. Just remember to keep your professional camper van conversion invoices, receipts, billing statements, and proof of purchase that details the purchase price.
