Travel Trailers insurance coverage is significantly different than Auto or motorhome insurance, and can become quite simple. Why because when it comes to travel trailers and fifth wheels, much of the coverage comes from the towing vehicle. For example, the liability, medical payments, PIP, and uninsured and underinsured motorist all come from the towing vehicle. So why is Travel trailer insurance coverage so important? Because of the physical damage and specialty coverage.
