Class B RV Insurance

Class B motorhomes, also known as camper vans, are the most compact and agile of the motorhome types, built on a van chassis to offer convenience and efficiency. Their smaller size makes them easier to drive and more fuel-efficient, appealing to those who enjoy spontaneous and flexible travel experiences. Despite their compact nature, Class B motorhomes are fully equipped to provide essential living amenities, including sleeping areas, basic kitchens, and sometimes compact bathrooms. Insuring Class B motorhomes entails considering their dual nature as both vehicles and living spaces, necessitating a blend of auto and home insurance to adequately cover the unique risks they face on the road.

Understanding Premiums & Deductibles

Insurance premiums for Class B motorhomes are typically lower than those for larger RVs but can vary based on the motorhome’s value, the coverage selected, and the owner’s driving history.
