While recreational vehicles (RVs) may provide a flexible and convenient way of exploring the world, they can also be dangerous. Before embarking on a journey in your RV, consider the following safety tips:
- Practice driving. Piloting an RV may be very different from driving a car. Take time to ensure you are comfortable with your vehicle.
- Maintain your vehicle. Check your tires, lights, belts, oil levels and windshield wipers before embarking on a trip, and adhere to all recommended maintenance schedules.
- Know your limits. Be aware of your RV’s height and weight capacity.
- Drive carefully. Avoid excessive speeds or sudden maneuvers.
- Secure your RV. Given that RVs may double as a residence, ensure your doors and windows are locked to prevent break-ins.
You should also ensure your RV is covered by a suitable RV insurance policy. While somewhat similar to standard auto insurance, RV coverage may differ in several ways. To review your RV coverage, contact the office.
